Newest addition. This was my Great Uncle's 620 that he bought used in 1983. He recently passed away and his wife got a hold of me to see what it was worth. She had a friend of theirs, that works for a local car lot, offered her hardly anything. So I bought. Its a 77 with 195k miles and all original motor. Has some dents here and there with a slightly messed up front fender and rear bed damage. Some rust but good floor boards. Ill get better and more pictures once I have time to go through it. Also to think up a name for the title thread (fixed)

Great Uncles 620 seems like a good thread title. 

 

Nice score, and good job sticking it to that car lot :lol:

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!"

Hey look at that... seems like missing on the 720 was just setting you up to get this.

Some more pictures for you guys.  Floor boards driver side has surface rust.  But there are leaks present and looks to be coming from windshield gasket.  I'll know more once I tear into it.

 

And to answer Hogie's question. Yes, its a runner but tired.  Definitely going to upgrade front brakes.  Stock engine still has smog pump connected with its belt.  And it comes with a shop manual and receipts. Even includes receipts from original owner. Looks like it had a blown head gasket back in 1992

Cool pic of the jack and rod!

I was going to say the same thing but Farmer already does a lot of traveling, even if it's without a Datsun, to come see us at shows and meets so maybe we should arrange a cruise down to see him. There hasn't been any meets down south so let's make one happen
