The little truck, that could pull a diesel truck from spite
I work on engines, cars, etc. I never really considered working on this, until I took a closer look at it, because it had an automatic transmission, which had a lot of problems.
But when I took a closer look at it, I saw it is very easy to convert to a manual transmission; it had the mountings for the clutch pedal and the master clutch cylinder. In fact I already have put those on, and the floor plate is switchable, so I don't have to do one fabrication to covert it from automatic to manual.
These can be rust buckets, because I have two other junk Datsun 720's, and both are rusted quite bad, but only one has frame rot.
It's not the greatest looking truck, but it is simple, and from what I hear, as tough as nails.
However, the seats are uncomfortable and the cabin is pretty plain.
But these have been known to get 30+ MPG, which for a truck is nothing short of amazing.
If it's a 2wd, it has to be slammed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
