1973 Nissan Skyline H/T 2000 GT-R Kenmeri

One of the rarest birds in Nissan’s storied history is going on the auction block this August at RM Sotheby’s event in Monterey, California. It’s a 1973 Nissan Skyline H/T 2000 GT-R Kenmeri, and it’s one of only 197 ever sold.

It would be the final GT-R model Nissan manufactured for more than 15 years, and this particular car’s odometer shows less than 15,000 miles on it. Nice. It features a 2.0 -liter, 160 horsepower, S20 straight-six engine, and a truly unique upright design with that upswept C-pillar shape. Wondering about the origin of that “Kenmeri” name? It comes from the oh-so 70s ad campaign behind it, featuring “Ken & Mary,” a fictional couple roaming the countryside in their blue 2000GT-X coupe, and later, a white 2000GT sedan. Fun fact: Neither of them was even old enough to drive when they started doing the ads. So naughty. [Purchase]
