Nissan PAO-1989

Nissan PAO-1989

The PAO was introduced to an adoring public at the 1987 Tokyo Motor Show alongside the S-Cargo. The retro styling of the hugely popular Be-1 was continued and taken even further. Car buyers ordered more than 51,000 PAO’s during the limited-to-three-months order taking period. The PAO is based on the Micra. The fenders are made of General Electric’s “flex-panel” material that can withstand minor impacts without denting. “Flex-panels” fade at
a different rate than painted steel panels, so the car has different shades of blue all over its body.  Retro styling cues are external door hinges, front vent windows, rear flip-up windows, corrugated body panels, body colored dash, and a sliding fabric roof.
