1979 Datsun 180B

Where: trademe.co.nz, Auckland, New Zealand

With a few subtle and potentially cheap changes, this could be a hot little ride. We would lose the rear window spoiler, change the wheels, lose a bit of ride-height and keep the fab Japan-spec mirrors.

The bidding starts at a reasonable £3246 and the car had a repaint 3 years ago and is said to have no rust. The current owner has had it for six years and has spent ‘heaps’. 175,000km on the clock (109,000 miles).

Price: NZ$6500 (£3,246)
