Datsun 120Y/180B/200B/280C-300C market review from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Here is the place to find affordable and generally enjoyable Datsuns. The 120Y was derided for decades but survivors in excellent condition today make $10,000.

Coupes should be worth 30 percent more than sedans or wagons. The 180B and 200B are solid, usable ‘family classics’ with parts still available.

Excellent sedans and wagons remain below $8000 but SSS coupes are scarce and one recently sold at auction for $18,000. Six-cylinder 240, 280 and 300C models aren’t rare yet, however demand isn’t huge either and only the two-door versions are likely to sell for more than $15,000.

120Y $6085 [15] 

120Y Coupe $6665 [3] 

180B/200B $5420 [16]
