1972 Skyline GT-R For Sale
Even if you had tried to score a 1972 Skyline GT-R in the era of Vietnam, bra burning, and Sanford and Son, it wouldn’t have been easy. But now, magically, in 2014, one of the earliest GT-Rs is available, and with less than 26,000 miles on it.
On the block at RM Auctions in California this weekend is this beautiful KPGC10 Skyline GT-R, and it’s expected to go for as much as $175,000. One lucky person will be getting the 2.0-liter race-derived S20 engine with dual overhead camshafts, cross-flow head with four valves per cylinder, and the hemispherical combustion chamber with dual-throat Mikuni-Solex side-draft carburetors that all add up to 160 horsepower. It’s all stock parts, aside from the Watanabe wheels and Datsun Racing steering wheel, but the new owner will also get the original items too. [Purchase]
