DONíT FORGET THE PRINCE

YOUR SEPTEMBER megaspread on the GT-R was enough for this fossil to buy a car mag for the first time in yonks. Hakosuka GT-R notwithstanding, an extra page could have shown the very first Princely mischief in 1964 that spawned GT-R, albeit not yet R-rated - the Prince Skyline GT.

This was serious skunkworks stuff, taking a nondescript 1.5-litre, fourpot, four-door sedan, excising its front end at the firewall, adding a 200mm-longer nose and wheelbase with minimal overhang, inserting Prince Gloriaís SOHC inline six, uprating it to 95kW with triple Webers, better gas flow, upped compression and tuned exhaust, plus adding anti-roll bars each end and rear torque rods.
