1969 Datsun 2000 Roadster restomod. It went through a body off RESTORATION about 7 years ago, tastefully modified, stored in a humidity controlled garage ever since, and always covered. Its been used only on on sunny cool days, about 300 miles a year. It's never been raced or abused. Runs great and strong. It has no top by design, and no side glass. The original tops didn't do a good job of keeping out water. They were very prone to rust. This car has no rust issues because it's never in the rain and stays in my garage.
INTERIOR: completely redone in cognac/saddlebag. The bulky heavy dash is gone, in it's place a simple functional panel of new gauges. Shaved door handles (now a very clean and functional push button ). Also has push button start, kill switch, Black carpet.
SUSPENSION: Suspension has many new/newer parts...brand new tires, ball joints, springs, bearings, bushings, newer KYB shocks, front disc brakes, etc).
ENGINE: professionally replaced with a mid 80's 2.4 liter Toyota 22r for reliability, durability, torque, and very low maintenance. Upgraded electronic ignition, Weber 38 Carb, fuel pressure regulator, K&N filter, stainless LCE header, custom exhaust w/2" pipe throughout and magnaflow muffler, electric fan, new clutch, new master cylinders, aluminum radiator, etc.
TRANSMISSION: upgraded to a 5 speed manual from a Toyota Supra. Perfectly matched gearing for the car. BODY: painted a Ford Highland racing dark green, custom pinstripes, custom dual fairings, roll bar behind headrests for safety (completely out of the way), all original lights and lenses. Undercarriage has undercoating.
OTHER INFO: upgraded headlights (German made sealed beam halogen, bright and white), gas tank and fuel lines flushed, tank professionally cleaned and sealed, brand new tires, front end aligned, custom floor mats, brand new cranking battery, and much more.
There isn't another car around like this. When you go to car shows or drive anywhere, it gets far more attention than Mustangs, Camaros, Corvettes, etc. It's a BLAST TO DRIVE, good handling, sounds incredible, and all the work has been done. It is a small car though so if you are over 6' tall, or have long legs, it will probably be too small for you to comfortable drive. Plenty of room on passenger side though.
This car needs little to nothing, although some Panasport Rims would look incredible. It is very clean inside, outside, and underneath. Think twice before buying a project car which will drain you of time and money. Spend a little more for a car that is done, where the owner spared no expense.
This is a resto-mod, done in the likes of Italian GT cars. Original restored cars sell for $20k to $35k. I have over $20,000 invested. Perfect car for fall, winter, and spring in FL. I would go about anywhere in it. Obviously not a daily driver, but great road car for fair weather cruising, weekends, car shows, car clubs, and even vintage car autocrossing (with wife, grandson/daughter, nephew/niece, etc). Includes a car cover.
I'm only thinking about selling since it's too small to fit my entire family. I might consider a trade but I'm picky. I would consider a larger classic (preferably a convertible), anything 59-71, resto-mod, or something unique. Maybe even a nice electric late model fast golf cart.
Low ballers need not inquire. If ad is up, it's still for sale. If you want to talk, email me your # and I'll call you.
