1960 PLG-222

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share the newest addition to my Datsun family.  It is a 1960 PLG-222 original VIN matching motor with 70,000 original miles.  Still can't believe I came across such a rare gem in such good condition.  Does anyone know if they are having the Southwest Pick up truck show in Fontana this year?  Anyone with extra parts let me know...I don't need them just want them as spares, parts will just get harder to find as time goes by.  Thanks

I am posting a couple of pics here but

Here is the link for the whole album:http://s1141.beta.photobucket.com/user/pedromedina1/library/#/user/pedromedina1/library/Mr%20Grim%201960%20PLG-222?&_suid=136315661782109202856353903142

Yes I couldn't believe my eyes when I went to go look at it and the guy took the cover off :w00t:  :w00t: .  I am very happy I found the truck and look forward to getting him out to the shows.

Thanks I found the BBQ in the events and am following it now.  I am really going to try to make it.  It would be the first show I would take the truck to.

Absolutely sweet!  I have one that 99% complete.  The body is very clean w/ a couple minor dings.  I'm building a garage so I can get it inside before I start stripping it to the frame.  Yours is in incredible shape.  Did you get a line on any parts?  I need a couple items like wiper arms.

She brought this to the SWDP Barbeque and it looks better in person.  Really nice to meet you and your husband.  Keep up the good work on saving Datsuns.

Hey guys!

New to forum.

So I found a Unicorn! 

An all original 1 of 253 ever made DATSUN PLG 222.

No Rot!! 

One of 40-+ shipped to the west coast for test market.

Number matching and runs like a champ.

Now have it on the East Coast of the United States.  Any help with parts and info would be greatly appreciated.  Currently looking for brake and clutch master cylinders.  Tokico's are the original.  Anything compatible would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance
