Peculiar post, perhaps. However, as far as exposure goes, this is probably my best bet for attaining the parts I’m after without having to make mention of it on a multitude of forums and such. Having spent a fair amount of cash on parts from Japan for the C110 lately, I thought I would momentarily change focus to my other Skyline, the first generation S21 that I’m fortunate enough to own. It also needs some parts. Thankfully, Jason from the Skyline GT register in Australia has offered his assistance with finding the following parts for me. If you read this and you can help too, then by all means do so!
Rather than having to describe these parts, I’m lucky enough to own a parts manual for my model of Prince Skyline, rare enough to come across on it’s own, perhaps even more rare than the car.

I thought I had found a local source of parts by this particular car that was mentioned to me by Eddie from Ratdat.com though as you’ll find out from the subsequent post a suitable deal on the acquisition of the car would not prove that easy.

The other recent discovery was this one, which should hopefully (though somewhat sadly) be making it’s way to Australia in the no too distant future.
SO! If these cars look familiar to you, you know where one sits or you have some parts sitting aside for one of them that may well be the parts I’ve mentioned, then please get in contact with me. Thanks for your time and for reading all the way through this excessively long “Wanted” ad.
