You're looking at my 1986 Nissan 720. This is the last model year of this truck, and was a carryover model from when Nissan was Datsun. If you'd like to know more, the "Datsun Pickup" Wikipedia page is an excellent source, curated by a few folks in the community (myself included).
Here are some details about this specific truck:
Model: Deluxe 4x4, which included power steering and A/C as standard.
Engine: Z24, a 2.4L carbureted predecessor to the famous Nissan KA24 motor
Transmission: 5-Speed Manual (FS5W71B), used in almost every Nissan of that time
This is originally a California truck, and it shows. The frame is solid, as it was undercoated early on in its life. Chipping away the coating reveals fresh factory black paint on the frame. The paint is original, and the decals have worn away in some areas. I am the third owner, starting at 129,000 miles. It now has over 150,000 as of March.
I have done extensive work to this truck to increase its longevity. I have replaced the following:
-Head gasket (with head deck flattened)
-Valve cover gasket
-Rear main seal
-Clutch master cylinder
-Clutch slave cylinder
-Brake master cylinder
-Front pads and discs
-All belt tensioners
-OEM dash clock (very rare)
I dailied this truck for three years, and it served me very well. I changed the oil every 3,000 miles with Rotella 10W30, and a high quality filter. I washed it weekly to slow any serious corrosion, aside from superficial. As it stands, it would serve someone well as a run-around or a platform for restoration or off-roading. A coat of paint would turn this into an excellent vehicle to take to car shows or drive around town. It will come with extra parts including:
-Valve cover gaskets
-Full drum brake kit (drums, shoes, hardware, cylinders, etc)
-Summer and winter sets of wheels and tires (currently on winter tires)
Feel free to ask me any additional questions you might have, as well as set up a test drive. Possible trades would be for 700cc motorcycles made by Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, or Suzuki, straight up. No Harleys, please. Reasonable offers will be entertained, but do not send me an email with a price and no context; it will be ignored.
