1978 Datsun 620 KC

1978 Datsun 620 King Cab Pickup Truck. I got this truck in the beginning of November as a winter project and seasonal vehicle. Despite being lowered, rear wheel driven, and other negative all terrain features, it actually handled fantastic in the snow and it didn't get stuck once or ever have a problem. Since my ownership the truck has received a lot of love in the parts and labor category which is listed below. I wanted a truck that looked like a proper JDM ratrod that wouldn't require cosmetic attention (washing, waxing, vacuuming, etc) and wouldn't devastate me if it was damaged. The truck however would also have to be reliable and run strong enough to be a dependable daily driver. I knew I wanted one of these bulletside Datsuns starting out, but had no clue how rare they have actually become and the new buyer should research, understand, and appreciate this. Its much better then it was when I got it in November but also understand that it still requires a few little things to finish it in my opinion which are also listed below. I'll be sad to see it go because it's a great truck and receives so much positive attention wherever it goes. It turns most heads at car shows and has even had a feature article written about it for a local publication. I'm selling because I've had my share of enjoyment out of it and I've recently purchased a new daily driver.

I currently have $3,144 invested in this project and would like to see that or a similar amount come out of it. Make me a reasonable offer. It's a steal for the hours and new parts that went into this rare truck. If you see this ad the truck is still available. Serious buyers only. Don't waste my time and tell me when you see it that it needs "a paint job" or that its "rusty". What you see is what you get.
