The Skyline not always was a monster.
How about this 1960 treat, first shown at the 1960 Turin Motor Show?
According to Nissan in two years time, some 60 were built, including a handful convertibles.

Nice car. Were they built by Michelotti or did he just design them and have them physically built by Nissan?

I think that, especially after the remark of PG1964, Carrozzeria Michelotti did not have the capacity to built 60 cars.

Exactly. That's why I asked. But it could also be possible that the body production was outsourced to another coachbuilder, like Michelotti often did with Vignale, Allemano, etc...

Prince Motor Company was an independent Japanese car maker from 1952 until its merger with Nissan in 1966.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Motor_Company

The 2 litre car was the first one in which I exceeded 120 mph, considered very fast forty two years ago. Superficialy the engine appeared to be a copy of the ubiquitous M180 Mercedes-Benz motor, but with three twin choke Weber carburettors rather than fuel injection.
