the 1969 would be a Skyline C10, or for the GTR verion of a PGC10 or KPGC10. the 1972 Skyline is going to be a 2000GT-X and the 1981 a Skyline R30. Here is the deal with Skylines, there is a specific clause in the DMV laws stating that NO skyline will EVER be legal for importation into the US. this means any Skyline found to be imported (and people still try and sometimes make it but often fail) will be impounded and crushed. that already makes life difficult. to add to the difficulty, all 3 skylines you have described are classics and sell for outrageously large amounts of money, even for a chassis. So unless you are willing to drop over 10K just for a bare bones chassis... On the other hand there MIGHT be something you can do, they exported some of the early skylines under the datsun name. from 1972 to 1977 (78?) they had the skyline c10 as a datsun 160K, 180K and 240K. the C210 of 77 thru 81 came out as a datsun 240c, 240k, 280c and 280K. I know they were exported but I dont know if the US ever saw them brought here.... but if they were, and you want a skyline body....thats going to be the way to go unless you want to spend large amounts of cash and bring one in illegally. Good luck
