B210 SE-R – 1974 Datsun B210

June 17, 2015

If someone asked you about Japanese economy cars that are inexpensive and popular for modifications, what would you name? The Civic, Celica, or 510? Well, you’re mistaken, old chum, because you can add another Datsun to that list – the B210. Wait, what? The Japanese car with the awkward design, gutless engine, and best known for its odd Honey Bee edition? Well, at the root of it all is a light car with rear wheel drive and a modifiable engine, so how bad could it be? Find out by checking out this 1974 Datsun B210 for sale for $3000 in La Center, WA.

Triple Threat – 1975 Datsun B210 Trio

October 25, 2013

It’s always funny when a car you think is nearly extinct shows up in multiple listings (although – when’s the last time you saw a Honeybee version?). Succeeding the B110 Sunny, or Datsun 1200 as it was known in North America, the B210 was a rebodied B110 platform with a 1.4-liter A14 engine, sold for $2849. That sounds cheap now, but on an inflation adjusted basis, it’s over $12,000 – think of what you can pick up for $12K now. It may not be the best car in the world, but it probably has cloth seats, a stereo with at least 4 speakers, and air-conditioning, never mind all the new safety features. But who wants all that crap weighing your car down? The B210 weighed in around 2000 lbs., and for some reason they have an exceptionally high survival rate in the Los Angeles area. Our first 1975 Datsun B210 hatchback is available for sale for $3000, straight outta Compton (sorry).
