It is illegal to purchase a Nissan Skyline in the United States. It is legal to purchase a shell of the vehicle, however, and individuals can do so through sites such as eBay Auto or through a specialized importer, such as MRE in Mesa, California.
Mechanics can install a legal Nissan chassis into an imported shell of the Skyline. Enthusiasts should consult professional legal assistance to ensure that they can register, license and insure modified vehicles in their localities.
Nissan only manufactured the Skyline for distribution in Japan, and the right-hand driver-side chassis design is not street legal in the United States. It also does not comply with U.S. emissions and crash-test standards.
