Taking the sandblaster to it in the morning. It is a huge mess, broken bolts and break lines. All rubber is rotten and cracked, a mass of cash will be needed.
like quite a project! thanks for saving what a lot of none datsun guys would have scrapped.
Looking forward to watching this build, what ya have planned?
Going for a complete stock truck, well as close to stock as I can get. It will be a job to get the few things I am missing. First things first is getting frame done and new rubbers installed. Never tore a truck or car this far down, so it is a learning process for both me and my son.
Love your build.
The 65 66 520 is my favorite of all the Datsun Trucks. Last of the single headlight grilles.
This is what I found for bushings for my cab to frame. These are a combination of part numbers from 620 and 720 that worked for me. Not exact fit but good enough to run.
Found the frame number today, and finished striping it down.
I had a bit of help, my second son with a wire brush and a putty knife scrapping and cleaning.
Took me alot of time to get it that far down. Going to take the blaster to the rest tomorrow after work and get some primer on it.
Need me some of that slave labor you got there :lol:
