1963 Prince Skyline sport coupe by michelotti

Second Floor - Industry

Prince was one of several Japanese automobile manufacturers to turn to Italy for assistance with styling of select car models. Never officially exported to America, the Prince Skyline Sport was designed by Giovanni Michelotti and has canted headlights akin to those on certain Chryslers, Bentleys, and Ferraris of the day. Based on the Prince firm’s Gloria chassis, the Skyline Sport is powered by an otherwise stock 1.9-liter, four-cylinder engine. Both coupe and convertible versions were built.
