1984 Nissan 720 Pickup DX 2.4 from North America


It'll always be my first car...



Main fusible link.




General Comments:

This was my first car, had it through high school and just sold it as of 08/2015. It was dark brown in color, 4WD, single cab long bed. This was a great first rig, very reliable except for a few electrical issues with the fusible link. Decent gas mileage for a 4x4 (19-20 on the highway).

I loved it from when I bought it from a guy who used it as a daily commuter for a few years, and regret selling it before going to college. I would love to buy another one at some point, as a project, either 2 or 4 wheel drive (I never did use 4wd much).

I would recommend one of these for a daily driver, or as a work truck. Though not the fastest, it was easy to drive, shift, etc.

It's been better to me than I have ever been to it


Seats wore out.



Transfer case.




And a few other normal things.

General Comments:

I love my old Nissan 720's. I have owned 3.

This truck will run forever unless it's abused too harshly, in which case it's not uncommon to have a few issues, but even then, it seems to always surprise me.

My first 2 Nissan 720's, I admit I extremely abused, and for some reason they always seemed to get me anywhere I wish to go (might not be the fastest pickup, but that's not what trucks are supposed to be for anyway).

I have submerged my Nissan completely in the mud by accident. I have slid off a mountain side into a river, and I have been up and down almost every old goat trail I can find... Yes, being submerged stopped the truck, but it was an easy cleanup to get it back on the road again.

I live in a deep snow area, and with chains this vehicle seems to dig its way anywhere I need to go, and some places I really shouldn't go.

Everything that has gone out or broken in my Nissan, deserves to go out after all I've done to it, and I wouldn't feel as unstoppable in anything else.

I do suggest that if you plan on lifting this truck, to upgrade to much bigger tires to stop the falling over feeling..

I also suggest changing out the auto hubs for manuals, to know for sure when the hubs are locked instead of guessing.

Good solid truck, simple and fun to drive


Since I got the truck last June, all I have had to do was replace the fuel pump relay, bought two of them at a pull-a-part salvage yard for less than 10 dollars; one to replace the bad one, and the other as a spare.

I had to repair a short on the left tail light using a soldering kit, after a couple of attempts of fixing it.

Took the radio out, because it was no good. Never bothered as of yet to put another one in.

General Comments:

Bought my 1984 Nissan 720 for 900 dollars to replace my 1985 Ford F-150 that I sold for 1,100 dollars. I just wanted to downsize to a smaller pick-up that was better on gas.

I bought it from the original owner, and the owner gave me all the maintenance records that have been done to it since it was new. In the last three years before I bought it, the owner put in a new carburetor, new fuel pump, head gasket, battery, belts, tires, brakes, and power steering pump.

It's a king cab, has some minor hail damage and some rust spots, the interior is fair, it's a 3 speed automatic, rare for a pick up for that year, but it has the original transmission and it shifts very smooth.

Starts up every time since I fixed the fuel relay pump. I used it as a back up, so I only drive it once or twice a week. I have had several people who have wanted to buy it from me, but I like it and plan to keep it.
