Ride 1972 Nissan Skyline GTX

SSTP 121200 READ 04 Photo 2/7   |   1972 Nissan Skyline GTX, 1994 Nissan 240SX SE Vert and More - Readers’ Rides

Location Misawa-Shi, Aomori, Japan

Mods Done Original L20 inline-6; Weber DCOE 40 sidedraft carburetors; stainless steel header; MSD ignition & coils; Ultra wires; Spec Stage 5 6-puck clutch; Fidanza flywheel; ARP hardware; 15" Watanabe wheels; TEIN lowering springs; KYB struts

Why We Like It Old school Skylines are always cool, even if they aren’t GT-R models. After all, these days an unmolested Hakosuka GT-R is not an easy find (or affordable for us mere mortals).
