1971 Skyline 2000GT Sedan (Hakosuka)

Postby mlracing » Sun Aug 16, 2015 12:02 am

So I've been looking for a hako for about 4 years now, keeping an eye on the prices and how quickly they seem to be appreciating in price as the world notices them (thanks RM Sotheby's) and with some hard saving I've been able to finally make a purchase.

The car is a 1971 2000GT with L20 engine and 5 speed. Unknown ks, bit of rust around the place (wouldn't be one without it) but overall a fairly solid start. I purchased this from Restored.jp who some may be familiar with, they make aftermarket FRP and carbon parts for old cars like that Hako. This was the owners personal car.. whether that's good or not is yet to be known but it's a nice story anyway.

As mentioned in my intro post I'd be interested to have contact with other owners of Hakos in NZ as it would be handy for parts and general networking. I'll be working on this in stages (as I'm now broke) to get this up to road legal spec..

More to come but I've already figured a couple things I need to do before it's even here !

God I love my Skylines. You sir are a VERY lucky man. There is a guy in Chch who has one of these, 4 door as well. I bought an L20 off him for the con rods, I saw it the car in person. Sadly I don't remember the guy's name, but I'm sure some one here will know's who I'm talking about as these cars are rare in NZ.

Thanks all. I understand there could be around 5 in NZ but none that I'm aware of are currently road legal or being used. Happy to be proven wrong though!
