The Prince Homer was a small commercial vehicle manufactured by the now defunct Prince Motor Company. It was available as a van, double cab, or regular cab truck. The first model was known as the T64, and was sold as the Prince Homer or PMC T64. The T640 was introduced in 1966 and was sold as a Nissan due to Prince merging with Nissan. Production of the T641 ended in 1968. The T641 Homer was introduced in 1968 and the slotted grille was replaced with a new 'cat-whiskers' grille. It was rebadged as the Nissan Homer for the Japanese domestic market, and a was marketed in Europe and Australia as the Datsun Homer. While the T641 was in production, a 1.25 ton version was built, called the T642. Unlike the T641, the T642 was not available in a van version. The Homer was sold in Taiwan, originally as the Yue Loong YLN-251.

The T20 Homer was introduced in 1972 and was used as a skateboard, replacing the T641. The T20 used the same grille as the previous model, but the front signal indicators were taller. T20 production ended in 1976. The final Homer, the F20, was produced from 1976 to 1982. Production ended in 1982, when it was deleted in favour of Nissan's own new light truck, the F22 Nissan Atlas. Use of the Homer nameplate continued in Taiwan on the F22 Atlas and on the Nissan Caravan minibus ("Homer 747").
