nukeday Posted September 6, 2008 Report Share Posted September 6, 2008 Quick intro - I'm in the Willamette Valley in OR, just outside Eugene. Grew up in San Diego in the 70's and my dad has had a Datsun truck in one form or another ever since. Currently he's got several 320's (6?), 520's (at least one), and 521's at his property on the coast. His toy is an extremely nice '68. His name is Curt, perhaps some of you have had some contact with him in the search for a NOS 320 windshield... I've got one too many projects and got caught up in a major layoff here in the area. My truck ('75 V8 Chevy Luv) is on hold due to funds, inexperience and a dissassembled engine. I need a truck to haul stuff to get my household projects done before the fall weather sets in. Insert dad. The two trucks in the intro are actually not in my possession yet, but will be in the next week or so. The '70 has a title and is for sale as is, but is not a driver. My dad had some sort of deal worked out with a guy in this area to store/sell the trucks for him. My step mom put her foot down at something like 12 Datsun's on their property...lol..so these two ended up here in the valley. There were 3 actually, but the '68 sold yesterday. Did someone here buy it? The '63 has some sticky paperwork, so is not for sale at this time and will not be parted out until further notice (or maybe never). I'm pretty sure my dad legally owns it, so for now I'm just going to try to get it put back together to drive. I'll get photos up soon. I've been exposed to these trucks pretty much since I was 4, but never really got the bug. Hope to learn a few things here and maybe contribute some. It's likely that I'll try to help my dad liquidate some of the rigs on his property and possibly have the '63 for sale soon. Please don't post in this thread about needed parts, I'll get to that soon. Dad and I discussed a heavy photo session at his place. He's 60 something so most of his 'inventory' is in his head, I'll try to get a better idea of what he intends to sell when we take photos. I do know he has a lot of stuff for these early trucks. Hope to maybe meet some of you and exchange info, parts and experience. Thanks for being here ratsun.net :D Quote Link to comment
