In recent years we’ve seen 2000GTs, Skyline GT-Rs, Z432s, Cosmo Sports, FJ40s and Centurys cross the auction block at some of the most high-profile auctions in the US. This weekend, a new contender will try to make a play for becoming the next blue chip JNC. A 1987 Nissan President will be up for bidding at Auctions America in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
The top dog in Nissan luxury, the President was perhaps best known as a chauffeured ride for government officials, captains of industry, and yakuza bosses. And this is no ordinary President; it’s a Sovereign VIP, the highest grade in the lineup and built for only the final five years of the H250 chassis. That may seem like a long time, until you realize that the generation began in 1973. It’s so VIP, it says so right there in the name.
It has been described by the seller as “museum quality” and is said to have all paperwork for registration in the US. The mileage is said to have been authenticated, but what that mileage is was not listed.
Win this auction and in addition to a 4.4-liter V8, you will be treated to such amenities as reclining and heated rear seats, a rear-mounted cassette deck and TV, a remote control for the dash-mounted stereo tuner and, naturally, a full set of doily seat covers. Then all you’ll need is a white-gloved driver to shuttle you around town. You can find more photos and the full listing on the Auctions America website.
