Another goddamned 620
Posted 14 June 2016 - 10:23 AM
Picked up a 77 long bed 620 in a twofer deal with a buddy. He got a truck that ran but looked a lot like hammered dog shit. I got a truck that didn't run and just looked like normal dog shit.
The truck was sitting at a buddy's over the winter, which made workin on it some what inconvenient. But I got it AAA'd home and I'm getting shit done.
I'll post some pics in a bit.

Whenever I think that I'm out of my mind for putting this much time and money into an old Datsun, all I have to do is look some of your threads to know that I'm not nearly as whack as you are.
You're going to skin a few knuckles, stand up too fast and bump your head, hunt around the floor for the nuts and bolts you dropped, invent a few new cuss words and when you're finished you'll say "That wasn't so hard after all!"

So it needs some work. Pretty much anything brakes related needed to be replaced.
Ive done the master, rear shoes, flex lines, and the rear hard lines.
Look at this!
Still to do wheel cylinders and drums.

I'd suggest hiding the killswitch so no one jacks your shit.
There will be another switch in the line tucked away somewhere. I have yet to wire it in yet.

Hahaha. That would have saved me 20 bucks.
RTV it back on... then rock and roll.
Edit: I'm still laughing

It's off a 46 Desoto. (Made by Chrysler)
looks like a late 40's Pontiac "flying lady" hood ornament ... I couldn't find that exact one, but that's looks cool on the 620
Edit: I did a Google search just now. http://www.ebay.com/...4&ul_noapp=true
Now I might have to sell the damn thing if it's worth that kind of money.
