Original 1990 Nissan 240SX With 41k Miles For $5.5k Sounds Tempting

Our used cars searches are filled with classics or exotics that cost a pretty penny. But every once in a while, we come across some very affordable rides that are worthy of sharing, such as this 1990 Nissan 240SX.

Better known as the Silvia in markets outside North America, it’s offered for sale in Canada. And it won’t burn a hole in your pockets either, because the asking price is just CAD $7,500, which equals to USD $5,569 at today’s exchange rates.

Also Watch: Fondly Remembering The Nissan Silvia (And 240SX We Got Stateside)

Allow us to walk you through some of the key aspects that should interest a potential buyer. While the Z series and GT-R grab all the attention from Nissan’s lineup, the pop-up headlight Silvia / SX is a decent rear-wheel drive sports car. Powered by a 2.4-liter inline four, this example is said to be in original condition aside from the exhaust system. Furthermore, it’s been with the same owner ever since it left the dealer lot in 1990, and has only 66,156 km (41,107 miles) on the odo.

Now, there are some issues that its future owner will have to take care of, such as the rust on the left side, but that’s to be expected from a 30 year old car. If everything the seller claims in the listing checks out (one should always be vigilant with used cars), it doesn’t sound like a bad deal.

Thanks to Thomas for the tip!

    This was my very first car. I loved it until I had to sell it. The only issue I had was in snow.

    I never liked these Nissan vehicles, but it is quite comical to find 180 MPH on the speedometer while a 1990 Mercury Sable sedan only had 85 MPH on its speedometer.
