Scott Scheeler launches third and final edition of The Datsun Roadster Book

By Greg Valazza, posted April 14, 2010

Scott has undertaken a huge project with this one and the results are a clear winner. The first part: The Parts Manual has parts diagrams with part numbers as expected, but is also filled with a ton of corresponding background information and other helpful tips. Part two: Technical and Service Manual is an extensive collection of extremely well written service notes and technical information, reproductions of most owner's manuals year by year, magazine article reprints, and a huge collection of full color sales brochures and ads including a section featuring some of DATSUN.ORG's collection. The last part: The Translations and Service Bulletin Manual, has translations from the Fairlady series of books published in Japan in the late eighties, some Nissan Service Bulletins, and more article reprints including some in full color.

The entire set of books is available at a bargain price of $124.88. The amount of time put into this effort was clearly a labor of love and the Datsun Roadster community is quite fortunate that Scott was able to put this collection together.

You can pick this up at Scott's easy to remember website: thedatsunroadsterbook.com or ask your favorite Datsun Roadster vendor for it when you place your next order.
