For Sale: 1969 Datsun Fairlady in O'Fallon, Illinois


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is excited to offer for sale this sweet light yellow (cream) 1969 Datsun 2000 roadster. If you've ever wanted to buy a vintage club racer, this is the car for you. As it turns out, the second generation SPL311 series (the "L" stands for left hand drive) was the car that Paul Newman (yes, that guy) started his racing career in. An accomplished racer, he had a long-term relationship with Datsun (Nissan), which started with the 2000. The Fairlady, as it was known in Japan, had a strong 2.0L engine (1982cc), with twin Mikuni/Solex carbs and a special "B" model camshaft (when ordered with the competition package). This Datsun 2000 roadster has the "B" camshaft. After undergoing a body off restoration, during which the frame and body were stripped to bare metal prior to painting, the original U20 engine (iron block, aluminum OHC head) was rebuilt completely. Sporting a .030" overbore, it is equipped with JE pistons, new Nissan valves, new crankshaft and jackshaft bearings, new "B" camshaft, new water pump, timing chain, gears, and tensioners. The distributor was rebuilt, and the ignition sports a new PerTronix electronic pickup coil. The original Solex PP44 carburetors were completely rebuilt during the engine rehab as well. The servo transmission was completely rebuilt with all new synchros and bearings. The braking system received all new calipers in front, and new shoes out back. It has new shocks, front ball joints, and has recently been aligned to assure accurate tracking and minimized undue tire wear. Additional enhancements include a larger aluminum radiator, and thermostatically controlled electric cooling fans. This Datsun 2000 roadster has also been very recently serviced, with all fluids changed, so it's ready to rock for miles to come. Inside, it has been treated to new carpet, but the synthetic leather seating was in such good shape that they needed no additional attention. The manual convertible top is new, and there is a new tonneau cover for the convertible top, as well. This roadster sports aluminum wheels, which are shod with P195/70R14 Michelin Defender radials, which have plenty of tread left, and provide sure handling. Don't miss out on your chance to snag a rare 1960's sports car - especially one that helped a racing legend get started on his career, and one that other legends like Bob Sharp and John Morton raced at the time that Paul Newman was getting his start (and then some). Additional features and options on this gorgeous 1969 Datsun 2000 roadster include Aluminum Alloy Wheels, AM Radio, Manual Convertible top, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, Spare Tire and Jack, and Vinyl Interior.
