Gateway Classic Cars of Denver is proud to offer this 1969 Datsun
1600. 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 a two door roadster similar to the MGB series. In point
of fact, the Datsun pre-dated the introduction of the MGB by
several months, and any styling similarities are just a
coincidence. Whereas the performance of the MGB began to slide
downward post-1967, it was just the opposite for the Datsun. This
is when Datsun really started taking off! Datsun roadsters are
pleasant-looking with more of a bias toward "cute" than handsome.
The small hood scoop and stacked tail lights are unique features
that really set it apart from any competition. The majority of cars
out there are the smaller displacement 1500 and 1600 models. The
2000 didn't become available until mid-1967. Where the 1600 had
around 90 hp, the 2000 had 135 hp out of the box and more could be
had with a factory tuning kit. The 2000 was a legitimate stoplight
sleeper and the mid-year 1967 version is rare and desirable with a
better looking dash and a short windshield.Datsun roadsters raced
successfully in SCCA matches and continue to be good vintage
racers. They're more durable than most of their British rivals
.This Silver exterior and black interior 1600 is truly a gem! With
less than 150 miles on the restoration and it being a 2 owner
vehicle! Do not miss out on your opportunity to own one of these
beautiful Japanese roadster.
