How can a GC10 Skyline exceed its nameplate? With the different approaches on styling a ‘Hakosuka’ it is hard to decide which one looks best. It is a type of car that does not need the wildest modifications to stand out because of its cemented presence in the tuning scene. Enjoy these photos of a 1972 Skyline from Star Road.
It was my second time to get up-close with a Gc10 coupe.
This was different compared to my First GC10 chassis encounter. The first one had a different styling approach, as it went for the bosozoku-street racer look. This was immaculately resto-modded.
Wheels are Glow Star’s from Work Wheels Japan, a collaboration effort with Star Road.
The specs for the wheels are 15 x 9 +10 offset with additional 25mm spacer up front and 15x 10 -28 offset with additional 20mm spacer on the rear.
Everything is all about detail for this build, I couldn’t even spot a single hairline on the chrome parts. The car was restored in tip-top condition with a modern touch like the carbon fiber flares.
Interior was hardly touched except for the Recaro seats and Momo ‘Jet’ steering wheel.
The L28 was stroked out to 3.ol, I have no exact power output but I heard it was producing around 350-380hp.
Those lines. Makes me want a Hako more!
I spent around 15 minutes looking at the car, looking for flaws in body lines, panels – I even looked at the under-chassis. Everything is in proper shape. Star Road has done it again, check out more of their work here: The Stars of Star Road
Again… Til next time, Hako.
