Selling my 1980 720 Longbed that was hit while parked in front of my house a couple of years back.


This motor runs very strong and the transmission shifts very smoothly through all 5 gears. Obviously a test drive isn't possible with the condition of the truck, but you are welcome to start it and listen to how she idles and revs. Since I parked it, I've started the engine once a week and let it get to operating temperature (I usually run it for about a half hour).

I'm more than happy to arrange for you to check out the truck after it's sat overnight so you can hear how it starts / runs when cold (which it does flawlessly.)


I thought about fixing it, but I've realized that at this point, the truck is probably better off as a drivetrain doner or as a project for someone else to take on.


All replaced within the last 10K miles:

Tires (Not even 5K miles on them)

Alternator (Upgraded to an internally regulated Denso unit)

Hella H4 headlights

32/36 Weber Carb

Clutch master and Slave cylinder

Complete exhaust including a brand new Catalytic Converter (though the tailpipe was damaged in the accident)


Complete front suspension rebuilt (including but not limited to):

Ball joints

Complete Tie Rods (inner and outer)


Idler arm

Rear brakes rebuilt (Not that it would matter much at this point)


Included parts of interest:

NOS Primed fender for front drivers side

Brand new shocks for all 4 corners

Full set of Poly bushings for the rear.

Canopy for Longbed

Original Datsun service manual

Additional misc parts.




The bad:


The front bench seat is rough. I meant to replace it, just never tracked one down.

Front drivers fender and bumper is damaged. (I tracked down a NOS primed fender that will be included).

Obviously the rear end damage from the accident.


I loved this truck with all my heart, and put a lot of time and money into it. It wasn't much to look at, but it drove and ran like a dream.


I've got this listed for $400 else where on the web, but for the Ratsun forum, $300 takes everything away.


It will have to be towed at this point. I can move it enough to get it positioned to tow, but that's about as much as I can do.


Clean title in hand.
