This Tuned 1972 Nissan Skyline C10 Wants to Be Just Like Its Big Brother

Nissan Skylines from the 1970s are few and far between, especially in good working order. Thankfully, auction site Bring A Trailer has listed one up for grabs in the form of a 1972 C10 model that’s customized and tuned to replicate a modified 2000GT GT-R.

While not the real thing, this C10 is by no means a slouch. Being small and lightweight, and fitted with a fuel-injected Rebello Racing 3.2-liter inline-six engine paired to a five-speed manual, this Skyline is sure to shift. It comes with a limited-slip differential, a roll bar, four-wheel disc brakes, an adjustable suspension, and weight-reducing components inside-and-out, which should only help the car’s speed and handling credentials.

On the outside, you’ll find a custom metallic gray paint job alongside carbon fiber fender flares, front and rear spoilers like those found on the 2000GT GT-R, a popular choice of Watanabe alloy wheels, Marchal headlamps, “GT-Kai” badging (also known as GT改, or “GT-Modified”), as well as black-finished bumpers, trim, and fender mirrors. Inside, black vinyl-trimmed Recaro seats are joined by faux-wood trims all around, while Skyline-branded mats keep the tribute theme in check.

As of writing, the 1972 Nissan Skyline coupe has a bid of $65,000 USD — which is a far cry from the cost of the real deal. Take a look at the car above, and head over to the listing before it ends at 7 p.m. EST on Bring A Trailer’s site.
