Fat Four-Door Hakosuka Skyline that is a Real Deal GT-R
May 08, 2021
Lucky me gets to regularly see first generation Nissan Skylines in and around car shows here in Japan. And, while many at first glance appear to be the legendary DOHC S20-powered GT-R, the vast majority of the time they never are, especially if they look to be heavily modified.
The C10 Series Skyline was built from 1968 to 1972. This Skyline sedan was built in 1970. It has a 1,989cc inline 6 engine.

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>
