      Picked this up in Japan recently. It should be here in 6 weeks or so. I had it inspected by a friend of a friend and he and the company I used to import the car said it's very nice and extremely well built. It's an 84 and although I thought it was originally an RS turbo dr30, someone said it might actually be a standard hr30 converted to a dr30 but either way, everything was done very well and the best parts were used throughout. It looks to have a built FJ20det with a big turbo and all the bolt on goodies. It also has a Nismo LSD, coilovers, sway bars, bump steer spacers and SRS wheels. Sheet metal seams/rockers/pinch welds are all sharp and clean with no rust. The hood is obviously fiberglass or carbon as it's wavy but the rest of the body looks fantastic. The color appears to be R34 GTR Nurburgring Millenium Jade. It does have a cracked rear driver tail light but I bought a mint set which just arrived. Can't wait to post more photos when it gets here.

      I do have some plans for the car and will update soon. My favorite artist who does car renders is working on my vision for the car.

      Why do you think it isn't an original DR30? Do you have pics of the firewall? The VIN should have the chassis code as should the metal plate on the firewall.

      Someone who follows me on IG said they saw it go to auction a while back in Japan and got a look at the spec sheet. They said it was a standard HR30 converted to a DR30 when the build was done. But they also said it was a hell of a high quality build and in the end, even better than any standard RS turbo. People also keep commenting on the coil pack conversion but again, I don't know enough about these cars or the FJ20 to speak with authority.

      Wow, almost perfect apart from that overly large tail cannon, otherwise drool spec for me

      Agreed. I hate huge exhaust tips.

      Does this Skyline happen to have a retractable front spoiler?
      I know some models came with that throughout the range, but I believe that they were limited to GTS-T's and GT-T's, or somthing like that.
      Kind of obscure and difficult to find concrete evidence/facts on this.

      No but my other skyline has that. It only came on the r31's and my other one that is for sale is an 87 HR31 GTS-x.

      Got my autoart signature 1/18 dr30 super silhouette. The iron mask version like my car is on the way too. I'll get a custom display case made for the 2 super silhouette's and a stock rs turbo.

      But you must have the VIN on your purchase paperwork, right? I just looked at my 15 year old Hagerty docs (wow, I can't believe it's been that long) for my DR30 and it's right there in the VIN number. My VIN was DR3003079.
