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.

Mat is is the best he was right on target and video descriptions are perfect. Shipping was alot faster than I thought it would be, as JCD didn't mess around. My van was at port and ready to go. I will be using JCD again soon, got my van now I want a car.
I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice
What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience. Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.
I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!
They've somehow made what was expected to be complicated, so simple. I got all the info I needed and imported my first JDM car without a single problem. Matthew was super fast to respond and always had an answer.
A must for exporting cars from Japan. I've exported various models with these guys now and they have been exactly how we wanted them with no underlying issues or surprises when they arrive. Very pleased and will continue to use these guys in the future!
This was my first time importing a vehicle for my personal use and naturally I was leary about who to go through. After looking through a few other places and after getting in touch with a longtime customer of theirs I decided to try these guys out. I can say without a doubt I'm glad I did. They are definitely professional and know their craft when it comes to getting you your dream car. Everything from getting cars inspected and bidding was completely transparent and went smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the car I bought and I hope down the line I'll be able to purchase another using these guys!! Thanks for all you guys do!!!
I have already purchased 3 cars from this company and have a 4th on the way. They are very nice, extremely helpful, and work around your budget. I worked with Yoshi. He is very nice and made me a lot more comfortable with the wire transfers (after purchasing the vehicle), because let’s be honest, it is nerve racking to send money to a foreign country and have to wait several weeks for your vehicle to arrive. However, everything has gone smoothly, and they make it very easy to import the car of your dreams. I will continue to go with Japan Car Direct for all my japan car needs 😀
Amazing people to work with. Answered any question I could think of and never left me hanging in during the entire process. I was always kept in the loop. Matt and his team are superb in every way. From picking my car out at auction to picking it up at port they were always there and now I have great little cappuccino to drive around now! I will be using them again to bring in another car in the near future that's for sure.
