In 1987, nearing the end of the S12 Silvia's lifespan in Japan, Nissan announced a lineup of 3 special edition models for sale to the public. Done in a similar fashion to Toyota releasing the Black Edition Sprinter towards the end of the AE86's build life, the main objective was to boost sales before the release of the newer S13 Silvia. The forerunner of this model lineup was the Twincam Turbo Full White RS-X, which stood above the lower specced models the Full White R-X and R-X White Select.
Available in only coupe form and painted all white it differed from the standard Japanese S12 lineup which sported two-tone paint schemes. The Full White RS-X also has many subtle exterior trim differences, a black themed interior and full JBL sound system. It received the new PLASMA CA18DET power plant and was available in both manual and automatic transmissions. A Nissan press release stated their intention to build 150 Full White RS-X's, however records show that only 90 models rolled off the production line.
I purchased my Full White RS-X in November 2009 with 74,000km's on the odometer. The car had recently been imported to Australia and was in need of compliance, engineering and registration. Unfortunately it was in less that desirable shape when I bought it, with a bit of exterior damage and small amounts of rust. Luckily though the interior and engine were in great condition and the car was completely unmodified apart from a set of aftermarket wheels. This would be the perfect project car for me.
Over the last few years this car has become my restoration project, I have slowly fixed it up and gathered the necessary parts to bring it back to its former glory. I am now the first Australian registered owner of this car and as far as I know it's the only Full White RS-X in the country. I have detailed every step of my journey with this car in my extensive build thread.
