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.
