To B or not to B

1969 Datsun 1600

Indeed, the Datsun Fairlady roadster (known in American as the Datsun 1500/1600/2000, depending on engine size) does closely resemble the iconic MGB (“B” for short). But the Datsun was not a copy – after all, it was revealed to the public first in 1961.

This 1600 looks quite good in photos, though the seller notes that the paintwork isn’t the best. Aftermarket seats and steering wheel have been fitted – depending on the next owner’s taste, they may need to go. But this is a handsome sports car, and looks to have great potential.

It’s on eBay in Indianapolis with reserve not yet met.
