I picked this truck up from a nice older woman who wanted to sell it to another woman. So I'm a 33 year old pickup owner and I am in love with this truck. She's beautiful and has been kept inside most of her life. I've been fixing up little issues on her including an evap code but nothing too major. I want to keep this truck forever but I need to use her as well.
So if you have any advice to give or suggestions to offer on my journey feel free.
You SHOULD be in love. You should also buy the truck flowers on its birthday. That is a really supreme example of a classic Nissan, no kidding.

What is it worth? Who knows? A LOT, probably. I won't ask what you paid for it, but last year I saw a king cab same as yours with the 4WD at a Nissan dealership. Had 35,000 original miles on it and it was just like brand spanking new.

They asked $13,500 for it. Two days later I drove to Renton (near Seattle) not to buy it, but to see it. I should have called first. It was already sold. They wouldn't tell me how much they got for it, but said it wasn't much less than what they asked. Yours is standard cab, so maybe a bit less, and it isn't 4WD, so a little less for that. But that still leaves you a lot of value. That truck could end up at a car show.

No one will ask you directly, but I'll bet EVERYONE wonders what you paid for it.

I wanted to add a suggestion. Just a small one. If your truck is still running sealed beam headlights, ditch those and get some matching housings that take a plug in halogen bulb. Then get yourself some Osram bulbs for them.

I have THESE housings from Amazon. And to anyone still running sealed beams, you won't find any housings better or cheaper than those. I plugged Osram Nightbreakers into them. The interior on these housings are real chrome on steel, not painted aluminum and the beam pattern is excellent. Almost like Euro housings. And they only cost a measly $23 bucks a PAIR. I laid a thin bit of clear silicone between the metal and the glass, even though there is some there already. Just to make sure.

The size for Nissan trucks is 6x7. (They also come in 4x6, but you need the 6x7)

I would check to make sure your evap canister charcoal hasn’t broken loose and worked its way up to the throttle body and clogged everything. That had happened to my 1996 when I bought it. Could be causing your evap codes.

This must just be the time for "time-capsule" D21s to pop up everywhere.



First, the 4WD that XoXSciFiGuy saw.


Then, the one that Rhirey bought (40K miles?!)


Lastly (so far) the 1995 King-cab XE-V6 I found- same color as Rhiley's, too.



Mine had more miles (156K), but had been owned and maintained by a Nissan dealer Master Tech its entire life, until I bought it. Mobil 1 oil from day one. It's the cleanest D21 I've seen in person, since the 1990s.



I, too, plan to keep this truck pretty much forever. My previous one (a 1989 king-cab SE-V6) had lasted for 14 years, and should have kept right on going, had a tree not fallen on it... .



But, that led to the hunt that found the 1995- which is, honestly, in much better condition than my 1989 had been in, at any time I owned it. The 1989 was a true "work truck"- it had been treated as such before I bought it- but the 1995 was cared for to the extent that it was even usually kept under a car cover, when it wasn't in use- I got the car cover when I bought it, in fact...


Regards,
Gordon.
