The Datsun Roadster is the British sports car that Britain couldn’t make.
Built right before the famed 240z, the Datsun Roadster is the Japan-built beauty that gave every British marque a run for their money. Impeccably reliable and fast, they were raced for many years in Japan throughout their entire production run (1963-1970) in the Japanese Grand Prix, where it won many times.
Only 40,000 or so were ever built. This particular example is a 1970 model, the last year of production, and what enthusiasts would call a "high windshield" model, meaning the windshield is different than cars made before 1968. Most of these cars fell victim to the rust monster, which makes a car with original paint and minimal rust like this one extremely rare, the interior has been re-upholstered with a factory correct kit, and the engine runs smoothly. Included are a number of spares including the original 14" wheels, rare "Smoothline" hard top, various brake parts and a soft top frame.
