The first-generation Gloria (BLSIP) used the same body as the Skyline. In September 1962, it received a full model change to become the type S40. The following year, the Super 6 - featuring the first domestic OHC engine - was introduced, and in 1964 at the 2nd Japan GP (T-VI Race), it secured both 1st (No. 39: H. Oishi) and 2nd (No. 38: Y. Sugita) places.
