Bring a trailer you like Car and driver is part of Hearst Autos, auctioned 141 Nissan GT-R and Skyline GT-Rbut he has never had an example from his debut model year. Which means this 1969 Nissan Skyline GT-R
To be clear, the Skyline nameplate actually preceded Nissan. Prince Motor built sedans and Skyline station wagons before Nissan acquired them in the mid-1960s. Skyline officially became Nissan in 1969, and in the same year the high-performance GT-R was introduced.
The first year Nissan Skyline GT-R was sold only as a sedan. It is estimated that only 832 examples of the Skyline GT-R generation C10 sedan were built before in 1970 the body was replaced by a coupe.
This car kept its mirrors on the wing and is equipped with 14-inch black Watanabe wheels. The body has a share of bruises, the paint has many flaws, and chrome finish with dimples. Somehow, this only enhances the appeal, as it is clear that this JDM legend is not the queen of the garage.
The C10 GT-R is equipped with a 2.0-liter 24-valve 6-valve DOHC S20 with triple carburetors with side traction Mikuni-Solex (which have been rebuilt). With a red line of 7,500 rpm, the engine at the factory was rated at 160 horsepower and 130 pound-feet of torque. It is paired with a five-speed manual transmission, and marks the week of second gear synchronization. Other mechanical features of the first-generation GT-R include front disc brakes and independent four-wheel suspension.
The interior of the right-hand drive has some modifications, such as a driver’s seat in a racing style with a fixed back, Nardi steering wheel and a partial safety frame.
The last C10 Skyline to be sold on the BaT was modified coupe of 1971 release that went in January for $ 129,000. Another 71st coupe was sold for $ 95,959 back in August. It will be interesting to see if JDM enthusiasts value this first year sedan more.
