Mazda 1500 SS = $$$

8th Oct 2012, 19:44

I have a 69 Luce wagon with 64 miles on it. Pretty good condition. Anyone have an idea of price it may be worth? I'm in B.C. Canada. Let me know at joneswc@telus.net.

I love the Mazda 1500 SS. It's hard to find them or even see one.

I feel owners are starting to wake up and smell the $$$.

I own a 1968 Mazda 1500SS (SUA), which I drove until around 2000. The car now sits in a garage waiting for some tender care and new future adventures.

The car was my first car, and I am now on my second car, a Peugeot (now 27 years old). As you can see, I do not change cars every few years.

I loved the car and still do; the car has the original engine.

Years ago there were many parts for the car, and I have for some time been collecting some parts, waiting for the big day, which is only a dream.

I'm still interested to see how everyone's 'investment' in the SS is generating a deep groundswell of interest, thus pushing prices ever higher?

If anyone has an SS insured with Shannons, Lumleys or other for more than 10k, please stand up...

Mr Goldberg suggests he sold an SS to another young chap in Tassy for 19k, with another SS sold not long before it again to Tassy for 10k... What's going on here?

Would love to have seen Mr Goldberg's car... Anyone bought it?

There's one SS rusty forlorn on the open market today... an occasional 1800 or to seen driven by old ladies at the shops...

I'll keep looking....but meanwhile I see healthy prices for 105's, 2002's, and even 124's (AC) are making modest gains.

Cheers, Michel.

The Mazda 1500 SS is a genuine classic, ripper of a car to hold onto, and you'll be the owners of an expensive classic.

Its true value is on the rise.

I have been informed by Mazda Clubs that a Mazda 1500 SS is a true car to have in your collection. Even if you get those tire kickers.

It's a very rare car. I have never seen one on the road for years.

The people who own them, are starting to realize what they have now.

Enjoy a car that has history, class, looks, and value.

No matter what you read hear or been told. The Mazda 1500 SS is a vehicle that should not be left on main roads, car parks, shopping malls. They are rare, and parts are damn hard to find and expensive now, which means it's a collectable vintage classic.

I have just noticed on eBay that all the parts for the Mazda 1500 SS have sky rocketed. It seems owners are starting to see the true value.

10th Jan 2014, 02:40

All Mazda 1500 SS models should not be overlooked. They are a liked car that has plenty of appeal.

Once they reach 50 years old, say in 2018, look out buyers, they will be worth a mint.

Have inherited a 1968 Mazda 1500 Deluxe Wagon. Does anyone know of anywhere in NZ where I can find the original SOHC for it, as it has a pushrod motor put in it?

5th Apr 2014, 01:56

Try Japwreckers in Melbourne Australia.

10th Apr 2014, 22:53

Hi all,

I have a 1500 SS sedan that I'm wrecking...

Lots of good usable parts still available.

Email me at mazrota@gmail.com if any parts needed.

Hi all,

I am working on a 1500SS to put back on the road and am after a new windscreen rubber. Does anyone know where I can get one?

Cheers Robert

Hello, I cannot find the value of a Mazda 1500 SS. How much is the tops on insurance for such a rare car?

Does anyone have one, and what's the agreed value on such a classic?


24th Jan 2015, 22:26

The sky is the limit on any un-restored Mazda 1500 SS Luce.

Had a nice Mazda 1500 SS in Rhodesia or Zimbabwe as it is now. Dark tinted windows seemed to be standard on the versions that were sold there.

There might still be a few knocking around.

1st Jun 2015, 21:25

For a standard 1500...

COND 1, $9,950, it's in the June 2015 Vintage Cars Magazine.

Mazda 1500 SS... Car Point has an SS for sale, $25,000, immaculate condition.

Hope this helps.

14th Aug 2015, 05:56

I must add my comments here. The Mazda 1500 SS is value now. Please don't think otherwise.

28th Feb 2016, 01:34

Mazda 1500 SS Luce.

Just as nice to drive as all the RX models.

Okay the car hasn't got much brute, but hey what a car to be rolling out in the future.

I must say, it's not an RX2, RX3 or RX4.

But please understand that this car has been overlooked.


2nd Mar 2016, 05:10

Let's wait and and see in 4 years time when the year is 2020. This model will turn 50 years old and become vintage so to speak.

With all the history behind it, including the legend who designed it, Italian blooded with the Japanese badge of Mazda.

I can honestly say with confidence, for what this Mazda SS model had to offer back in the late 60s, wow... you will only know if you have one.

To all the Mazda 1500 SS owners in the world, look after this precious piece of classic history.

Could not have said it any better.

It seems the Mazda S is becoming what it should be...

A rare classic.

15th May 2016, 06:19

Well said mate, keep, keep, keep. If you sell you're bloody nuts.

29th May 2016, 07:01

People that come on to this review, and try to make owners of rare vehicles feel that the value is in the red book valuations, please... don't kid yourself.

The Mazda 1800 and 1500 SS models are so rare now. You show me if you see one at your local supermarket. You must smell the vintage in these great cars.

If you happen to have one, great; my advice... hold onto it.

Get real... 2/3000 thousand. That's how much the interior in one is worth.

See ya.

I owned a Mazda 1500 SS 1969 Luce from 1987 till 1998.

I sold it for 4000 dollars to a young guy in Melbourne. Would have to the best car I ever owned. I don't see them around as much as you did in the 90s.

I maybe should have kept it as they are becoming very collectable and rare now. I want to buy one again if the SS was available. There seem to be none for sale.

I did see a Mazda SS, white, all original in Tasmania in 2011, for sale for 7990, 2 owners.

If I can't find an SS, I might buy an 1800 Deluxe instead.

I highly recommended buying these Mazdas. They're a great classic to own for future investment.

Nice cars, the Mazda 1500 SS.

8th Sep 2016, 11:16

I bought a really nice deluxe model recently. One owner with 66,000 miles on it. Service book was filed out with owner's occupation as house wife. Always loved these cars. An SS would be nice though.

30th Sep 2016, 04:37

The SS model is the one to buy if you see them for sale.

11th Nov 2016, 07:35


I am from Sri Lanka. I have 2 SS. Please send me your car pictures. My FB is Donhiran. Please add me.
