Prince Motor Company
Prince Motor Company was a Japanese automobile manufacturer from 1952 until its merger with Nissan in 1966. Prince began as the Tachikawa Aircraft Company , a producer of the famous Japanese Zero fighter planes. After the war, the company diversified into automobiles, producing an electric car, the Tama , in 1952. The company changed its name to Prince in 1955 to honor Emperor of Japan, Crown Prince Hirohito.
Prince had success building premium automobiles. Among its most famous car lines were the Skyline and Gloria, both of which were absorbed into the Nissan range after their 1966 merger. The Prince organization remained in existence inside Nissan, though the marque disappeared.
