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.
