Datsun Roadster Parts

Welcome to Sports Imports, your specialists for Datsun Roadster parts and restoration services since 1986! We have new, used, restored, refurbished, and reproduction parts for Datsuns.

We are Datsun Roadster specialists but our experience runs deep with all Datsun models like the 510, 240Z, and Datsun trucks. Browse our new and used parts, rubber, and sheet metal catalogs for any and all your Datsun restoration needs.  


The main thrust of Sports Imports is our large up-to-date inventory for the parts needed to restore, maintain, and upgrade your car. Sports Imports also runs a shop that caters almost exclusively to Datsun Roadsters – this has given me the opportunity to learn a great deal about these cars. Sports Imports was the first Datsun Roadster business to have a website up and running, which has since been replaced by our new and improved website. We are continuously working to update and improve our website to display our new and used parts inventory.

Datsun Roadster restoration is our bread and butter. We restore all types of Datsun Roadster sports convertibles from the 1964 1500 to the 1967 2000. All restorations take time, parts, and money. The average complete restoration can take as little as 800 hours or as many as 1400 hours. We take pride on doing a complete and thorough job in dismantling and reassembling each and every car.  Working with customer’s feedback and ideas enable us to make the project become a reality.

My decision to restore our family’s 1969 Datsun Roadster, which has been in my family since 1972, was a relatively quick decision in early March of 2017. A quick decision that was years in the making. My Dad and I met Ross in the mid 90’s at his previous shop since we had been planning to take the Datsun out of its 1986 parking spot when the time was right. Over the next 15 years I collected parts, knowledge (a lot from the Sports Imports early website) and courage to finally take the plunge and rescue the car in 2013 from its hiding place. At the time I was just another guy with a Datsun Project, but Ross introduced himself on the discussion group, and invited me to his shop in South Surrey, a 10 minute drive from my house. From day one it didn’t matter what the scope of my project was, Ross always had the time and the patience to help, with locating parts, or with the tricks of the trade you only get with 40 years’ experience. His advice was invaluable, encouraging me to just get it clean, running, safe, and on the road, immediately understanding the family connection to the car. “Enjoy it now”. And we did.

When the time came to undertake the full restoration of the car it ended up being a quick and easy choice. With Ross at the helm, and Dave his right hand man, we set out on the project with a goal to keep it stock, a timeline, and a “budget”.   Did it cost more than I expected? Absolutely. But let’s face it, a restoration project is not cheap, and the old adage applies: “You get what you pay for”. If it’s honesty, quality, and craftsmanship you are looking for, you will find it here. Ross was up front with the costs we could see, and forthright about the ones we couldn’t. Frankly, he was generous to a fault, clearly showing his commitment to customer satisfaction, passion for the cars, and the quality of work his shop produces. The best part was, Ross encouraged me to be as much a part of the project as I wanted, welcoming me into the shop to “help” whenever I could. Overall it was a great experience.  If I had to do it again (my wife says “NO”), I wouldn’t hesitate to pull back into the Sports Imports shop.
