Developed by Prince Motor Company, Skyline (スカイライン) is an upscale full-size sedan model family (Gloria was the non-luxury fullsize sedan). Models offered have included 2-dr and 4-dr sedans, wagons and coupes. After Prince merged with Nissan in 1966 these models were badged Nissans, first with Nissan Prince Skyline badging, then later with Nissan badging although still using P emblems for some time. For detailed information, see wikipedia:Nissan Skyline
