All About Those Lights, No Trouble: 1988 Nissan Pulsar NX

The Nissan Pulsar NX was this oddball mutant from the 80s that could be configured as a coupe, hatchback/wagon or open top...and that was all in the same vehicle.  The only thing constant about the Pulsar is its radical tailights and the fact that you don't see them on the road anymore.  Shame. I miss those lights. Find this 1988 Nissan Pulsar NX offered for $7500 in the Santa Ynez Valley, CA via craigslist.

From the seller:

condition: excellent
make / manufacturer: Nissan
model name / number: Pulsar
Beautifully restored iconic 80's Nissan Pulsar (EXA)

109664 total miles at the time of this posting (we drive it for fun on weekends so that will increase slightly)

Less than 1000 miles on rebuilt engine

T-tops and optional SportBak rear hatch are included

5-speed manual, 1.8L normally aspirated 4 cylinder engine

Looking forward to selling to a serious collector or Nissan enthusiast only. Inquiries asking "still available?" or lowball offers will be ignored. Please be able to put a sentence together if you would like to receive a reply. 

 See a better way to drive something rad?


  1. I've always wondered how you got both tops home when you bought one of these.

    1. You probably have to borrow your friend's Honda.

  2. Strange looking Highback seats....Use to see a few of these back in the day not very often with wagon lid but a few

  3. I'm not sure I have seen such a clean example of a 1988 Pulsar since 1989. Given how rare these were, maybe not even then. Too bad it doesn't have the Sportbak too.

    1. It does
