It is heartening when clicking on video of a recent Australian rally to see Datsun 1600s still getting spectators to their feet. Dattos in standard condition are rare and headed for $40,000 while those kitted for competition or as modified road cars can exceed $30,000.

1960s Bluebirds survive in acceptable numbers and remain affordable, however the sporty 1300SS versions are never seen. 1000 and 1200 passenger models have become quite scarce; however, 1200 utilities are everywhere with a definite cult following plus $15,000 pricing.

The angular 240K is now very scarce and exceptional Hardtops make close to $50,000.
