UPGRADED 1600CC, 4SPD, RUNS AND DRIVES GR8, LOW PRODUCTN RUN, FUN & AFFORDABLE!
The Mazda Miata was not the first car to take the British roadster appeal and add in reliable Japanese components. This 1964 Datsun Sports 1500 Fairlady offers plenty of vintage style in a speedy and nimble roadster package. And when you realize that something this rare and complete is also so affordable, you'll instantly fall in love/lust with this deal.
Japanese car fans know to get excited when a Fairlady becomes available. The 1500 model was only available for a couple of years, and Datsun only officially used the Fairlady name for this series in the USA. But beyond its history, you want this roadster because it's a true class act. Red is always a desirable color, and the sheetmetal on this one looks terrific. That's why you get to appreciate all the details – from the hood scoop to the subtle tailfins. The overall presentation looks like the best of Europe, but it came from the engineering minds at Nissan/Datsun.
Just like the exterior, the interior has all the right original charm with a few subtle upgrades. For example, the bucket seats follow the factory pattern, but they've been recently recovered for a fresh appearance that now includes nicely coordinated red piping. In fact, this feels so correct, you still get transverse jump seat in the rear. But the real reason you want this is for the driving experience. You get a three-spoke steering wheel with old-style Datsun logo on the horn ring. This is fingertip close to the four-speed gearstick – just like in the tradition of your favorite British roadsters. Ahead of that is the full original gauge package that includes a large speedo and tach. Everything in the dash is so original that even the AM radio still works! And for those few times the days are gray, the factory hardtop gives this roadster a nice hardtop profile.
More of this original appearance with upgrades happens under the hood, too. The motor looks great with its correct Datsun valve cover, but it's hiding a secret. You're looking at a later and more powerful 1600cc powerplant (lovers originality will be happy to know that the original 1500 motor also comes with the sale, too.) This is the heart of the Fairlady's appeal. Datsun offered a more reliable and more powerful engine than most of its English competitors. So you have a motor that fires up easily, purrs with that perfect roadster exhaust note, gives the perfect nimble feeling, and is reliable all the way through your favorite Sunday drive.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at an opportunity to own something rare, distinctive, and quite fun. So when this total package is also so affordable, you know you need to hurry to grab this deal. Call now!
