slepe67 Posted February 10, 2020 Report Share Posted February 10, 2020 Hello Ratsun Community! I've been lurking for a lonnnng time. Time to start a thread. I grew up driving a 78 620 KC, that my dad bought new, on the rough roads of rural Montana. I learned one thing: you cant kill these trucks! See a bunch if 4x4s stuck in a snow drift? Back up and hit it hard, and smile as you go over the top. Great memories in that truck until I left for the military in 1991. Sold it to a friend who scrapped it in 1994. Fast forward to 2017. I had moved back to MT and found a 77 KC in Washington and had to have it. When the shipper dropped it off, I knew I shouldve looked at the photos more carefully. The first thing I noticed: the sunroof wasnt square to the cab (cocked). Tje PO had tried to seal the sunroof with caulk. It was leaking badly. The roof had thick body filler on it and somebody had tried sanding it. it had more waves than the Pacific Ocean. I knew the engine was seized, and the truck did have a lot of new parts, so I went to the local junkyard and found two 620s that were on deaths doorstep. I pulled the engine, cowl panel, front valance, center console, 4 OEM rims, instrument panel, bucket seats (my KC had a bench in it) & a handful of Datsun clips and fasteners, all for about $300. 1 Quote Link to comment
