Kenmeri from Bahrain: 1974 Nissan Skyline 240K GT

The C110 Skyline was known as the Kenmeri due to the ad campaign which launched it and featured decidedly non-Japanese actors.  This started life as a right-hand drive 240K GT but is now left-hand drive and features an L28 in place of the L24.

The work on this car appears to have been done to a very high standard, as the LHD conversion looks stock.  This is a rare car; so some would prefer it bone stock; but LHD convenience (for most markets) and L28

This looks like a scaled-up US-market Datsun, but these were never sold here.  Upscaling accommodates six cylinder engines.

Here's a first glance at the iconic Skyline tail lights.  Also note that aggressive fastback style and the character lines on the sides - all very 70s Japanese (meaning US-influence, yet unique in some ways).

Front end it unlike any US Datsun.  Note 240K GT badge.

Here's another look at those awesome tail lights.  By the way, we love the hubcaps and, of course, the color.

Inside is sporty and everything appears to be in great shape.

This looks like it has a full complement of gauges.  The seller says the steering wheel is worn, but it looks good in the pics.

Fastback styling compromised the trunk quite a bit, but it still hold a spare.

L28 could be stock, as it looks the same as an L24 on the outside.  We're not sure what the induction story is here - US L-series sixes had either two SU-style carbs or fuel injection.  This appears to have a single carb.  We love the stock look, but wonder if triple Mikunis would really make it sing.

Its looks amazing for rear quarter original design with its slash-style fender flare and angular. The cabin is typical of higher-range Japanese cars of the era, with lots of flat, sharp-cut surfaces and black interior. the gauges cluster and its large teach and speedo-sized analog RPM, as well as the big diameter, skinny-rimmed. Note the pillarless hardtop construction, which should make for a very airy cabin with all four windows rolled down.

The vehicle look like great and run good, Paint appears in good shape all over its repaint in original gorgeous color, however a few small dings here and there, color (Golden light brown classic) exterior, and (black) for interior.

I would guess it is the finest example currently available anywhere. Overall the car presents very nicely
