New member I just bought my first 1974 Datsun 620

Recommended Posts

New member from Kansas. I recently bought a 1974 Datsun 620 pickup from a guy in Oklahoma. I'm extremely exited to see how this truck will end up. I've been following this forum since I picked up my truck about a month ago and finally kind of learned how to navigate the site. So I wanted to make an account and get a chance to learn and soak up some information on these things. I have pictures but not sure how to upload. I know I need a photo bucket but how do I go about doing that?

Thanks for adding me guys. Here is my truck I'll be posting more pics tomorrow under the hood and everywhere else. Let me know what you think. Any advice? Any ideas? Anything you want to know? I'm excited.

That's a pretty straight 620. Nice score. Stock wheels and caps, sweet. Grill and bumper are nice too

 

It looks like the previous owner did a paint job before sale. To bad they painted things that shouldn't be painted, hood trim, door handles, taillight housing, from what I can see.

 

Does it run and drive. Check brakes, fuel, charging. All good than drive it. That's all the advise I have until you can tell us 'the plan'

The truck actually runs very well. The engine has been rebuilt and the heads milled. No coolant leaks and the radiator holds compression. The front crankshaft seal is leaking a small bit however. Other than that no fluid leaks. It runs and shifts just fine and the clutch is new when the previous owner sent the engine off to get rebuilt.

Start your own thread. Plenty of A10s left to be had.

Hey JoeyP31

 

Looks like an awesome start...the last Datsun (daily driver) I owned was a 1974...not nearly as nice as yours tho...

 

My son lived in Topeka for several years...he has since moved to Lawrence....I love love love Kansas...hoping to end up there before my time is done here....

 

Keep up the good work...
