Masao has been hard at work over the past few months putting his skills to the test on his son’s project car. The design that Tani had in mind for this GTR33 would take on a more subtle approach to body tuning than the work that Masao is typically used to being commissioned for. A look that would pull focus to the cars original body lines while still retaining a very street-able appearance. Reserved as a car to occasionally enjoy weekend drives and a general feel of car-life, the Skyline was purchased without the circuit in mind. A purpose that is reflected in the final outcome of the build.
The first, and most notable, change that was done was increasing the overall width of the car. You won’t find any riveted on over fenders, or even molded flares; the car is much too understated for that. It’s actually what you most likely won’t see that changes the appearance the most; the front and rear fenders have both been increased in width by 20mm.
