TLV -53 Nissan Laurel

The Nissan Laurel was introduced by in 1968 as the new luxury model a slot above the 1968 Bluebird 510 & with the same sense of luxury found in the Nissan Cedric but with slightly reduced dimensions.

The first Laurel was developed by the Prince Motor Company, consisting of both 2-door and 4-door variants. It was released as a Nissan after Prince merged with Nissan. Laurels for years shared many components and architectures with the Skyline range.

Since 1968, eight generations of Laurel have been produced in Japan. Nissan listed the Laurel for sale in only selected Asian and European markets (it was also sold in Chile, as Datsun Laurel, in the late seventies), and then discontinued the export of this model in 1989.
