Beautifully Restored: 1968 Datsun 1300 Double-cab Pickup U520

July 18, 2015

I just love these double-cab styled cars that Japan produced in the 60's & 70's. And, I'd love to have this wonderfully restored example.

The 520 Series Truck was built from May 1965 to 1969. This Truck Pickup was built in 1968. It has a 1,299cc inline 4 engine.

How does winning stuff sound?

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
