1982 Datsun 720 4x4

Postby 92TXTrooper » Sun Sep 18, 2016 6:04 pm

I just wanted to share my Datsun with Yall!

It's a z22 with 4speed MT
Knock off weber carb. (Bought it that way.)

Og 15s with 30x9.5 maxxis bighorns

It needs a lot of suspension & drivetrain work.
But it runs and drives really well.

Haven't seen one of those. Where are you located? I don't see rust so it can't be the NE.

Had one of those several years ago. It was a good little truck, but I didn't know enough about it at the time to keep it running like it needed to be, so I sold it. Wish I had it back now. Looked very similar to this one, too, except I didn't have a rear rack like that, just a roll bar (which was cool, though). Blue interior, and I remember there being two spark plugs for each cylinder. Is your engine like that?

Yup 8 spark plugs, I am in Austin Texas. its IFS, Some parts are difficult to find. We occasionally get them in the junk yards so I try and pick up what I can when they do show up...

That's pretty sweet! Like it.

There's an old Toyota 4x4 a couple of blocks from me that I've been coveting too... and a Chevy Luv... and a Pinto... and there's an M38-A1 hiding around here too. I like this new neighborhood...

There are still a lot of 720's running around in the PNW. A fair amount of decent trucks can be found up here on Craigslist.

My brother used to have a 720 4x4 King Cab, it was a pretty good runner but he had continuing issues with the driveshaft.

Here's a really cool 720 KC 4x4 with a swapped-in GM 4.3, not cheap but quite a lot of truck!

Yes the PNW is a Datsun Mecca! Pretty much the whole west coast is littered with them!

I picked up this truck for about 800 dollars & a old outboard.
