Nissan Skyline C210
The succeeding C210/211 and GC210/211 of 1977 continued to split the Skyline range into basic and six-cylinder models, the latter with a longer front end.
This line continued through 1981.
The Datsun C211 240K/280K and 240C/280C variants continued for export.
A rare variant would be the wagon version, which had a unique styling treatment behind the rear doors, of a much smaller window than usual between the C and D pillars.
The GT-EX replaced the GT-R with a turbocharged engine, the L20ET.
This was the first turbo engine to power a Japanese production vehicle .
One notable aspect of the turbo versions was that they were not intercooled and there was no form of blowoff valve, only an emergency pressure release valve.
The “T” designation on the L16T and L18T does not signify a turbocharger was included; it denotes that those engines came with twin carburetors.
