1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GT Hakosuka RHD JDM Import not a GTRA truly rare find! This Hakosuka Skyline 2000GT can be described as a true survivor car. It has had some paint work, but has not been cut for flares, and wears what appears to be an original rare vinyl top. The car is completely stock excluding the wheels. Even the stock radio and 8 track player are present. Radio works great, the 8-track powers up, but does not play...my test 8-tracks may have been bad too though. This car is also equipped with the dealer option AC unit, and it still blows cold and functions exactly as it should. The interior is excellent for its age. As is typical on these cars, the carpet has faded, but is still present and not torn up. The car also has original Skyline rubber mats. The drivers seat has a seam coming apart that we will have re-sewn, but otherwise the seats are in excellent shape. The dashpad unfortunately has one crack, but replacements are still available. The headliner does not sag, and all other trim panels are present and in good shape as well.
When the car arrived, it ran so well we didn't think twice about taking the car on a 60 mile roundtrip on Kentucky backroads at night. We probably should have thought a little more about that, but we didn't have any issues so it worked out fine! I've since replaced the plugs, distributor cap, rotor, and condenser, so now the car runs even smoother and happily revs up at the flick of the gas pedal. I believe the car still had the original cap, rotor, and condenser. The old parts are included with the sale. We've since also taken it for a weekend road trip to Nashville Cars and Coffee racking up over 300 miles in two days.
I believe this car has been running and driving its entire life. We have service records from the first few years of ownership, and records from the most recent owner going back a few years. Most recently the heater core and blower were replaced. The car does need suspension bushings and shock top hats, most are cracked and worn.This car is very solid, and in better condition than many I've seen. The floors, sills, and trunk of the car are in very solid shape with no rust. However there is some rust on the bottom of the passenger front fender, and some rust starting to appear around the windows as is typical for a car with a vinyl top. The engine bay has acid damge to the paint around the battery, but it has not rusted. See photos for details, but the large spots near the battery are paint discoloration and not rust. The best part of this car, is that no one has gotten their hands on it to slather the rust with bondo and give the car a â€˜GTR look' makeover as so many have had. The paint and condition is evident and honest with factory paint present in many places, unlike many of the other Hako's out there. The issues with the car at this point are small, and have just started. It could be enjoyed as is, or fixed now before the issues grow.
