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.

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>
