This Datsun Fairlady Roadster 2000 is an extremely unique collectible vehicle and very hard to come by in this condition.
What we have here is an ALL ORIGINAL Datsun Roadster 2000 with MATCHING Numbers in DRIVABLE shape. This is a perfect starting point for someone that wants a Roadster 2000 to own and restore eventually, but would like to enjoy it for a while before tearing her down. I own a Datsun restomod shop and had other plans for this Fairlady, but its really too nice to take apart and modify.
I would like to state that this car looks better in photos and from a few feet away. It is not a show car, which makes it that much more enjoyable to drive around, before putting more money into her.
I would rate the overall condition a 6.5 out of 10 (10 being a show car). She does show her age up close and will need some attention and tlc, but is a really good driver as is. As a matter of fact it's one of the NICEST running Roadster 2000's I've driven. It pulls strong and the transmission is solid!
The money these cars are fetching now is hefty. This is a GUARANTEED investment. There is no way this vehicle will depreciate, Ever! In my honest opinion, this should be selling for closer to $18-20k but it is priced for a quick sale. Hopefully she will go to a good home to someone that realizes the rarity of this car.
The Good:Solid car! One of the finest NON restored versions I've seen available for sale at a reasonable price.
Runs REALLY strong! The timing tensioner and chain were recently replaced. The carbs were recently rebuilt. It also has a new fuel pump and water pump.
As mentioned already, the Transmission feels really good as well. It goes into all the gears easily without grinding.Minimal RUST. There are a couple of rust spots to deal with (the ones listed below) but overall it is VERY rust free for a 1968 Datsun.Complete car. Most of the original parts are intact! only a couple pieces are missing that I've noticed thus far.
The Bad:Minor rusting, but not bad at all for the age. There are 2 prominent areas, both at the fender bottom areas affecting the fender and the steel behind it. As mentioned above, I do restore Datsuns, and I CAN repair this for you after you purchase and pay for the car. The repair will be $900 to repair the fender rust areas.
There are a couple of small areas on the floor board but they're small and easy to repair.
The body and paint are fair, and she has had some marginal body and paint work done in the past. As mentioned above, although its far from a show car, it makes for a car that you can enjoy without worrying about parking it everywhere you go.
