Datsun Roadster Information from Rallye Enterprises, Ltd.

Main Index

(Many thanks to Lou Mondello in Australia for his continuing work helping us put this information together and revising it where possible)

Differences between 67 and 67 1/2; and between 67 1/2 and 68 follow Left Hand Drive Information. Different countries specifications can vary.

Depending on the country, some 63-70 right hand drive cars have a tear drop side marker light on the front fenders, regardless of year. Emblems can be typical "Datsun" or may be "Fairlady." Front park light lenses are usually clear instead of amber, and rear turn signals are usually orange instead of red.

Later (69-70) right hand drive cars may still retain the 68 style rear bumper with attached license lamp, and separate rear turn signals. Gauges may or may not be metric, again, depending on the country. Some cars also have a "passing" light feature built into the turn signal switch. (Must be for those Solex 2 litres in Germany that need to get the Bimmers and Mercs to pull over!)

Right hand drive cars are rare in the USA, although quite a few were brought over by armed services people. c

There were many changes throughout production; so ALWAYS order with your VIN and Engine Number if applicable. No returns will be accepted if the VIN was not provided at time of order. No return of engine parts will be accepted unless Engine Number was provided at time of order. We can provide the correct parts with these numbers. Without them it is a assumptions and guesses. Thanks.
