To my knowledge, Skylines didn't get an AWD (well, RWD-until-the-
computer-thinks-you-need-front-power which isn't as good as "real"
AWD to me - no AWD under engine braking? Why bother) model until
the R32 chassis, which came out in '88 or '89 or thereabouts.
So even if it were a Skyline (which it sounds like it wasn't) it
wouldn't have been AWD, at least not factory anyway. (I recall
some AWD RX-7s from that general timeframe so who knows)
