New Mexico 620 KC


Recommended Posts

I bought this a few months ago: A 1977 620 KC. My family has history with these little trucks, my Dad had one with a small block chevy. It is a local (Clovis, NM), one owner, well serviced truck with 115,000 miles. 

I want to swap in a 5 speed and maybe a 4.11 rear end. I just want it to be a nice truck, with good gas mileage.

First post and with pics....100000 points (they really don't matter).


Welcome to the circus, as has been said around here before by someone way more clever than myself......"Ratsun is a forum for assholes and we just all happen to own Datsuns"  (more or less a quote but you get the idea).


Look out kids another New Mexico member!  We may be up to 5 or 6 of us on here now.

get rockers. I think it would be easier to spot weld it the old fashion way than to fully weld in a patch

Will the regular cab rockers work? I have not found anything KC specific as far as sheet metal goes.


Looks like a Utah or more northern state truck. Good start though!



It is defiantly more rust than most New Mexico cars. I know it is from here from service and sales records. I have been looking for one for years and I had to grab one in a bit worse shape than I usually would buy. I just love these trucks.


This 3 of my New Mexico no rust scores:

Born and raised in the Clovis area, I am up your way at least once a year in in June near Edgewood for the Cowboy Action Shooting World Finals.

I drive the hell out of it, but It needs a few things.

I will remember to duck when June rolls around.  I picked up a 210 that came out of Los Alamos and it was rusted WAY worse than that 620.  I think they just used it as a winter driver and never washed it.

Impossible, your driveway is paved :rofl:


That truck looks badass.  If you want, PM me your contact info.  Once or twice a year we do a Cars (read Datsuns) and Coffee at my place.  There is only about 5 or 6 of us but still kinda cool to get some more Datto's in the hangar.
