S-chassis "easter egg" hunt

I know there is a thread on "what rare parts do you have on your car"
But this is a little different.
S13's and S14's were offered with many different options that many buyers opted out of, thus making them a coveted rarity today.
Some well known examples are the creamy yellow two-tone, and lavender frost color schemes dropped after one year, and the rare oem trunk luggage rack.

This thread is so we can discover these oem rareties and share them with others.

It can be anything from the varities of jdm two-tones, to rare models, parts, or accessories. The only requirement is that it HAS TO BE OEM.

Here are some examples, and their backgrounds:



This is the "coolbox" option for the S13 Silvia. The box inside the glovebox is ducted into the a/c system, and used to cool drinks.



Lavender frost. This color was offered in the US only in 1989. In Japan it was offered on the Silvia as a two-tone scheme, and was still offered on the SR-powered S13's

I should be getting a 1989 silvia sales brochure, so maybe more parts will present themselves, like the oem turbo timer.

WOW. I had no idea about that cool box.
Lavender frost actually looks dope. aha.
Anyway, I guess I'll contribute, but I'm sure people are sick of seeing it by now.

It's because a two-tone paint job makes the car look longer and lower, reduces the visual height of the car. Plus, because the lower portion is dark, it blends with the shadow under the car, also making it look lower.

No, its because twotones are the shit.

All that other stuff, you're just imagining things.

Mine was that color, but looked to be more beat than yours.

Carry on.

Sorry don't have pics but I hear the cup holder option is somewhat rare.
Anyone knows the factory code for that lavender color? Looks good.

LG1 according to the color chart at socal240sx.org:


edit: anyone seen a solid silver green pearl HB? According to the chart, it was available in 90, but I can't think of any I've ever seen.

my hatchback was originally that color, plus i see at least 2 of the blue/gray 2 tones in my town once a week.

plus i'm kicking myself because there was a minty/gray 2 tone for sale before i bought my 240...didn't realize at the time how rare they were..

lastly there was a creme/beige 2 tone in my local junkyard that got crushed recently (as well as 2 other nice red hatches..one of which gave up its black interior to me)

Here's my new silver-green two-tone. horrible pic I know

You are all going to hate me because I'm repainting it lavender frost. Although if everyone keeps jumping on the as yet unstarted lavender frost bandwagon, I may have to just repaint it the stock color.

But enough of this turning into a "I have a USDM two-tone" thread, let's see some other stuff.

The oem turbo timer has a switch mounted where the coin holder usually goes on the dash.

I have the Kouki S14 Silvia catalog and don't see the HUD listed.

I like the striped down K's with steelies and radio delete.

I dont know how "rare" this is, but i have yet to see another S14 with this color scheme on the seats.



Mine is an S14 Zenki. . . I dont see this color listed on the color chart either.


*** Edit, for whatever reason, the BB code was right and the pic just didnt wanna show up ***

Cash, is there suppose to be a picture or something?
I love that mint green with silver two-tone paint. There was a S13 coupe in that exact scheme in my neighborhood, just sitting for months... I finally worked up the courage to go talk to them about possibly buying it (at the time not knowing if they'd even sell it) and they said they sold it the day before... for $500... It ran, was a 5spd and its only problem that I could see was a broken drivers window. I was a very sad panda that day.

im interested in getting an oem turbo timer if anyone has one. i used to see them once in a while on ebay about 2 years ago.. i havent seen one in a year already, they went for pretty cheap too. it was pretty dope since it had a little switch for 30 sec or 1 min, with the "brain" that you tucked away into hiding.

i think my car is just plain as day.. ultra-red S14. 5 lug, vlsd, sunroof. but i was a little curious about the interior. titanium leather. i dont look at alot of pictures, but i cant remeber seeing too many of them. (i really have no idea.) it seems that 90% of S14 owners hear have cloth interiors.



cant wait to get it back from the shop and get them all cleaned up! but whatever. probably my imagination and everybody has the same. ahh well.
