1970s Datsun Laurel. Value in USA?


Recommended Posts

I have a question for our USA members..




If a '73 - '77 Right hand drive Datsun Laurel 200L like this in good condition were to be in an auction in USA perhaps alongside other JDM models such as C10 / C110, how well do you think it would do? Not everyone can afford $175,000 for  C10 GT-R or whatever the last one just sold for so what do you realistically think an original unmolested Laurel 4 door sedan with no issues would sell for , and are there any other known Laurels residing in USA ? As you may know the 200L is similar in styling and shares a lot of parts with the 240K GT Skyline.


Are there any restrictions to registering imported cars in USA, if so are there year cutoffs that make it easier /harder or does it depend on what state  you are registering in?

Post something on line for buyers in the states and see what offers you get. A private sale to a collector would eliminate auction fees. Try Jay Leno. He probably has a whole office that fields questions like this and look for cars he would like.

No there is now only one coupe in England, there were two but the other was sold last year for equivalent $13,000 US requiring restoration to a buyer in the Netherlands.

There are only around six sedans, including the one I will be selling , just considering what the markets might be like in other countries since I've seen many cars fetch very good prices in USA. I have imported cars from USA that are worth more in the UK than in USA, for example pickup trucks.
