History: The Datsun Roadster, lovingly dubbed the Fairlady in its Japanese home market, was built from 1963 to 1970. Although legend has it that it was designed as a copy of the MGB, in actual fact the Datsun model was launched several months prior to the MGB and therefore, any design resemblance is happenstance. Nevertheless, the car’s main competitors were considered to be the offerings of MG, Triumph, and Fiat.
The Datsun Roadster was extremely popular with over 40,000 being built over its 11 years of production by Nissan in Hiratsuka, Kanagawa, Japan. It was, however, considerably less expensive and more reliable than some of its European peers. In 1964, many upgrades were incorporated, engendered partly by Count Albrecht Goertz, and the new SP311and SPL311 models were launched at the Tokyo Motor Show. With a new and more powerful 1,600 cc engine supplanting the 1,500 cc engine and a top speed of 106 mph, the revisions were noteworthy. In the US the new, more desirable roadster was marketed as the Datsun Sports 1600. Recently a 1968 Datsun 2000 which was restored sold at auction for 50000.00, The value of these cars keeps going up year by year.
