Pint Sized Part 2: ’68 Datsun Pick-up Series 520
We featured a nice Toyota SR5 yesterday thinking a run of the mill Japanese pick-up in great condition is a novelty. The we came across an even older Datsun Series 520 and couldn’t resist. This one has a remarkable 14,000 original miles and the exterior looks like that could be true. The interior however looks a little scary. The carpet or mat selection appears to be a facsimile of a sod or some other natural material. But these probably never came with carpeting to begin with, so we hope you can just toss it into the Dumpster. The ’68 Datsun 520 strongly resembles a Datsun 410/411 from the front, since it shares most sheet metal with that car. The engines produced around 67hp through a 4-speed transmission. The 520 was available as a Cab & Chassis too so customers can fit their own body. The seller is asking for $10,500 and I don’t know if the buyer will be a Japanese car collector or someone who likes a cute old truck. Click here for the eBay auction.
