Like the Toyota Crown from last week, this 1976 Datsun B210 was kept well and out of the public eye for most of its life, accruing only 33,161 miles since it rolled out of the factory. And like the Crown, it seems to have exchanged hands only a few weeks before suddenly being thrown on to eBay by a seller primarily interested in Detroit iron. Obviously, Japanese nostalgics are increasing in value, but let’s hope not all of these gems are going to be flipped for a quick buck.
Having said that, though the sunny yellow hue is original in color if not actual paint molecules, the sheen of this Sunny’s black vinyl is just as shiny as the chrome bumpers. In other words, you are not likely to find another example of this quintessential 70s economy car in better condition. At the time of this writing, the high bid of 5,100 is still not enough to make the seller part with this rare specimen.
