Hi:
I bought this car from friend of mine. It is 1977 Skyline C110 equipped with 2.8L triple weber and 5spd transmission. This is my first classic skyline and should not be the last. The car has sport suspension, racing camshaft, header and exhaust system. it was not drivable in when I bought it . here are few things I did to make it run:

-Fuel tank found dirty and corroded. Replaced with used and clean one.
-most Rubber fuel lines found cracked. Replaced with new one
-Air intake filters were dirty. Replaced with K&N filters.
-Brakes worn-out. Replaced.
-crack in the radiator. Repaired.
-clutch worn-out. Replaced with new one.
-Electrical issues. Resolved.
-Bad Alternator. Replaced with bigger one.
-corroded exhaust system. Installed used Trust exhaust system.
-BBS rims. Replaced with Watanabe wheels.
-Installed oil cooler and relocate filter adapter.


The car is fantastic, solid and runs great. I’m really enjoying it. I'm not similar to those people who destroying and burning out classic cars. I'm a resto guy. i have also 1971 240Z which will be introduced separately.



Upcoming things:
-Replacing the rear taillight panel.
-installing front GTR-emblem.
-OS single plate clutch.
-Kemeari front sway bar.
- Lowering the car more.
-replace the cracked dashboard cover.
-Install R200 Differential.
-other small things.


I hope you will like it !!

Looks very nice. More inspiration for my own build. Are you in UAE? IF so, I am sure your cars are absolutely rust free?

Arguably the prettiest body line, the Kenmeri's, at least in my opinion. Any reason for that front lip to be warped in the center?

Engine bay looks pretty tidy. Your washer bottle is in an odd position though?

thanks bro. if you are talking about the plastic bottle, it is a overflow coolant bottle. agree, it is in an odd postion, I already changed to close positon to the radiator.

good observation though.

thanks

How easy is it to find these older Skylines in UAE, my friend has just moved to Abu Dhabi for a few years so i might get him on the look out for one for me.

I know there are quite a few in Kuwait as I saw 2 of them on a crazy drive from Kuwait to London across all of Europe a few years ago when i was on holiday in Austria.
