Car Spotting Adventures: 1966 Datsun Truck Double-cab Pickup - U520

April 16, 2017

Two-door, double-cab pickups (utes) of the 60's/70's are one of my favourite body styles in Japan's Kyusha world. Styling is always on-point.

The 520 Series Truck was built from May 1965 to 1969. This Truck pickup was built in 1966. 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>
