Last year Nissan announced to great fanfare the first phase of its Heritage Parts program. Through its NISMO division, the company would re-issue parts for the R32 Skyline GT-R, and if the program was successful enough Nissan would expand the program to other models as well. Response must have been good, because today Nissan announced that Heritage Parts would now include R33 and R34 Skyline GT-R models.
As with the R32, the initial parts list is small. The R33’s includes mostly hoses and lines, but also specialized parts like air guides for the brakes, headlamp seals, and window regulators. Impressively, an entire new front bumper cover is available as it was for the R32.
For the R34, Nissan will offer select hoses and lines as well, in addition to seals for the body work and a turn signal assembly. Many of these items are required to pass Japan’s strict Shaken inspections.
The R32 has the most extensive parts catalog, which makes sense considering it’s the oldest model. Newly added parts include bumper reinforcements and power window switches. That’s on top of everything from wiring harnesses to a metal sleeve for the speedometer cable.
It’s exciting to see that NISMO Heritage Parts wasn’t just a one model burst, and that Nissan believes in the program enough to expand it to other models. While some prices are steep, many of these items are very limited in production and not mass produced like when the cars were new. The parts are available for order at NISMO retailers in Japan. For a full list of available parts, see the NISMO website.
