Nissan Skyline - Prince Skyline (ALSID-1/ALSID-2/BLRA-3) 1957-1963

Nissan Skyline Generation#1

The Nissan Skyline (Japanese: 日産・スカイライン Nissan Sukairain) is a line of compact cars, sports cars and compact executive cars originally produced by the Prince Motor Company starting in 1955, and then by Nissan after the two companies merged in 1966. After the merger, the Skyline and its larger counterpart, the Nissan Gloria, were sold in Japan at dealership sales channels called Nissan Prince Shop.

The first Skyline was introduced in April 1957, by the Prince Motor Company, and was marketed as a luxury car. It featured a 1.5 L (1,482 cc) GA-30 engine producing 44 kW (60 hp) at 4,400 rpm. It used a de Dion tube rear suspension and was capable of 140 km/h (87 mph). The car weighed around 1,300 kg (2,900 lb). Skylines were produced as four-door sedans and five-door station wagons. Its appearance seems to be influenced by the contemporary Oldsmobile 88. Reflecting popular features found in North America, the Skyline used Dagmars on the front bumper.

The Skyline also spawned a pickup truck and a delivery van marketed as the Skyway.

The Skyline was updated with quadruple headlights for 1958, and was again facelifted in February 1960.

This model was powered by a slightly altered 1,484 cc (90.6 cu in) OHV engine known as the GA-4 of about 70 PS (51 kW) at 4,800 rpm and was produced through 1961. An 1,862 cc (113.6 cu in) engine was also available in the Skyline 1900 (BLSID-3/BLSIS-3), delivering 91 PS (67 kW) at 4,800 rpm. This version was introduced in May 1961 and continued in production until the introduction of the second generation Skyline in 1963 In 1962, this model was restyled as the S21D/S series.

BLRA-3 (R21A/B)
The Skyline Sport featured hand-built Michelotti bodies in stylish coupe (R21A) and convertible (R21B) versions. These cars used the 1.9 L (1,862 cc/113 cu in) GB-30 engine, producing 96 hp (72 kW) and 113.5 ft·lbf (154 Nm). While only a few hundred were built, Prince Motors had a very aggressive product placement group and they can be seen (along the company's mainstream models) in many Toho films of the early 1960s.
