From Rocky Auto to the US: Steve's Hakosuka Nissan Skyline Hardtop

June 27, 2015

Back in December 2013 I visited Rocky Auto in Okazaki. Lurking in amongst a sea of Fairladys & Skylines was this outrageously overfendered Hakosuka Hardtop.

The C10 Series Skyline was built from 1968 to 1972. This Skyline Hardtop was built in 1972. It has a 2,800cc inline 6 engine.
