May 25, 2007I just added photos to My Gallery of My project truck. Yes, Datsun DID make fourdoor trucks, however the dually is My concept. I purchased a basic fourdoor in 2003 that had been "stranded" in Washington state by the owner who drove it up from Mexico. There were no 1500 parts available and it slipped through the cracks somehow when it was registered in Washington after the motor failed 16 years ago. As I have been "into" mini trucks since 1974 I knew that these existed, but to somehow to own one.............. well, that's another story. Fastforward to today and 34 years later this "phantom" has appeared. I debuted it last weekend at the Davis Camp show in Bullhead City,Az. It will not be seen again until bodywork and paint have been done. It's next showing will be in October in Long Beach, Ca. at the Japanese Classic Car Show. The rear fenders and rim setup were sold by California Stepside who also built the California Sunshine IMSA 620 styling kits, as well as stepside kits, aftermarket long ago. The rear bumper is off of a 1975 Chevy Vega wagon. The rest of the truck will be basically stock. All stock emblems will be retained as well as the very rare 620 stock mirrors. I am not sure right now just what headlight and grille combination will be used. As far as I know, this is the ONLY fourdoor Datsun of any model (521, 720 or Hardbody--YES, Datsun made those also!) in the United States. There were two 620 fourdoors that were shown in 1978 but they were not on their original frames. This quite possibly is the rarest Datsun pickup in the U.S. today.
