The Datsun 2000 Roadster had a zippy 2.0-liter engine and Japanese build quality, making it a formidable competitor on the racetrack.


The engine was a 1.6-liter OHV four-cylinder, which later got five main bearings for durability.


Datsun 2000 Roadster upgraded to 2.0L with 5-speed manual and competition package.
