Nissan Skyline PGC10 2000GT-R 

Nissan combined its best technologies and produced “Skyline 2000GT-R” in February 1969 after merging with Prince Motors, Ltd. “GT-R” was a high performance car produced for touring car races. The know-how for prototype race car "R380" was filled in an ordinary looking sedan body*. Mounted was the 4-valve DOHC engine re-engineered from the one for R380 to suit production cars.

It made a debut and won at “JAF GP” in May 1969, 3 months after the rollout. Since then, it kept winning until it attained 52 victories before the Nissan works team withdrew in October 1972.

*The body changed to 2-door hardtop in the autumn of 1970.

The Nissan Skyline PGC10 2000GT-R was the first GT-R. It was released in February 1969 and is only available as a 4 door sedan. Its public debut was at the 1968 Tokyo Motor Show. It is claimed there was 832 produced. Unfortunately we don't have access to the production data to verify this.
