1971 Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R Is A JDM Legend In Pristine Condition
Before it was exported to the US, the GT-R was recommissioned. It remains mostly original, and the SSR alloys are one of the few telltale differences between this one and the original car that rolled off the production line.
The car is powered by a 2.0-liter six-cylinder engine with three Mikuni Kogyo Solex carburetors. It was originally said to produce 160 horsepower at 7,000 rpm and, having covered under 37,000 miles, the engine should still be in good nick. The inline-six is paired with a five-speed manual gearbox operated by a tall, slim shifter. Brakes are discs in the front and drums at the back, and there is a rear trailing-arm suspension with coil springs.
Listed by Gooding & Company, this remarkable car is one of just 1,115 H/T variants to be produced and is expected to sell for between $225,000 and $275,000 without reserve. Over 50 years from now, we wouldn’t be even slightly surprised to see well-preserved examples of the R35 selling for big bucks just like this 2000GT-R – provided there are still gas pumps around to keep them going.
