Perfectly Off Colour: 1972 Hakosuka NIssan Skyline GT-R Hardtop

February 25, 2017

I thought in today's video we would have a simple chat about this straightforward Safari Gold GT-R. Instead, I actually learn something about this very Hakosuka and about the available paint options of the early GT-Rs.

The C10 Series Skyline was built from 1968 to 1972. This Skyline Hardtop was built in 1972. It has a 1,989cc inline 6 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
