Another 620: 1976 Datsun Pickup


This original-appearing 1976 Datsun pickup is reminiscent of the one Jeff wrote up recently and the restored Lil’ Hustler that I wrote up. This one isn’t quite as nice, but it is in pretty good shape, and the auction here on eBay has a low opening bid reflecting that it’s not perfect. The seller has won a prize with the truck at a recent show, implying it can’t look too bad up close! The little truck was with its second owner for 20 years and it spent 15 of those years in a garage, which probably explains its decent appearance. It’s located in sunny Phoenix, Arizona if you want to go take a look!

    Interesting VIN. But it’s a nice little truck. I wonder how high the reserve is?

    Fairly popular in its day. It’s nice to see one in such good shape. Even though I live in the Chinook Belt, most of these dissolved by the time they were 10 years old.

    I love these little sh#t boxes! Easy to maintain & repair, were affordable to buy and own, and ran well. The wonderful thing about Datsuns over toyotas is they are like the chevys of the import trucks.
    Datsun and Nissan stuff interchanges well for many years and models. which makes it easy to source parts or upgrade. Most everything fits. Toyotas are like Fords, gotta know what month its made and for something as simple as a throwout bearing or a slave cylinder theres 5 different possible parts. Sure wish something like this were still made new today.

    I have a friend that had one of these for years and years. Darn near bulletproof and I think he could have dropped it off a cliff and it could have been driven away after the fall.
