"Designed by Michelotti. An ultra-high-class coupe based on the Gloria."
In the early 1960s, Japanese cars weren't exactly known for their daring and/or elegant exterior styling, especially when compared to their European or American counterparts. In the development of design, Japanese car makers were considered one or two notches below the rest.
One company decided to do something about this. That was Prince Motor Cars, who requested a meeting with renowned car stylist Giovanni Michelotti. Prince requested assistance in designing a sports car. Michelotti complied by designing two vehicles on a body-less Prince chassis, one was a convertible and the other a coupe. Prince was impressed with the result.
Following the release of the prototype in Japan, Prince and Nissan produced the new car and called it the Skyline Sport.
Almost all of its parts were handmade, making it an expensive vehicle at the time, with only 60 units produced. The Skyline in fact made its debut in 1957 under the Prince Motor Car banner, but when Prince merged with Nissan in 1966, most of Prince's products were sold as Nissans. The chassis was based on the Gloria and it received the Gloria's 1.9-liter engine that produced about 88 HP. Top speed was rated at about 93 mph.
In the Japanese Grand Prix at the Suzuka Circuit, the car fell short of its goal of winning the race, and encouraged Nissan to start on the Skyline GT project.
