Cohort Outtake: When Was the Last Time You Saw a Nissan Pulsar With the Sportback?

I’ve been looking for years, but no luck. There’s still a few of these Pulsar coupes around, but none with the optional Sportback. But JWFlynn found this one in Malden, MA. Obviously, not a lot of the Sportbacks were sold. And it wasn’t exactly an original idea by Nissan either.

Here’s the ad for “The World’s First Multiple Convertible”.

Here’s its inspiration, the 1975 Ghia-designed Prima. Ghia was then owned by Ford of course, but apparently Ford decided not to bite. Good call, apparently.
