1959 Datsun Sports S211- Only Two Remain!

October 02, 2021

It's believed only 18 S211 Datsun Sports 1000 Convertibles were built with just two remaining, and is thus known as, The Rarest Datsun. Five years ago, it came to the Sepia collection, but beyond this example, it seems the only other extant S211 resides in Nissan's own heritage museum in Zama, Kanagawa Pref.

This Sports convertible was built in 1959. It has a 988cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
