1968 Datsun 1600 for sale. Rust free (except for a little bit on the rockers), which is a big deal with these early Japanese cars. Driving condition, but needs TLC to be a daily. Clean title.

This was a period built sports car. Has dual Sidedraft DCOE Weber carbs, header, performance exhaust, braided stainless steel brake hoses, Koni Red rear shocks, roll bar, etc. Someone put a lot of time and money Has some flares molded on and some OK alloy wheels, but I can include some 280ZX Alloys for asking price. Hard top needs some work on trip, but solid. Includes a tonneau cover in fair condition.

GREAT base for a restoration or fun autocross/street car, as these cars climb in value every year. Would be easy to do a driving restoration on this one, as it doesn't need to be taken off the road for lots of rust repair or metal work, etc. Can easily deliver or arrange shipping all along the front range, possibly anywhere.

It's a hashup, listed the vin tag on JNC as a spl. Price is $4500

Also, tags are held on with Phillips screws so it could be anything.

blabbermouth!

That's why i said frame number. It could be a 1600 with a powertrain swap, but no one usually swaps the gauges. My guess is it's a 2000 with the vin tag and title from a 1600....

This one doesn't exactly pass the sniff test. Rust free?? Hardly. Rear flares look pretty cheesy. I bet there is a lot of bondo all over.

It's a 1600 - I have spoken at length with the owner that built it in the 70s. He had about 15 Datsun roadsters at one point, so swapping parts was non-issue. This one is a 2.0 with a ported head, mild cam, etc.

The rear flares were because he was running 215r13 or wider rear tires, and came from a 240Z flare kit.

No, it's not completely rust free - there is rust in the rockers, but for a vintage Datsun, it is amazingly dry.

Hard to read, but it is the same as the VIN tag - SPL311-18873
