My Fairlady:

A Vintage Fairlady at Bungo Takada Classic Car Show

by Dustin Mankin


That MG Midget looking thing? Not an MG Midget at all, but actually a SR311 or SRL311 Fairlady. It's definitely 1968 or later, dude to the addition of a rearview mirror, which was required after 1968. Under the hood it should have a U20 2 Liter engine and a 5 speed manual.

Engine specs could be a little different depending on if it came with the sports package or not. Without the sports package, it was producing 135 HP, while the sports package added some tuning, a camshaft, and dual solex/mikuni carbs. In this trim, it would hum to the tune of 150hp.

This one has some nice ivory paint and some Watanabes, which I mean, come on.... shouldn't all cars from this era been sitting on a pair? They are the Welds of the Japanese classics' world.

I looked high an low for the difference between SR311 and SRL311. I asked Daniel from Wasabi Cars, and he said he wasn't for sure, but he thought maybe the L was for left hand drive models. AKA Datsun 1600 and Datsun 2000.
