Datsun Sports 1964-1983 market review from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Reports from overseas of huge money being paid for rare versions of the 240Z are bound to influence local asking prices.

The averages in our survey for 2.4 and 2.6-litre two-seaters have been held down by part-finished ‘projects’ however the cost of Japanese-spec Fairlady Zs has climbed above $60,000 and will move higher.

Open-top models have settled, with 1500 Fairlady and 1600 models mostly below $25,000 while the scarce 2000 Sports is typically $35-45,000. Those wanting a 1970s Datsun with sporty looks and sufficient practicality should consider the 260Z 2+2. These in excellent condition cost $25-30,000 with the newer, more powerful 280ZX at $10,000 less.
