Mazda 929/RX-4/RX-5

Sharing their shape with the very desirable RX-4 hasn’t done LA2-series 929s any harm at all. 1970s sedans that haven’t as yet been cloned to resemble RX4s cost less than $20,000 but genuine RX-4s are double that amount. RX4 Hardtops with no competition background will soon go close to matching RX3 coupe money.

If you want a rotary-engined rarity, $20-25,000 buys an RX5 hardtop or rare Landau. Later 929s haven’t fared well and $5000 typically buys a mid-1980s Limited. Or spend $10,000 on a scarce Turbo Hardtop.

One that deserves to survive if only as a tribute to its own competence is the 1990-96 Gen 5 929 but even good ones bring almost no money.

Sedan/Wagon 1973-79 $10,500 [3]
