1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R S45 up for Sale at a California Dealer

|
Now here's a car you don't get to see often -if at all- in the States. A California auto dealer has listed a first-generation 1972 Nissan Skyline GT-R S45 for $38,998. The right-hand drive (RHD) model, which is apparently a Japanese import, has clocked 81,000 miles. However, we're not entirely certain if it's an original Skyline GT-R or a clone based on the Skyline 2000GT - notice the "2000GT" badge on the center console, though we also saw the same logo appearing on a supposedly original 1970 Skyline GT-R S45 that we showed you back in June.

The Skyline 2000GT C10 featured a less powerful 2.0-liter inline-six producing 120 horsepower instead of the GT-R's same displacement engine that cranked out 160 ponies.

Also from what we've read, the C10 Skyline series was produced up until 1971 as it was replace in 1972 by the second-generation C110 series that featured a different body. But in any case, we're pretty sure that if anyone is ready to pay out nearly $40k for a classic 1970s model will and should do his homework before writing a cheque.

First of its not s45 but KPGC10, and this is no GTR but a 2000 GTX. Thats no S20 engine but a L20.

Skyline '70s still looks good , someone better buy it since all i can see behind the scene is Honda Accords Rav4s and Minivans its a collectors item!!!!!!!!

I still prefer the 240z. I don't know why.

To be honest, I'd rather have this over the new GTR. I don't think this thing is going to throw you traction control problems or weigh anywhere near as much as it's sucessor.

I agree with the last comment, less is more.

This is not a GT-R KPGC10 but a C10 and the car doesn't even have any SU carbs, what you have is a standard 2000 2dr with some expensive rims and non stock aero parts. Don't lie about it being a GT-R since you will get called out on it

GT-Rs only came with the following
(KPGC10 Body #)
(Disc brakes all around)
(Bucket seats)
(Prince logo steering wheel)RED
4.44 LSD final with clutch type limited slip
and body flares all around
most of the good quality orginial GT-R (KPGC#) cars sell for well above $100,000usd in japan

be warry of quick resto cars as they have have alot of rust painted over and not fixed !

the boys at RHD Japan do not play. this is a great car. their products are high quality and they are great guys to deal with. i sat in one when i went to visit them. it's NICE to say the least. top notch.

Yes, it is clearly a clone, but that probably makes it easier to maintain then a real s20-powered car. Anyone who wants a real GT-R would know the difference, but this appears to be reasonably priced for what it is. Easy to register in CA as it is a pre '75.

thats definitly a clone cause the mirrors in the front are definitly not that far up on a origanal one.

my name is Rick and i'm an employee at Right Hand Drive JAPAN, LTD.

you guys are correct, this is NOT a true GT-R. it WAS cloned from a 2000GT by our guys from Second Beat in Oita, Japan.

thanks for all of the comments, though!

i have a genuine KPGC GT-R if anybody is interested in buying one? If you seriously want one, you can have mine for $100,000 US. I am not joking, i seriously have a four-door Nissan Skyline GTR (and yes, it is 100% genuine)

I am not prepared to post my details, leave me you contact details and i can send you pictures of the car with a copy of the days newspaper so you know it is genuine. Thanks.
