Premium JDM Classics Part 2
Nissan took the already popular Fairlady Z (Datsun 240Z in the USA) and dropped in the DOHC S20 engine from the GTR to create the Z 432. The 432 stands for 4 valves/cylinder, 3 carburetors, and 2 cams, while the R version had additional weight removed from places such as the fenders, doors and hood. Some estimates of production numbers put the total number of Z 432R’s produced at 23 units. The acrylic windows of this Z 432R show cracks which is a testament to its original factory parts.
Made in an era when Nissan was known for incorporating the newest technologies into their cars, the Leopard Ultima had all the gadgets, some still considered premium by today’s standard. Some of those features include optional cell phone, 6” TV, CD changer and cruise control. Only around 30 of these cars were created while sunroof models in gold number less than 10. The vehicle has been fully restored by the shop.
The only car on the list that purists might thumb their nose at as it is a replica of the first year Skyline GT-R. This “replica” is based on a Skyline GT and care has been taken to fully replicate the original down to every detail. These include spot welding of the body in the same locations, and fully equipping the interior and exterior with genuine GT-R parts. The engine however is an L20 that has been bored and stroked to 2.6 liters. The asking price of this “replica” pays homage to the colossal price tag an original would fetch.
The ultimate Skyline model until Nissan brought back the GT-R in 1989. The HR31 Skyline was powered by the famed “RB20DET-R” engine which created 210ps at 6400 rpm and was the blueprint to the RB engines of the GT-R. This car was a homologation model for Group A Touring Car racing and only 823 units were produced by Nissan. This specific car only has 30,000 km on the odometer and is owned by the president of R31 House.
An original “Hakosuka” tuned by the legendary founder of Shiraishi Engineering. The body and interior remain true to the original modified race car, while the S20 engine has been further tuned to modern standards and now displaces 2271cc.

I can't recommend JCD enough. Mathew was a fantastic person to work with. As a newbie to the Japanese auctions, I was quite naïve and had far too many questions. Mathew was kind, knowledgeable, and patient through the entire process. My Minicab arrived last week and I am quite pleased. I would not hesitate to work with Japan Car Direct again in the future. Thank you Mathew!! Jay A.
I purchased a suzuki carry from here.. They made the whole process so easy..fantastic communication,and I got what I wanted.. highly recommend using this company for your next purchase. 5 stars
IF YOU ARE OVERLY CAUTIOUS READ THIS I am over the top and I am aware of it. Matthew probably should get an award for dealing with me. I dig into everything and am used to fighting for fairness at auto auctions here in the USA - we own a small dealership. Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust. He’s a rare breed: a true professional and exceptional at what he does. The world NEEDS more like him in every industry. Matthew is one of our most valued partners now, as we strive to bring JDM to Rochester and the Great Lakes. I’m a tough case, I openly admit, but he worked through my caution and I’m now very happy to purchase through him. Call me if you want, I’ll recommend Matthew to anyone. Drew

I dig into everything and am used to fighting not to get taken at local auctions (I own a dealership and believe strongly in integrity). Early into my fist purchase (of many) Matthew earned my trust.

I always wanted a Land Cruiser ! Mathew helped me find 2 beautiful trucks from the Japanese auction. Had them delivered to Freeport, TX last week. He was amazing to work with. Fast response time on bids, super easy to work with, he has a lot of experience and answered all questions promptly. Will be working with JCD more in the future to purchase more vehicles !
Very pleased with my experience with JCD. Mat helped me with my purchase of a Honda Beat and its shipping to the port of Baltimore. Everything was seamless and I would (and already have) recommended this company to several friends.
Thanks to JapanCarDirect for the opportunity, Yoshi took well care of my requests with a incomparable patience and fast follow up. Will definitely pass the word around !!! 👌🇨🇦🇯🇵
Fantastic service, helped me through the process of importing my JZX100 to the UK, Everything was clear and fees were low, worth every penny though, fantastic and couldn't have asked for more!
I just picked up my dream campervan from port and have to say that Japan car direct was with me the entire way. I felt so supported all my questions were answered and I could not imagine doing something like this without them. I highly recommend the whole team, trust them and would encourage anyone to use there services.
Mathew and all stuff JCD are best. I ordered 4 cars to UA. Support was 24H. The team did its best to solve my problems. They are really good. Now I can recommend them. Unique condition of the car. P.S. sorry but the photo was taken immediately upon arrival. Thank you again!
I just wanna thank Matthew and the whole team at Japan Car Direct, they always went above and beyond in making sure their clients are always happy and informed about the vehicles they are purchasing. I am still in the buying process but so far 5/5 definitely. I’ll keep everyone posted when I do find a car!
Do yourself a favor, call Mathew at Japan Car Direct. Let him take the worry about doing business over seas off your plate. Not knowing anything about importing vehicles from Japan, I spent countless hours studying and trying to figure it all out. The headaches were too much! After Mathew walked me through the process it was a piece of cake. We've already bought a couple and are now buying more with complete confidence. Thanks guys, much much appreciated.
Can not recommend these guys enough. I dealt with Matt, who was extremely helpful and patient with all of my stupid questions. The way they have the whole process is so convenient, especially with the live video translations of the auction sheets. I will absolutely be returning to them in the future.
Trustworthy group here! They made it easy from point a to b. So glad this was the first group I tried as I have heard horror stories about the import process. Highly recommended.
Yoshi and team were patient in helping me find the right car (green 2016 Prius 4WD) and get me through the process. Flawless service, prompt response to communications, on delivery the car was better than expected, very close to new looking. Their recommended partners for shipping and entry into NZ were on the ball too. Highly recommended! Pro tip: don't mess around; decide exactly what you want, then bid to win.
