They were, and the Skyline has never been a Datsun. The Prince Motor Company created it in the 50's, and once they merged with Nissan in the 60's the 2000GT-R was introduced as a Nissan in '69.
You might be mistaking it for the Datsun 510, which had a pretty similar but completely un-sporty look to it.
