1969 DATSUN 1600 FAIRLADY SPL 311 ROADSTER for sale
To the uniformed. the Datsun roadsters (the collective nick name for all models in the U. S. They're known as the Fairlady in Japan) are just Japanese MGB copies. but that couldn't be further from the truth. In point of fact. the Datsun pre-dated the introduction of the MGB by several months. and any styling similarities are coincidental. Whereas the performance of the MGB began to slide downward post-1967. it was just the opposite for the Datsun.This particular car was professionally restored inside and out under the direction of my brother-in-law in 2005. The restoration spared no expense and the car runs and looks awesome with a shiny silver paint job. new seats. and new convertible top. The dash is in excellent original condition (see pics). Additionally. for safety. a roll bar and airplane seat belt harness system were added.
I bought the car from my brother-in-law in 2006. Since that time. the car has been garaged with very few miles added. It is in excellent running condition and appearance. and it is very fun to drive. I imagine that with a few minor upgrades (see below). that this car would be an eye catcher at antique car shows.
There are some minor imperfections I would like to point out for those who cannot see the car in person. I have tried to adequately show these in the pictures and I will describe them here. For instance. some of the chrome is showing signs of rust. (However. included with the car are some additional parts to replace some rust areas--new letters. side view mirror. and chrome rings). There is also an new speedometer that can be installed. Additionally. there are a few minor dents that are visible if you look closely enough. Where the soft top folds into the boot. it has scraped some of the black paint off of the added roll bar. Finally. the drivers side vent handle will come off if pulled too hard. While these issues are important for disclosure. these items are certainly not what you focus on when you see this car. It has been meticulously restored and well kept. and I am happy to arrange showing it in person or for a test drive if you live close to Knoxville. TN.

An user has pointed out to me that this model is a 1968. Despite the title saying 1969 and the original service/warranty booklet showing a delivery date of June 1969 to Lawton. OK. the car number 20714 matches 1968 1600 . SPL311-17001 to 24000. making it a 1968.
The user pointed out the following:Windshield frame no longer detachable. Three top latches. not two. Triangle vent windows do not open. Gauges "sunk in". outer door handles pull up. not push button like earlier cars. Mirror above windshield. not on dash as on earlier cars. Last year for license light in bumper on USA cars.
