o New emergency brake boot cover

o New side mirrors (left and right)

o New convertible top boot cover

o Fixed choke knob., now works as designed.

· Fuel tank drained, removed and cleaned. Welded/reinforced to ensure tank wouldn’t sag. (2011) (common problem with this model)

· Flush clutch and brake hydraulics (2011)

· Front suspension overhaul (upper and lower ball joints, boots, etc.) (2011)

I’ve kept all documentation, receipts, etc. for repairs which I have had performed and those which were provided to me by the previous owner.

The car has an interesting history. It was the actual car in the Datsun Dream Garage Poster. Picture of the poster is shown in picture section. Also, it was featured in a commercial in the 1996 Superbowl (at about the 0:50 sec mark ) as shown in the link below:


The Roadster is a 1989 restoration by Les Cannady at Classic Datsun Motorsports. One the best names in the business. An owner in California sold it in 2001 to an owner in the Seattle area. I purchased the car in 2011.
