Mazda 929/RX4/RX5 market review from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

It’s fair say we would be surprised if some RX-4 coupes offered early in 2020 were sold for anywhere near their inflated asking prices.

Sedans at around $50,000 are plausible, but over $90K for a coupe is excessive.

| Buyers' Guide: Mazda RX-4

929s sold in Australia from 1973-78 shared the RX-4’s shape but not too many seem to have been converted to rotarys. That said, very few of those early 929s seem to survive at all. 929s from the mid-1980s were a totally different design with various engines and are appearing in greater numbers.

Only Turbo hardtops have the legs at present to reach $10,000. The HD Series 929 with four-wheel steering is an outstanding car but complex and almost all of them are gone. The same can be said for 121 coupes from the 1970s and the RX-5 which shared its shape.

929 Sedan/Wagon 1973-78 $13,165 [3] 

929 Hardtop 1973-78 $35,000 [2]

929 Sedan 1978-84 $5075 [4] 

929 Sedan/Hardtop 1984-90 $3860 [11]

RX-4 Sedan $47,000 [4] 

RX-4 Hardtop $80,750 [4] 

121 Coupe  $8750 [2]
