I was wondering if the 1966 520 ever came in long bed option, or any of the 520's in general? Sorry if it's a dumb question, just curious ๐Ÿ™‚

I'm about 99% sure the answer is no.... I believe the first factory long bed ย was the 620...ย

With work you could put your 521 cab on a long wheelbase frame 620 (regular or king cab) but you would have to extend the front of the 521 box forward about 10 inches or build a flatbed for it. I like flatbeds... easy to fix and don't rust out. I would recommend a '78 or '79 for the disc brakes and ball joint steering

The 720 chassis are what Wayno uses for his 520/521s.ย  I put a 1980 720 chassis under my 66 520.ย  Not sure how the 620 chassis compares to the 720.

Put my 620 cab on an '82.... fit just fine.

I have not seen anyย  Datsun/Nissan issued 1966 520 brochure, service manual, parts manual, owner's manual, or technical document which identifies, illustrates or depicts a long bed.ย  (Note, a long bed would have different parts, including tailpipe, bed side panels and electrical wiring to accommodate the increased length.
