Nis­san Sky­line/ Pa­trol 1966-89

Unique Cars - - REVIEW -

Ex­cept for the short-lived Prince 2000GT, Aus­tralia didn’t see any high-per­for­mance Sky­lines un­til the all-wheel drive GTR ar­rived in 1989. In Ja­pan though 1970s mod­els are en­joy­ing in­creased de­mand and sales sug­gest $130-160,000 would be re­al­is­tic here for a 2000GT Hard­top. The race-spec GT-R has sold for 80 per cent above that range. DR30 Sky­line sedans and hatch­backs sold here from 1977-86 are scarce yet aren’t at all ex­pen­sive. Nor in rel­a­tive terms are H31 GTS-X coupes which were im­ported dur­ing the 1990s. A few sur­vive and have been pre­served but prices don’t re­flect their po­ten­tial as his­toric com­pe­ti­tion cars. Early Nis­san Pa­trols aren’t as yet gen­er­at­ing the same in­ter­est as Land­cruis­ers but at cur­rent prices they’re worth a punt.
