614 E. Auto Center Dr.
This 1982 Datsun 720 pickup is a very honest and correct representation of the classic nimble small truck. So if you love the culture that this represents, then you see the appeal in its high degree of originality.
This truck has the straight and clean look that tells you it has led a respected life even before you check out the low mileage odometer. The eggshell white paint is a respray later in life, and so it has the right amount of age while also adding a good gloss to the crisp body panels. The whole truck is quite complete from the hood vent trim to the tie down cleats on the side of the bed. The Datsun name on the tailgate has just the right amount of fade. It gives this the classic patina dessert survivor feeling, right down to the Mesa, AZ Datsun dealer tag still on the tailgate.
The blue interior is quite complete and original. It's far from perfect, but there's a lot of potential in a car with bucket seat bottoms and a sliding rear glass. Plus, there's also something quite cool about this truck's originality. After all, this was one of the final years before the Datsun name was replaced by Nissan. And this one has the full Datsun package imprinted everywhere from the floor mats to the center console.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 2.2-liter motor. These are the kind of powerhouses that really got the small truck market moving. They have a peppy overhead cam design that make them fun drivers, especially with the control over the five-speed manual transmission. Power steering, power brakes, and new Hankook tires are all part of a package that makes these classics fun to drive in modern times.
This is a highly original presentation of a true Datsun. The market for the classic import trucks are really starting to heat up. So if you're looking for that vintage pickup feel, or looking for a great place to start your project, this little hauler can't help but be subtly impressive. Call today!!!
