New member from Kansas. I recently bought a 1974 Datsun 620 pickup from a guy in Oklahoma. I'm extremely exited to see how this truck will end up. I've been following this forum since I picked up my truck about a month ago and finally kind of learned how to navigate the site. So I wanted to make an account and get a chance to learn and soak up some information on these things. I have pictures but not sure how to upload. I know I need a photo bucket but how do I go about doing that?

That might help. I know there is another thread about photobucket specifically.

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!"

Thanks for adding me guys. Here is my truck I'll be posting more pics tomorrow under the hood and everywhere else. Let me know what you think. Any advice? Any ideas? Anything you want to know? I'm excited.

That's a pretty straight 620. Nice score. Stock wheels and caps, sweet. Grill and bumper are nice too

It looks like the previous owner did a paint job before sale. To bad they painted things that shouldn't be painted, hood trim, door handles, taillight housing, from what I can see.

Does it run and drive. Check brakes, fuel, charging. All good than drive it. That's all the advise I have until you can tell us 'the plan'

The truck actually runs very well. The engine has been rebuilt and the heads milled. No coolant leaks and the radiator holds compression. The front crankshaft seal is leaking a small bit however. Other than that no fluid leaks. It runs and shifts just fine and the clutch is new when the previous owner sent the engine off to get rebuilt.

Start your own thread. Plenty of A10s left to be had.
