#1441944 Sightings 2, the not a datsun but... Thread

Posted by 420n620 on 13 December 2016 - 06:48 AM

1969. 1968 & 1969 are pretty much the same car (to me) but '68 was the last year Chevelle to have a vent window.

the wing window was offered on the GM A bodys up to 72 if the astro vents were NOT installed in the dash. It's rare to find one or see one on a chevelle. Don't have a production number if any made to back this up but it was offered. 



just to prove GM did offer the wing window, here's a 72 Lemans GT-37 without the astro-vents.

yes, the 620's frames are boxed but are made of a inner and outer frame then welded together to make a box frame. 

#1361236 video: how to reindex.

Posted by 420n620 on 10 March 2016 - 07:02 AM

I reindexed my torsion bars in my 521. I turned the bars 2 notches towards the engine. Put everything back together....and front sits higher now. Obviously I went the wrong way with turning the bars. Repulled bars and turned them away from the engine. But now the adjusters at the other end of the bars (end that is bolted back in place) is too far out to bolt. How do I get around this?

I found that you only need to move the torsion bar spring 1 spline. This way your able to keep the original tension on the bar or close to it when you adjust it back to the original specks. And you'll be able to adjust it without using a jack.

missing a few random emblems and such, any chance on these? passenger fender, grille emblem and signal lenses?



passenger fender ~ I might have one left. It's on a 620 that I'm not sure if I'm selling the 620 complete or parting out. More leaning to parting out. 


grill emblem / fender emblems ~ yes


signal lenses ~  red and yellow ~ yes


I'll get pic's for you this AM, shortly.

Where are you located? I have a local guy who has a Chevy luv bed that I figured might fit in the mean time

And yeah that hinge is a big concern to me, does anyone make a sheet metal replacement for that? If not I'm sure I could make one, but it'seems more of a safety concern to me

located here > https://www.google.c...19!2d40.2671941

I was looking at 1 of the 620's that I'm parting out and it's got a nice hood hinge section. We can talk about that when I get ready to zaw zaw the body up, which will be happening very soon. I'll send you a PM so I can ask a few questions. 


Dude slow down with the 'maybe I shouldn't have joined...' There are over 22,000 members on the forum and your getting upset by the posts of only a few.



Build your truck the way you want to and have fun. Its rough so fix it then drive it

^^ here's good advise, don't get thin skinned on us now. You've already decided to fix the 620 up and as long as your mind is made up, so is mine, not sure about the others. Lets move forward and just ignore the "just my 2 cents worth" comments.

It came with a brand new hood, new drivers door, and new passenger side fender. It also came with used replacements for the upper and lower valences, tailgate insert, rocker panels,and grille. Oh, and 2 brand new front bumpers. I can make floors, that's easy, the bed sucks lmao

dammmmm, niiiiccccceeeee, how about some pic's of the parts.


What about the upper section to the firewall where the hood hinges mount. that looked a little swiss cheesy.


I wished you was closer cause I've got a 620 bed in good condition. Sucks that it will most likely be scrapped.

You guys gonna tow it out here for me? Because I sure as hell don't have the means. Only spent $100 on it, and then $400 for the brand new body panels, so regardless of what you guys think, I'm going to build it in spite of it all

we heard you the first time, no reason to post it twice.  :lol:



sure I'll tow to your place, you got money for me to bring it or will this be put on the Bernie's FREE credit card account.  ;)  just kidding if you didn't know. 



for a $100.00 plus $400.00 for the panels ( which panels did you get ?? ) your on your way. Just so you'll know. I'll be posting in the classifieds for sale 620 body sections. Looks like you might need some body sections. Time will tell. 


anyways, looking forward to seeing this 620 get put back together.  :thumbup:

Look under Seattle craigslist.  most are not rusted out and still already running and in the end CHEAPER


Just to far gone. IN my opinion




Oh lots of Salt on Jap vehicle = rusted out!!!!!!!!!

first, welcome to Ratsun, theirs lots of good info here. 


second, Hainz is so correct. Should of been looking in the north west for a 620.

No matter how much money you throw at that 620, it will never be a done project, ever, to much rust, it's to far gone. 

hope you didn't spend money on it. If you did, you just got educated and that's how some peeps learn, the hard way. 


word of advise, don't waste your time and money, start looking for a much better project, not a money pit. The form has a east and west craig's list thread, that's where you should be looking. GL in your search.

#1322841 Saved a 521 from being a 'work truck' what's next?

Posted by 420n620 on 28 November 2015 - 05:55 AM

ignore the haters and do what you feel is best for YOU. It's not their money that their investing into the 521. By responding to the haters is just feeding them more info. Most of them are still working on a 5 year old project, if not longer. 


If you're wanting to sell the 521, the classifieds are at the top of every page.


here's the link > http://community.rat...et/classifieds/



and since your a young man and new to the form. You will need to get thick skinned. GL with what ever direction you go. You can't and won't be able to satisfy everyone in life.

#1315753 620 blinker housing????

Posted by 420n620 on 09 November 2015 - 06:47 AM

if your looking for one for a 79 620, believe thats a one year only turn signal switch. The 78 is a little different cause of 1 wire. I can check to make sure today.




normally all you need to do is give the switch a good cleaning and some die-electric grease on the contacts and your good for many years to come. 




opppps, mike beat me posting the pic.
