This is Peck’s 1971 Nissan Skyline he imported from Japan into Houston. I met Peck at the Rice and Coffee meet in Houston, Texas over Super Bowl weekend – same spot we met Jacob (1985 Mark II Wagon). Peck purchased his Hakosuka from Rocky Auto a couple of years ago. He has not modified it much since it was already modded in Japan. He did replace the carburetor and a few other small upgrades and repairs. It has an L28 engine. The head has port work. Unknown block internal with an OER45 carb kit, MSD 6AL2 programmable timing, Mallory billet distributor and coil, and a reinforced frame. It was converted to power steering, has S130 front coilovers and front brake conversion and rear disc brake conversion with Kenmeri brake booster and a Wilwood 1inch brake master cylinder. Has an awesome sounding HKS Exhaust (Modified HKS R32), Recaro seats, and original Watanabe wheels wrapped in Toyo tires. Check the pics below and click HERE for the video!
It has a Works style exterior. Fender flares, front lip, etc.
The headlight covers are one of the most distinct parts of this car if you ask me.
No Rocky Auto Skyline would be complete without the Watanabe wheels. The fronts are 15×8.5 with R888 Toyo 195/50/15 tires.
The rear Watanabe’s are 15×12 wrapped in Toyo R888 245/50/15 tires.
The famous Skyline emblem.
The Plaques were in great shape – the little details are important. This is the GT改 emblem.

Good looking interior with Nismo Recaro seats.
Had some cool 90’s (I think) audio equipment in there.
The interior was in pretty good shape considering the car is almost 50 years old.
Recaro Nismo LM seats.
Nissan L28 engine with an OER 45 carb kit. The head has port work. Unknown block internal.

A closer look of the OER45 carb kit.
Wilwood 1 inch brake master cylinder. This is another upgrade he has made since he imported it from Japan.

A closer look at the the OER Racing Carb.
Cusco coilover suspension.
Nothing crazy in the trunk but figured I’d take a few shots. Here’s a shot the Mitsuba electrical fuel pump which is common commonly used in carb set ups.
Optima Battery in the trunk.
This is Peck (Pecx), make sure to give him a follow on IG. He was born in the states but lived in Thailand for a big part of his life until he moved to Houston several years ago. He has been a Japanese car enthusiast for a long time and also owns a Kenmeri among others! Thanks again for letting us shoot your awesome Skyline, Peck!
