You need one: ’73 Datsun Lil Hustler Pickup
We’ve been to Idaho. Actually have great friends there. Coincidentally because of our friends, Mint is driving a sweet ’95 Subaru Legacy Wagon 5-speed for the winter. You see Idaho is one of those secret places where you find “potentially” rust-free cars. So our Subie is solid…like this very sweet Datsun pickup. There is no need for us to go about the historic significance of this offering. It is just so cute and would fill the need for the occasional pickup by any country gentle person. The Datsun is quite remarkable with just 42,000 miles on it. Much of the parts that disintegrate are original on this one. It is equipped with power brakes and a working AM Hitachi radio.So is it show worthy in addition to being put into service as a work horse? Well, in our opinion, it deserves to have the continued care that it has experienced throughout its life to date. That doesn’t mean you don’t drive it or haul a few loads to the dump. You just have to keep it garaged, and keep it clean. Please don’t give it to your 16-year-old to take to high school unless they are very mature and understand the quirky handling of a vintage pickup. We would prefer you wrap that teen in something safer but that isn’t our responsibility. The asking price is $9,950 and that is probably way too much money if you look at it as a value proposition. But hey, where are you going to find another? Take look by clicking here.
