The first Skyline was powered by a 1.5 liter 4 cylinder sedan. It was powered by a GA4 1484 cc engine that put out 73 horsepower at 4800 rpm and had a top speed of 80 mph. While the Skyline name is most often associated with the Nissan brand, it actually originated as a model by The Prince Motor Company (PMC). PMC was a company that made a line of post-WWII electric cars and “trucks” marketed under the Tama brand. The Skyline was their first true car. Later on, Prince merged with Nissan and the Skyline moniker was adopted under the Datsun umbrella.
The Skyline was a grand tourer style hardtop coupe. Some of the most well known Skylines were the 5th generation (C210 series) cars. They represent the “S (sport cars)” market segment. The car was offered with various hardtop coupe body shapes between the years 1978 and 1981 and a major change called a “face lift” occurred during a model run occurred in 1980.
