I wonder who the lucky sod will be that ends up with this:

http://www.trademe.co.nz/Trade-Me-Motor ... 360617.htm

$10k for a fully road legal (in NZ) DR30 RS-X is a pretty damn good deal.

Yes we did. From 1981 to 1987. I owned a '86 model in the same colour as pictured. It had a 2.8 EFI N/A motor producing 105kW. No 4wd though. I drove mine for almost 10 years and enjoyed every minute of it.

The R30 was also quite successful on the track, racing against RX7s, Audi Quatros and Cossworth Fords in an open class.

The 4 door sedan was used in rallying here in South Africa. The above image is in fact the Skyline that competed in South Africa and was driven by Hannes Grobler and he won the championship in 1986. This specific car is still racing today.

That car looks very familiar I think this one has been imported to Adelaide / Australia, I saw it coming out of a car park on North Terrace in the city. at the time i thought it was just a HR30 with some funky body kit.

The Ford Falcon ute and the R31 GTS 2's in the background convince me further.

We also had the Falcon ute (we call it a bakkie, not a ute) here in SA and some R31GTSs made it here too. But, judging by the fender mirror, I don't think that picture is of a South African car. We don't put mirrors on fenders. :lol:

Here is some better pics of an SA car. This is a '86-'87 model. The tail lights and interior were the biggest changes for this facelifted model.

that's a nice looking R30.

Did the South African cars come standard with the 'hot plate' tail lights? or the same lights as the Australian MR30 models?

Also do they have MR30 on the chassis stamp? A friend of mine was said he saw a white R30 coupe here with MR30 on the chassis, it had us confused.

Out of curiosity how much does a coupe sell for in South Africa? I don't know why Nissan Australia couldn't sell them here as well seeing they raced DR30's in the Bathurst.


....
Going through the last pictures image link I found this

It has to be the one I saw, going by the plates :D If only I knew where to find the owner so I could talk more about his unique looking R30

Yip. The hotplate taillights were standard. The facelifted model, as in the picture, had the ribbed ones. Before that the lens was flat. Not sure about the Chassi stamp. Never bothered to look. A good example would set you back about US$8000, but others can be had for US$ 3000 upwards.

Here is one for US$5500. Seems pretty sweet.

I was looking online at SA R30s for sale and there do seem to be some really good deals on them down there. Any idea what engines they were sold with?

Some ads said 2.8L (L28?), some said nothing at all...

The Coupe (GTX) was sold with the L28i. The SGLi, 4 door sedan, had the same engine. The SGL sedan had the carb fed L28. There was also some L18 and L20 Skylines in sedan and fastback models sold here.
