Description for Datsun Other 1978

I bought this truck a few months ago from the guy that made it what it is and I flat out love it...my problem is that I have too many cars that I flat out love and I need to sell some. Bellow are the details of the truck as I received it ...I changed a few things since I owned it .
Repainted the "DATSUN" on the back tailgate.Removed the Duel Carb setup and added a single sidedraft Weber....more for simplicity.Added some air filters.Replaced the seals for the Extra Cab windows.Replaced the radio Antenna ...Old one cracked..
If you like Datsun 620's ...this is the truck to own ....the modifications done have been done very well....This truck is a Blast to drive!!


Paint is mostly original, the doors re sprayed when the elephant ear tow mirrors were removed.

There is a dent in the passenger rocker panel and a scrape on the lower portion of the bed on the passenger side as well.

Other than those two items there is only typical dings for a truck of this vintage.

This truck isNOT rusty, there are small spots that are starting to bubble in the paint along the rocker and in the bed side but these are very minor and a testament to the fact that this truck is a survivor. your not going to find any surprises, the undercarriage and frame are in excellent shape and the floor pans are solid as well.

The truck has the more attractive early style grille and emblem and a sheet metal period style air dam.

Color matched bed liner.


The interior of this truck isin incredible condition, all the factory panels areintact and have been re dyedor wrapped in a quality vinyl.

The dash was removed for the installation of the cap and it fits great! installed the rare and impossibly expensive factory tachometer.

It has all new carpets and custom made floor mats.

Factory heater, defroster and air ventilation systems work.

Entire cabin from floors to rear window has been sound insulated with Hush mat. (more on that when we get to the audio portion)
