Description for Datsun Other 1974
This '74 Datsun 620 "L'il Hustler" Shortbedtruck is named Clementine, and she's mighty fine. It pains me to sell her, but things have changed family-wise, and Clem needs a new home. Clem stands out wherever you take her, I've lost count how many times people stop to ask about this 620.
The truck is amazing condition with about 97K original miles, (I’m still driving a bit so miles will go up slightly), and has a recent repaint by a previous owner. All brake lines and the master cylinder are new, she's got a working Datsun factory A/Coption, (this is very rare), tachometer option, new vinyl bench seat and replaced dash, newer carpet, new glass / rubber / seals, nearly new Hankook whitewalls, and new chrome OEM-style bullet mirrors from CA Datsun, Inc.
The 3-speed auto shifts smoothly and makes traffic a little easier than the more common manual transmission. Original AM/FM radio works great, as do all the exterior lights and wipers. The chrome shines almost like new. The L18 engine runs great, revs well, and is dead-simple to maintain. Recent oil and filter change.
The only things I can point out are a few spots of minor patina, a missing interior dimmer knob, the parking brake light in the dash is fussy, (guessing that's just a short, but haven't been able to verify…), and a small main seal oil leak (~2 drops after parking).
On to the Reserve and BIN price… I looked for a nice 520 / 620 or Hilux for the better part of a year, and know you can get fairly decent trucks in the $5-7K range, but not nearly this nice or complete on this one. Save yourself the time and trouble of a project, buy this one, and enjoy it!
Thanks for looking. Let me know if I can answer any questions, or assist with shipping logistics, (fees and arrangement are the responsibility of the buyer).
