The 430 is a great platform: you can basically can’t do anything wrong and it will always work out fine. Just take a look at this roofchopped Gloria 430:
Even though the 430 never received a convertible all it takes to make one is by removing the roof. Does it look like a sloppy job? Not at all. 😉
Back in the late 80s AMG was one of the baddest tuners around: with their bulky lowered Mercs they really showed how tuning is supposed to be done. Naturally another tuner of that era called Koenig made even more outrageous designs including the Koenig Testarossa which looked a bit more out of space than Doc’s Delorean time machine.
So naturally people stared copying the AMG and Koenig designs, including this beautiful Cedric 430:
Not only does it feature an enormous sharknose and lip, it also includes the typically Koenig side air intakes!
Seen from the rear it becomes apparent how ridiculously wide those rear fenders are! (more…)by banpei with 1 comment
Apparently a kaido racer is never finished. Guoria430 removed all bumpers, tail lights and the grille to make his new modifications to the Gloria 430. He already made some holes in the rear section so I expect him to put a couple of Leopard gills in there.
As a reference, this is what the Gloria looked like 8 months ago:
Not much is needed to make a Nissan Gloria SG Brougham look like a kaido racer, just add some deep dished wheels and replace the headlights with tilted ones!

And in this size it looks even better on your desktop. 😉

The Nissan Gloria Brougham Y30 only had one model above it: the Brougham VIP! This particular Gloria Brougham was made more luxurious by adding a set of SSR Mk Is, a side exhaust, a big wing on the trunk and let’s not forget the tsurikawa in the rear for added passenger comfort!
