Datsun 120Y/ 180B/ 200B/ 280C-300C
Datsun filled the 1970s with a profusion of models that were more interesting than similar designs from Toyota and cheaper than those made by Mazda. The 180B added some weight but is more habitable than the 1600. Just why they and fourdoor versions of the 200B remain so cheap in the current market is perplexing. SSS Hardtop versions of the 180B and 200B can make $15,000. The 120Y suffered derision when new but lots have survived and excellent four-doors make $5000 with coupes at $6000-8000. Up the bigger end of the market 280C sedans and especially the rare hardtop have begun bringing increased money and are worth watching.
120Y $4610  120Y Coupe $5255  180B $5115  200B $4255  180/200B SSS $12,600  280/300C $10,295
