Default Here for the gang...of information

New to the forum, just came into a "79" Datsun 620. It needs some work but runs and drives. Being shipped up from California to Portland soon. Look forward to all the information you guys have to help polish this project of mine.

For starters, the seller said it was a 79 but my buddy that has handled the purchase says it has front drum brakes, which we were under the impression that the 620s were upgraded to front disks in 78. Any ideas?

Look for the manufacture date in the door.

Have you done a VIN check? That may help.
Oh yeah, disregard anything XOXOScifiguy tells you.

Hey Swamp, "Live and Let Live" comes to mind. Best part of any forum is the free exchange from all kinds of folks.

Data plate on the firewall should tell all.

I don't have possession of the truck yet should be coming up from California in the next week or two.

Is the chassis number the same as the VIN number?

Wow, what a tease, you tantalize us with the promise of a 620 made 40 years ago and the only photo you send is of the data plate! Please, some pictures.
