They keep popping up online - this poor old 180B wreck was advertised on FB marketplace in January 2023, asking $5,000. Unsurprisingly, it was snapped up very quickly! Looks to be a very original car, but would need at least $15,000 ploughed into it to get it looking the part and to deal with all that rust. It is certainly worth saving despite the rust - these 180Bs are ultra-rare Japanese coupes now, and $$ have jumped for good examples.
The seller at the time noted the following comments: Datsun 180b SSS all original with matching number engine. Car has not been restored and has been in dry storage for over 15 years and was used as a daily driver before I decided to restore it but never got there. I cut all the visible rust out and fish oiled it and parked it up also has dog leg gearbox"
