Classic Nissan (Datsun) Skyline from 1971

Posted on October 10, 2010 by David Allen

You may think that when Nissan or Datsun as it was known in 1971 decided to produce a high performance car based on its successful range of family saloon cars that this was the earliest version of the “Skyline” brand. But no you would need to go back as far as 1957 to glimpse the first models that carried the badge with pride.

Check out this classic Datsun Skyline, first produced in 1968 this is the 1971 version, with its classic styling and square features, the car offers a taste of performance driving on a budget during those traumatic times in the 70’s. The Skyline was given the GT-X emblem, but later this would become the GT-R a name that still exists today and is a very desirable machine.

From the images it is clear to see that the car has been brought up to a high standard, in a way the rear quarters appear to have the styling seen on the BMW 6 series, which was another desirable car from the same period. Yet this Nissan or Datsun offers the import builder a chance to get their hands on a piece of motor history, if there were any of these cars to pick up in the first place, because these cars are rare.

The only downside for this particular car is the interior, clearly more time has been spent on the creating a car that looks super cool on the outside and the running gear, which of course are the two main features of any car. no doubt the interior will eventually be tidied up and then this classic Datsun Skyline will be out there showing everyone what they have missed out on.
