Base mode G35 - Didn't know they came stripped down this much

I was looking for a donor G35 car to move my 2004 G35x parts over to. I ran across a base model with cloth interior, manual seats, and was also missing the steering wheel controls for the radio. I didn't know they made a stripped down G35 like this. I have looked at A LOT of G's for the last year and never seen one. Just thought it was interesting...

04 G35 Sedan Base
Wow, thatís basic. Probably only the second one Iíve seen with cloth seats. I think the 2003 base came even more stripped.

Been searching for a 2004 sales brochure to see what a base car came with. I know I remember seeing one online, canít seem to find it.

My 2004 is just a leather car, no sunroof but it has power seats and steering wheel audio controls as part of the leather package.

I haven't seen one without a sunroof before this one. I wonder what it weighs?

Yes, to get a sunroof you had to go two packages above base, but just base or leather package cars hardly sold.

Maybe not much weight advantage (50lbs?), I would hope my car comes it at 3400 lbs or so. I might drive it over a truck scale sometime soon.

Only options on mine listed are the color matched mud guards and the trunk mat. No sunroof, no Bose, sticker price was $29,800.

That under $30k base price point was very important back then. I think the BMW 3 series surpassed the $30k base price around the same time.

Does your car have leather? I think the cloth seats as a base option disappeared for the sedan after 2004.

I think leather was standard by 2005, so you might have the base version for that year. They kept adding more equipment as standard each year of the first generation.

Not long ago I ran across some of the documentation from when I ordered my coupe. Here's a copy of what I believe was a page from the order guide that the sales consultant had given me. I know we're discussing the sedan, but you can see in '03 the base coupe without leather was a separate model. The sunroof was available as an individual option or part of the premium package.

That's pretty neat, I didn't realize the sunroof could be ordered as stand alone on the coupe (and maybe the sedan). Infiniti was mostly into packaging these options , not too many stand alone, a la carte options.

Here's another informative thread. https://g35driver.com/forums/g35-cou...ackages-2.html

Next time I see a good deal on old sales brochures on ebay, I may buy them and scan for reference.
