JDM VIP PDQ: 1991 Nissan President

The Nissan President (日産・プレジデント Nissan Purejidento) was a JDM only luxury limousine built from 1965 through 2010 as an comfortable safe space for executives, diplomats and gangsters. Somehow, this HG50 generation President made its way over to Canada, where it is now 25 years old and legal for importation to the USA.  Find this 1991 Nissan President offered for $6,000 CAD ($4,521 USD today) in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Frankly, there hasn’t been this much excitement about legal age since Britney Spears turned 18, but with 2016 on the calendar, all kinds of 25 year old Japanese classics are now of legal age for importation to the USA — such as the R32 Skyline, and this 1991 Nissan President.

The President is powered by a Nissan 4.5 liter VH45DE V8, the same engine used in the Infiniti Q45.  The VH45DE produces 278 horsepower and 294 ft-lbs of torque according to the spec sheet — but the truth is that it produces something closer to 310 horsepower and 330 ft-lbs of torque

Wow, this thing has FM, AM & a TV from the factory?  If you can get past the right hand drive setup and Japanese instructions on the climate control, this could be quite the fun cruiser.
