Datsun Roadster Store
For many years now, people have sent me info about a Datsun Roadster they were trying to sell. I've finally decided to put up a page for this. In addition, I've put up some manuals, parts catalogs, and a couple models. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you want any more information and to make sure I have the item. Right now to keep this simple, I'm just shipping domestic to the United States.
1967 Datsun 1600 Roadster
We have a 1967 Datsun 1600. There was a small hole in the drivers side floor which has been patched but the rest of the body is solid. The engine was rebuilt and turns over, but there is an electrical problem and won't start. We think it is most likely the points. The top is almost new and we have a hard top. There are a lot of spare parts. It is probably not going to be a show winner, but it could be a great inexpensive driver. Other then the chrome that needs to be redone, the remaining work should not be major.
The car is located in Gainesville, Florida.
Asking $3500. Contact Lew at 352-443-9781 or by email.
1968 Datsun 2000 Roadster SOLD
This 1968 Datsun Roadster I have for sale is a very solid driver-quality example: it is a Hagerty 3-4 rating or "good" according to the books. I have owned it for the last 13 years and drove it a solid 102,516 miles. It has been driven on long drives several times without fault. Always garage kept, warm in the winter, dry in the summer. The body is straight with solid rockers. There is real patina which is desirable right now. Nothing hidden. I am the 3rd owner 1st owner had it a year the second owner was a small island mechanic and he bought if for his son upon his return from Vietnam. He had it till early 80's when he had a right qtr panel slight banger so the hood and the pane were re-painted. It is 10-15 footer visually. An ideal choice for road rallies such as the California Melee and Motherlode 400, or Shasta Datsun Show as it's a good driver that is cosmetically presentable, sound mechanically, 98% original but not currently a Concourse show car.
The car sports a clean body with two little rust bubbles on the rear panel. Some buffing spots. The car has never suffered any significant damage. The rockers and underside also appear very clean. Small crack in the dash and some cosmetic uplift needed. On the plus side, the bright work is very good throughout, the car appears to retain its original headlights, and sports period-style driving lights. The roll-bar is a nice addition as well, but could easily be removed if desired.
Has a worn vinyl top, a hardtop, and hard to find 2nd Tourneau cover.
The interior is in good, serviceable condition, the only major flaw being a crack in the dash (typical) with replaceable dashes available still today. We like this early dash design and the factory wheel, which would look great with a black leather wrap in place of the existing. The heater blower is currently by-passed but does work.
The engine fires up easily and shows strong oil pressure, delivering good power through its 5-speed manual transmission which was over-hauled in 2000 with new clutch and seals. Might need to replace front-end tie-rod arms and bushings. The car sports ok tires and the brakes have been serviced within the last five years (show good.)
New radiator in 2004. New manifold 2006. Lots and lots of loving car annually.
It would make a great choice for someone looking to get into the vintage scene in a classic sports roadster. This is not a concourse-level car by any means, but a trusty and solid runner that should provide many more happy miles.
Or it could be a solid base to grow into a real "Show Car."
The car is located in Seattle, Washington.
Offered at $9,500
1969 Datsun 1600 Roadster SOLD
This little car will be a treat to drive around this summer, and will make for a wonderful restoration project too when you're ready for that. Runs and drives great. I've had it for nearly 20 years now, have garaged it for the last 15, and have made gradual mechanical repairs including brakes, thermostat, alternator, electronic ignition, tires, and more. Front fenders both have the cancer behind the wheels but otherwise, the frame is solid and the body is in pretty good shape considering the age. Comes with a great hardtop from Custom Hardtops. The soft top is yours too but it needs some work. The car is located in Seattle, WA.

This car has undergone a complete and total rotisserie restoration and is complete and is correct in every way.

It is finished in Mercedes Smoke Silver and has:
It also includes:
- Original Ever wing fog lights
- Rare license plate trim
- Side moldings
- Matching S /U Carburetors ( By Z Therapy)
- Original wheels and hubcaps
- Plus new Panasport wheels
The car has been driven a total of 88 miles since the restoration was completed in 2008 and is absolutely perfect in every way.
This is not a one off but a complete matching numbers 2000. We have over 100 photos of the restoration and I have invested more than I care to mention.
