Continued from; “Skyline History, Part 2.“
In the early 60′s, the Skyline was to take another path. Autumn of 1960 the Italian designer Giovanni Michelotti was asked by Prince, to design for them a Coupe for the Skyline range. The result was the BLRA-3 Prince Skyline Sport. This car became commercially available to the public in April of 1962. It was available in both Hardtop (R21A) and Convertible (R21B) forms.
The Sport ran the same GB4 engine and using the chassis of the BLSI-3, the wheelbase was identical to all previous models of Skyline but the shell was wider, longer, though obviously a sight shorter than it’s predecessors.
