1978 datsun 620 king cab. all stock. L20, 5spd. (norcal)

Not yet on craigslist. I wanted to let the realm members have a crack at it at first.

2,800$. call (707) 321-8209 if seriously interested.
as stated, this truck is BONE stock. the '78 was the first year to go to the 5 speed, L20, with disk brakes.
the pictures speak for themselves, if you are a 620 enthusiast...the only option missing is factory A/C.

the thing runs well, but smokes a bit on start-up... and burns a bit of oil, as a tired L-series does. (not horrible at all) has had the carb rebuilt recently, and new radiator installed.

the truck was originally from southern california, (I drove it home from SanDiego) and has some really isolated rust patches. bed side, and bottom of doors, and front corner of the hood. (I can take more detail photos of the rust areas) most of the paint looks great (and is ALL original) the windows and gaskets are all intact, without the classic northwest rust problems (bottom of windows, under moldings)

clean title pink slip in hand and current smog.

I would jump in and drive the thing 1,000+ miles right now without question.

bought it for 3,500$ four years ago, sold it for the same price, then bought it back recently & performed more work... in the last four years: the dash crack has opened up bigger, and the carpet has started to denigrate... other than that, it's in very similar condition. (and yes, the original door panels have oxidized to a pink-ish color!)

That's a beautiful classic. If I thought it would survive being parked on the street, I'd get it.

more details of the rusty-ness (...and that's more dirt than rust in the bed)

Hey Forest, you might try posting it on: http://www.ratsun.net

There are a bunch of truck guys over there who might be interested.
