It's a Sports 1600. The Fairlady name was used only in Japan.

~ while true that for later models the roadsters were sold as "Fairlady" models in Japan, and by use of their displacement as a model name in the U.S. ("Sports 1500", "Sports 1600", "Sports 2000")... for 1959-61 (SPL211, SPL212, and SPL213) these cars WERE sold in the U.S. badged as "Fairlady" models. this car would be a Datsun Fairlady (with a 1200cc motor, though that wasn't yet used in place of the model name).

Agree for 1960 SPL212 and 1961 SPL213 - these were both exclusively sold in US with all examples being LHD. But the first version - the 1959 S211 - was a batch of 50 sold only in Japan, all with RHD and just called Datsun 1000 Sports. The Fairlady name started with the US-bound SPL212 and was an impromptu marketing ploy taken from the hit Broadway musical.

This is a 1961 SPL213 with silver wheel paint and single colour. SPL212 had wheel paint in the non-white colour of the body split (which could be white-over-whatever or whatever-over-white)
