is it true that east coast yards dont even let you in the yard for insurance reasons????
Most west coast yards say that too, and always have said it. But some let you roam around.

Ecology in Adelanto Ca. has a "gold":confused: 620 standard Cab...Still all there Body condition was "OK" Had some Custom Rims and the back window was off and in the bed still in very good condition! They just got a white '73 620 in on friday still in the holding yard waiting to be taken out to the wrecking yard....This truck looked very nice and complete and had an Old School Camper Shell(Rounded on top with tinted Bubble? windows on side:)) on it with custom rims as well. One of the workers said he would call me when it went to the yard so I could have first Dibs on it:D Realy interested in the Camper, Fender and Grill:)! I will post when truck is out in yard and give updates.

 

Pick and Pull in Victorville ca. On Gas Line Rd. had a 620 standard cab...Truck was rough and had been gone thru already:( But, It had a custom Tailgate(Licence plate frame boxed into tailgate"nicely Done" and shaved datsun lettering....) Still intact, Could be used for a very custom 620:D!

Are all the ecology's book rate for stuff? I went to one in Long Beach and they had set prices for everything...it kind of sucked. At my local yards the guys just give you a figure off the top of your head and you can at least negotiate a little with them.

Mark that would be cool:)! I think I may go back for the back window and tailgate by next weekend:D Dont realy need them but could offer them in the parts section before the truck gets crushed:(.

Matt, Dont know if Ecology prices are all Book rate, They may change per state or county? I did ask about the tailgate and I beleive the cashier said $45(Pick and Pull), Back window $24 and Camper shell $160.(Ecology).

I live in Maryland and we have a place called Crazy Rays, which is a pull it yourself yard. Other than their 3 or 4 locations the rest are not self-serve.

 

FWIW, you west coast guys don't know how good you have it. I can't find any 521 or 620 stuff in our yards.

I was at the Albany Or. Pick-A-Part today and saw an untouched, so far, '69 521. L16 engine complete. Interior is complete but not great as was the rest of the truck. Tail lights, fenders, doors and hood all looked good. The hood emblem is missing though. :D

Anyone else game? Its a good trek. My trip is dependant on the weather. Too hot and I don't think it'll be a good idea to take the 521. I'll let you know.

I hate Crazy Ray's... they don't hold a candle compared to Pick-a-Part/Pick-n-Pull/etc...

Was at U-Pull-It on Foster Road today looking for non-Datsun parts but thought I'd walk through anyway. 1978 280z; not cherry but pretty complete. No shifter so I couldn't tell if it was 4 or 5 speed. 1978 620 kingcab; missing grille, hood, driver's side fender and most interior. Has 4 speed and L-16 missing V.C. but looks like it hasn't been exposed for long. Also 1986 300zx (if anyone cares); still pretty complete. Get to work!

Ugh, I was so spoiled in eugene with the few datsuns they had in the various yards. Down here in southern oregon theres maybe a 620 if I'm lucky. Most of the other yards have crushed all the old imports.

 

I just need a 521 to show up :(
