Suka-Ban / Hako-Ban! A 1970 Hakosuka Skyline 1500 Deluxe Van (VC10)

June 09, 2016

There just aren't that many Hakosuka vans going around. In my travels I get to see numerous GT's, even real GT-R's, but it's the short-nose variants of the C10 Skyline that are the endangered species.

The C10 Series Skyline was built from 1968 to 1972. This Skyline van was built in 1970. It has a 1,483cc inline 4 engine.
