    1968 520 for sale

    That's a clean Datsun. Price is $8400 Cdn. If that was for sale when I was looking, I would have grabbed it. Now it's time to move forward, I have an offer for $2000 and he'll arrange shipping. I'll see if I can cut my losses, trying to get $2500. See more pics here. The descriptions in some images are from the mechanic. https://www.flickr.com/photos/106921229@N08/albums/72157712685583868/with/49390750811/
  2. This advert is COMPLETED!

    • FOR SALE
    • USED

    I purchased this in January, located in Saskatchewan (no salted roads there) and is currently at a garage there where it went through a full inspection. I will provide the detailed estimate I received yesterday of all work required so that you'll have no surprises. I've inquired about what the current bill is, since some work has already been completed with more work planned. The owner I purchased it from, bought it last year from the original owner where it sat for 20 plus years in his shed, There is very little to no rust which is rare...just some bumps and bruises from being a farm truck. There is no rust cancer or any major issues. It is all original (missing the mirrors) and I did locate a fuel filler door plus I have a spare wiper motor and wiper arms. These little trucks are getting popular and hard to find in this condition. 1300 cc 4 cylinder and 4 speed standard transmission. The fuel tank was removed, flushed and sealed, fuel lines blown and the truck runs great, very quiet. I have a quote for shipping which is $1500. I'll be very straight with any serious buyer and provide all the information needed to make an educated decision. I paid $1500 and just forwarded $2000 towards repairs. I've owned a few 240's and a 260z with $5000 being the price of my first 240z about 15 years ago. Prices of Z's are up over 300% on a similar Z. These Japanese mini trucks may not see the same increase, however they are very rare now, more so than the Z's. I will be taking a loss but I'm taking a different direction for a classic.

    1968 520 for sale

    I purchased this in January, located in Saskatchewan and is currently at a garage there where it went through a full inspection. The owner I purchased it from, bought it last year from the original owner where it sat for 20 plus years in his shed, It's pretty much all original, 1300 cc 4 cylinder and 4 speed standard transmission. The fuel tank was removed, flushed and sealed, fuel lines blown and the truck ran for the first time in 20+ years. I paid $1500 and just spent $1400 in repairs. I've decided to take a different direction, currently looking at a '67 Mustang an hour away. Instead of spending $1500 getting it home, that'll go towards another project. $2500 and it's yours. Currently located at Exhausted Repair, Dalmeny, Saskatchewan. Link is below for more pics https://www.flickr.com/photos/106921229@N08/albums/72157712685583868/with/49390750811/
  4. OK thanks. I believe the stock rim size is 6 x 5.5 with a 3.5 center hole, 4" wide rim. What size tire /rim can I go to? What's the stock tire size? Any specific make of rim that goes well with a 520? Something like this https://www.deadclutch.com/2018/02/15/1966-datsun-520-complete-resto/
  5. For my '68 520, I'm wondering what a good option is for tires and rims? Stick with 14" or go to 15" ? I'm looking to drop the truck 2" keeping the stance level and having 7 to 8 " wide tires.
  6. That's a sweet 520 and I love the color. I bought a 68 520 but prefer the single headlamp. I just love the style of these classic trucks, head turners for sure.
  7. Found one off a parting 520
  8. I've got a picture of the truck and the shape is the bottom one.
  9. did you mean 520 rather than 529?
  10. Thanks for taking the time for this. Tough finding one for the 520
  11. Is a fuel door off a 1971 521 the same as a 1968 520?

      I see that the lowering blocks can come with a 2 degree taper. I imagine this would be the better choice to maintain the proper driveshaft angel. I'm probably just going to do a 1 to 2 inch max.

      what is the length of a 520 bumper to bumper? I found 109"

  12. Where do I order a set of 2 inch lowering blocks for my 1968 Datsun 520.

  13. Ya...too complicated...I have a photobucket account and still too much bs to simply post a pic..
  14. I bought a 1970 that was supposed to have little issues. Well $6000 later in mechanical repairs including the head rebuild by a pro...I didn't want to mess around with some important stuff. Then the body work, paint and hundreds of hours on mine. Now it is a turn key daily driver that rips real well for an L16. I've had many 240z's, one with a 3 liter stroker so yes, this little L16 rips good. It would not match an L24 or maybe even a Civic but I didn't buy it for speed. The style is so neat, so I'm looking for another. So if you are looking for a 4 door 510 that is sweet to look at, great to drive and 100% done, reliable, send me a note. cnpbaker@yahoo.ca
