N12 Romano - Old nugget

Post by photoglossy » Mon Aug 14, 2017 6:15 pm

After 8 years away from driving N12's, I'm back!
I have decided to sell my much loved SR20VET P12 Primera 20V in favour of a 1.3 Carbie 86' Pulsar... what has the world come to!

Purchased this clean old fella today (pickup in 3 weeks time). I'm in Auckland and the car is in Christchurch, so a bit of a road trip is in order.

Some slight damage to the right front corner which looks easily repairable, and one little rust spot, otherwise she's a minter with 68,000km on the clock and only 2 owners.

Looking forward to getting back into an n12 drivers seat.

Wasn't after an ET, just something cheap and reliable.
$1500. Needs a new front corner indicator (lucky i've had one for many years now) and a new 1/2 size radiator, which I also have spare from back in the day.

Looking good mate! Welcome back to the addiction, photoglossy. If you're after a center console let me know, I've got one with the brackets here if you need.

First wash yesterday. Will need a good polish to remove residue from an older polish job, but came up nice.

Look in the spare wheel well. Mint as, and found all the original tools along with the original owners wheel changing check list haha
Plenty of foam, i can only assume to stop rattles.
