Please remember that you're looking at a car cover. Its overall size and
SHAPE are most important. These aren't pantyhose. An early roadster is
(stock) only 1.02 inches shorter (max roof height) than a '70 (51.18" vs.
52.20"). My "generic" cover came from Costco over a year ago. It was noted
as "sports car". It fits well, a little droopy at the ends points, but it
fits. It does its job. It keeps the car dry, snow, ice, dust (or pollen,
depending on the time of the year) free.
Just my $0.02, (This email won't go in HTML, so I can't use the friggin
"cents" sign, HAHAHAHA)

Go to http://www.calcarcover.com/cover_find.aspx, select "Nissan (Datsun)"
under "Make" and you will see "Fairlady 1600 & 2000" in the "Model" list.
Odd thing, though, is that they have the "year" going from 1961 to 1967.
I'd be afraid that I'd get a low-windshield cover - which probably wouldn't
fit correctly on a high windshield '68 to '70 model.

Apologies if this has been discussed already, but does anyone know what
model # of car covers fits our roadsters? I'm looking for something
weatherproof as my car will have to be stored outside for a while. I've used
"Noah" cover on my Mustang and it works great outdoors. When I go to car
sites, the first thing they want you to do is select make/model of car, and
course there's no Datsun listed. Thanks! BTW, I looked on 311s.org for
info, but couldn't find it there. Might be a good idea to include a list of
