Well the R33 Autech 4 door is a "40th Anniversary Edition".

There was also a Nismo version of the Autech version lol, but both I think are the same year model.

I've searched thoroughly for about 1 hour or more. And finally come up with that.... Skylines were first produced in 1957, making the Autech R33 a 1997 model.

Hope that can help :)

Oh yea, I couldnt find out how many were made. But somewhere in posts previously, i have seen the figures 400-500 ish..

Meh, another add to the post.

First skyline was built in 1957

The first Skyline was introduced in April 1957, under the Prince marque, and was marketed as a luxury car. It featured a 1.5 L (1482 cc) GA30 engine producing 44 kW (60 hp). It used a de Dion tube rear suspension and was capable of 140 km/h (87 mph). www.wikipedia.com

I think a couple of people have missed the point of this thread....

It's meant to be a register for rare Skylines which people actually own.... not a list of different models available.

If you have any information that you'd like to add about different model Skylines and/or their specifications, please do it in this thread.

great idea :) Thread stickied!

Please only post if you have a limited edition skyline :)

I know im not in Australia, but New Zealand is close enough.

I have a 1962 Prince Skyline Deluxe model code BLSID-3 same as the one in an above post. As far as I know Australia didnt get this model or the 1963 Prince Skyline S21-4 model code either. Both part of the 1st generation Skyline. Next of Course was the S5 series (S50, S54 etc) second generation which NZ only got a limited number of S54AE and S54BE models which were badged as Prince A200 GTA or GTB.

There were 39 BLSID-3 cars sold in NZ in 1962 and are said to be the first Japanese cars sold in NZ

A while back we had someone trying to tell us that she had a "factory GTR30" which of course is a bit strange.....

she disappeared before we could get any photos, but if anyone knows of this "Julie" that may or may not have something special, please let us know....

A bit late...

No R34 sedans with RB26 conversions are plentiful. At least 3 available on used car websites every week in Japan, and more elsewhere. But in Australia... could be rare?

Would like to here of anyone else that has one. Mine has normal gtr air con but doesnt have abs, rear wiper and has the body kit. Turbos on the car are steel wheel with .64 rear housing and .60 from housing.

Does an HR31 GTS-X count in this as a rare skyline? No where near as rare as the GTS-R I know but still not a very common car in Aus.

Cool thread I own an Australian delivered R32 GTR car no1 of 100 sold by Nissan Australia the car was owned by nissan Australia for the first ten years and was sold by them to the previous owner in 2001 after a change of management. The car was first registered through Dandynong company vehicles wich is a lease fleet for nissan australia and had the number plate (vic) THE GTR. I have verified all the history of the car and also have a copy of the letter that went to all the nissan dealer princapals regarding the sale of the car in 2001 wich states that the dealership that bids the most for the car would own it and it was sold to city nissan in melbourn. The car has full books and full nissan service history and is in stock standard condition is still running a set of the origanal fitment bridgstone re71 tyres and currantly has 77000.00 klm's on it. I have been told by a friend of mine that worked for Peter Brock's race team when he raced the ford sierra that this car was driven to and from race meets by Mark Skaeif at that time but have not yet been able to verify if that is correct or not. I will post some better pics soon as the ones I have are of prety poor quality. GIANT aka Russell has seen the car inn the flesh and can verify the quality and condition of the car.
