1971 Datsun 1600 Pick-up 521 2.0
Solid little truck
Wiring (alternator caught fire one day and scorched some wires).
Oil pressure gauge.
Needs a new seat.
Needs a windshield (small crack, no big deal).
Needs a radiator (been topping off the coolant for a while due to a leak).
The best vehicle I've owned; sure I've done a few things to it, but all of it was easy peasy.
I had an ongoing issue with the old carb, but once the new one went on it's been smooth running.
Not much of a highway runner, but does great in the city.
I've loaded the back of it up more than my passengers were comfortable with, but I knew she'd do just fine.
I get comments on it everywhere I go.
Great truck, one of the more reliable ones you can buy that are 46 years old.
Not sure if the mileage on mine is original, but I wouldn't be surprised if I was able to take her 100,000 miles on the current drivetrain.
An all around solid truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

That's a long list of faults for a vehicle you just bought last year, even an old one. Whoever owned it before must not have been big on maintenance.
And why would your passengers care about how much you load the back with, unless they have to ride back there too?

These were the pizza delivery vehicles of choice in the 1970s in NE Philadelphia... couldn't kill 'em :)
