Looks good, my dad had an 86 720 kc that was white with the blue int, yeah VERY blue.

Should you buy it? Clear it with your wife. No wife? You're asking a stupid question then..

'85/'86 they did away with the longitudinal bed seam. That made a really big difference.

I put a brand new weber kit on my truck and as soon as i got it fired up it started clattering like crazy sounds like a deisel and the oil light is on! Awesome that i basically just blew apart a engine.

Curious about that noise too... I only get it when the engine is cold and upon acceleration sorry to thread jack but is it something to look into?
Trust me, I wish she had Datsun badges too...

Awesome lil turck! I really love the wheels you got for it. I was lucky, my engine on the 720 i have was rebuilt about 30,000 miles ago.... but! that was 13 years ago!?!? My father-in-law gave me the truck. He was a heavy equipment transmission re-builder. He bought the truck brand new back in 1984. For one owner the truck is trashed on
