Sweet truck. Looks better than all the 620's I have been looking at.

Thanks, I'd like to get a 620 one day too. We always heard those southwest trucks are the ones to get, no rust!

They certainly are, just be ready to replace all of the bushings and the drive-train.

A 620 is next on my list.

One of my first Datsuns was a 610 two-door. The CAR. What genius for the day. We called it the Orange Julius...well, you know why. That was the color. I wish I had live-time pics for you but it was a long time ago.

I remember jacking out the stock engine (L-18 I think) and dropping in an L-20B with a Weber carb. Took my friend Ronnie and I maybe 90 minutes to do it with the cherry picker.

Then it went like a bat out of hell for a four-banger. I believe it had better suspension than most Datsuns of the day, four-wheel something or other. I Ricky-Raced that sucker everywhere it was safe to do so. Those early Datsuns were so much fun, easy to fix, and bring back nice memories.
