I have been avoiding this but here it is my 86 720 king cab $900 wonder. I purchased this in Elko Nevada in June of 2011. Immediately ordered a Weber Kit from Pierce Manifolds. Installed that and flushed the power steering. Complete Rock Auto tuneup. New Hoses and belts. Had radiator flushed and oil changed to a 10w30 Blend. New exhaust manifold and complete new exhaust minus the cat. The shop in Elko Nevada for some reason wanted an extra $200 to put the cat back in. about a year later it was time for more Maintenance so I put tires, brakes, everything replaced except master cylinder and power booster. Also replaced u-joints, carrier bearing, and transmission and rear end fluids. Had radiator flushed and winterized each fall.
Well I loaded up a 6 x 12 single axle Uhaul trailer with as much Datsun parts as I could, my 50" plasma and my surround sound and miscellaneous tools. All my personal belongings went in the king cab portion of the truck. And on Sunday December 15 2013 at 2:30 pm I left my 12 x 40 storage shed In My Buddy Alan's hands and headed home to Phoenix in my little 86 720 king cab.
Leaving Battle Mountain Nevada there is a mountain range I had to climb and it was 5 to 10 mile an hour up the grades, I stopped and fueled up after about 90 miles and checked everything as I had been climbing but the worst of the climb was still ahead of me. I climbed up into the dark of night and found my way to Beatty Nevada and decided to get a room and eat. The next morning I left my hotel and continued South out of Beatty looking for a gas station as I had not filled up the night before. Well the only gas station in Beatty was on the North end of town and I had past it on my way in the night before. I had a little over a quarter tank and chose to risk it and forge on. About an hour layer I had not found gas and was starting to sweat it as I was slowly approaching another Mountain range and new I did not have enough gas to make it over that. well I rounded a curve at the base of the mountain range and there it was a cafe/gas station/convenience store/parlor. Yes I food, gas, and then some!
I finally got home about 5:30 Monday evening. I had not been home for 19 months and I was Happy to see it.
The little 720 did not miss a lick on the trip. Oh I forgot to mention when I bought the little truck It showed 190,000 + on the broken odometer. She might be rough but she is dependable!
I will ad pictures tomorrow as I can not find any at this time.
