ONE-OF-A-KIND 1972 NISSAN SKYLINE GTX HAKOSUKA: TO DIE FOR!
If you're into JDM from the 70s, then this custom 1972 Nissan Skyline GTX Hakosuka will make you weep with joy.
These cars were never released in the States so that in itself makes it unique, considering it has been customised completely makes it sensational.
Saying that, though, this 1972 Nissan Skyline GTX Hakosuka is like a time capsule to a different era. Owner, Joel, has kept most of the original spec interior parts, such as the radio and Alpine equaliser, air conditioning switches and classic dials. He's added an aftermarket radio and large rev-counter, but the essence of the 70s is firmly rooted in this vehicle.
The noticeable modifications are the wide-body kit and crazy wide wheels wrapped in semi-slicks. Joel fabricated all the bodywork himself and had a friend do the paintwork in his back yard.
What isn't visible is what lies beneath the bonnet. The Nissan engine has been bored from the original 2.8 to 3.0-litres, runs without air-cleaners, and pushes out around 200bhp.
Larry, from Hoonigan AutoFocus, gets to hop behind the wheel for a quick spin on some windy roads. As he soon discovers, the brakes are still stock so, even though it's not that fast, it's still scary and fun to drive.
