Skyline History, Part 4.

Continued from; “Skyline History, Part 3.

So with the final facelift of the S21 doing it’s single year dash from 1962.  1963 saw the release of a new model and a new generation of Skyline.

The new face on the scene was the Prince Skyline S50;

A lot of the styling cues were taken from the previous model, despite the shape of the car being entirely different. Front and rear appearance made the car easily recognizable as the successor in the Skyline range, the now signature round rear lamps remained and the flowing trim that swooped under the rear panel (although changed for the new shape) was still a feature of the new car.
