Datsun Bluebird/1200/1600/240K

Early Datsuns of most kinds survive in acceptable numbers, some in plague proportions.

While it is hard to find a decent Datsun 1200 sedan or coupe, pickups are everywhere and modified versions can get beyond $15,000.

The same applies to 1600 sedans which are difficult to find in excellent untouched condition but quite common as modifieds.

An early sedan in exceptional condition will get close to $40,000. We are also starting to see a few of the pretty 510 (1600) Hardtop coupes as imports but the 1960s Bluebird SSS and 240K hardtop rarely appear.

Two-door 240Ks will likely cost more than $20,000 and are in demand for conversion to early-1970s GTR replicas.

Bluebird 1963-68 $9960 [8] 

1200 Sedan/Wagon $5575 [4]

1200 Coupe $6040 [5] 

1200 Utility $7895 [31]

1600 Sedan/Wagon $18,440 [19]
