1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GTX
For the uninitiated, hakosuka is Japanese slang for “Box Skyline,” to distinguish from later, curvier Skyline models. Creative, eh?
While this isn’t the sexy GT-R model–that would have the sonorous twin-cam S20 inline six, rather than this single-cam L20 six–this GTX model is still a beautiful sight on these shores. Keeping the L-series maintained might be a bit easier, as it is basically the same engine found in the Datsun 240Z.
Plus, a GT-R would likely be double the price.
We don’t love the “stanced” look–the stretched, too narrow tires on too-wide wheels, but otherwise, this is stunning.
It’s on eBay in Los Angeles for $89k or offer.
