#1572722 1974 620 4x4 selling not sure what to ask

Posted by Scotrp on 05 July 2018 - 01:02 PM

I've got a 1974 620 4x4 I want to sell, it hasn't ran for years. But 4x4s of that year are rare and being a 74 it's smog exempt here in California so it's gotta be worth a decent price. Any ideas on how much I should ask? The truck is complete no broken glass some rust and I believe it had a bad head gasket. I tried to find something similar for sale to get a price but they are so rare I couldn't find one.

Posted by AZ720 on 06 July 2018 - 10:57 PM

Has anyone one swapped dist from 1985 to 1984? I have 1985 dist but it has plug and 1984 goes into black box. I know the rotors are different too.

#1572855 1983.5 Nissan 720 4x4 on BFG 30x9.50r15 Tires

Posted by ExFilms on 06 July 2018 - 03:26 PM

My father-in-law bought this truck new and only used it on the weekends.  It's the mid-year model badged in both Nissan and Datsun and it was the first year for the color Tropic Tan.  It only has 69,000 miles on it but has been badly beaten by the sun as it sat outside for decades.  My main reason for posting is because I wanted to replace the stock 235/75r15 tires with larger ones but on the original 15x7 steel wheels to keep it looking relatively stock.  After browsing this and other forums I learned that 30x9.50r15 would fit nicely but I really struggled finding a good pic of what that would look like.  So here it is for anyone else looking for those pics.  I also had the rims powder coated while the tires were off.  Future plans include a 2-3" suspension lift and a light cosmetic restoration.  I'll post future pics in this thread.

#626687 Mitsubishi Addiction lol

Posted by RaptorReed on 04 February 2012 - 12:18 AM

Hey everyone, I'm Tim and I don't currently own any Dattos, but in light of one of my buddies (tristingrind) picking up one I'm sure I'll be learning about them soon enough. I do however own a '76 Mitsubishi Colt Galant Coupe and '77 Colt Galant Wagon, used to have a 91 Galant VR4 but due to some serious cancer issues it was in my best interest to strip and scrap at the time. I believe it was Bananahamuck (sorry, I forget your name lol) I met at the NissanParts/MitsuParts meet in Olympia back in August, real cool guy! I was the lone Classic Mitsubishi surrounded by Z cars and 510s that day lol. I know there's several other WA folks on here so...I'm located way up in Oak Harbor, WA, but often enough venture down to the Seattle-Tacoma area periodically. I'm sure some have seen the wagon at a few meets here and there or on the road.

Pics! We all love pics!
The Wagz! Before I swapped the gawdy stock front bumper out for a '75 chrome bumper.

Aussie Amber tails installed.

And my Coupe which as of late is under going a 4G63t 2.3l stroker swap biggrin.gif

#679369 93 Eclipse gs Widebody

Posted by Syncro on 01 May 2012 - 09:53 PM

Just noticed this section and had to post up my eclipse aka Mischief, project. I got the car back in 2007 when I was 11. The car ran great but we never used til we got tired of fixing up another pos 1.8l eclipse we had. anyway, here's what it basically looked like when i got it, except paint was much worse:

2011-04-19_12-09-44_924.jpga couple of months, my dad decides we should build something similar to a 76 camaro he'd built in the 80's. This meant fender flare's, wide wheels, a whale tail, and several other things I'm not gonna get into, basically all efforts were to make it more aerodynamic. I worked on the whale for a couple months and its still not finished, but here's a couple of old pics of it after the whale tail and hood bulges. 2010-10-22182157-1.jpgKeep in mind that the current hood is just a mold for the fiberglass hood I'll be making. I'll update with more photo's tomorrow.

#621072 Fisch Art- Sneaks datsun illustrations into kidsbooks!

Posted by fisch on 27 January 2012 - 10:39 AM

Thought you guys would appreciate this. Most of you know I am an illustrator who does kids books, novels that sort of thing. So I finished two books over the last few months and snuck some Datsun art in there!

In this book. I did 75 silhouettes, and the author never wrote what type of car it was so... mua ha ha. (And I gave it a Ratsun Badge. Represent!)

Posted Image

Here is the rest of the book.

This one is a children's book and is a sequel to one I did that came out last year. This is my 510! (Though I had to get creative with the proportions to make the characters big enough!)

So, even when I am not on Ratsun, I am on Ratsun.

#974729 Eagle Adam ripped me off

Posted by Eagle_Adam on 31 August 2013 - 04:37 PM

Hold the fuck up asshole.

Yes you paid me $90
Yes I sent u a radiator and a fan with the promise of following up with 620 hood arms.

Yes I have not yet sent you the hood arms yet, still haven't found em to be honest

And yes you sent some PM's

But that where the truth ends and your BS and lack of understand of the truth begins

You don't know me, you have no idea what's going on in my life that are 10x more important than car parts.

So go fuck yourself and your public cry for attention.

I refunded you PayPal payment in FULL, your $90 is a drop ik the bucket bro, as for me....

Well ill let the friends I've made and countless people I've sent parts to speak for my reputation in response to your bitch ass post.

Fuck you, I'm done

We aquired this bus about 1 year ago, for a 1964 it's in really good shape.  Although at first the body looked good with minimal bubbling with closer inspection I could tell there was some sort of body filler.  After sitting the winter it was looking a bit worse, not much but rust bubbles make me sick!  Anyways I'll type more later I just want to upload a few pictures of it.

#1061054 UPDATE: STOLEN 521: FOUND!

Posted by jammin on 05 March 2014 - 02:16 PM

Hey everyone!  Got a call from King County Sherrif @ 5:00 this morning...my 521 was found with the thief driving it to boot!! So the Datsun gods were a smiling!   I asked if the thief resisted arrest, but sadly no. But they got the bastard and no damage to the White Pony.   They drove it from Seattle to Bellingham and then back, so I guess I know she is roadworthy!!If anyone is from Burlington, Washington and they are missing a sweet moped, it was in the back of my truck and the king county police have it.   Well..its actually at the tow yeard still.  Thanks for all the kind words...there is justice out there!!!

#789502 Maroon 510 crash

Posted by ace0073 on 04 November 2012 - 10:54 PM

this is Aolë 2 say thank you 2 everyone that even looks at this. If you have done more then thank you 2. This has taken well over 3.5 hours 2 type so please take a few minutes 2 read (trust I filled n time last 2 b more accurate). If you don't know what happened then read thread. Per docs I would never regain consciousness or if I did I'd b a vegetable. Well neither ended up true. Basically, I feel like I have come far but I have far 2 go. I learned 2 talk but I still can't stand or walk. I was supposed 2 have no memory but I forgot a lot & I remember a lot. 2 things I do remember are rockets and DATSUNS. It was very nice 2 think about fixing my car but it's totaled. Ask anything you want.

#688823 Starion with illegal mods, because it's something I'd drive...

Posted by Komeuppance on 19 May 2012 - 09:05 PM

So, yeah, that's my ride.

... it's that Starion in the background, haha.

Better include a Datsun in my pic so I fit in here:
I've crashed a few Datsun meets.

The ol' Saturday meets.

Back in the day...

Got tired of bottoming out. Shortened housings with MR2 Tokiko Illuminas.

Oh yeah...

Oh no...

Got tired of not being able to over speed bumps, so I built a full 3" turbo back exhaust.

Drove to Vegas.

When the engine bay was clean lol...

And where she sleeps at night.

Me smashing around Mt Akina... lol, not really.


#994648 Nobody wants to play with me :( vintage mitsubishi?

Posted by IncorpoRatedX on 17 October 2013 - 04:20 PM

hey guys, it's not a datsun but i often find datsun guys rocking similar styles to what im doing with my car and I dont really have an active forum to participate in, the vintage mitsu ones are generally pretty dead. I registered on here because I figured I could find some agressive wheel combos on here in 4x114, moreso than other forums I frequent anyhow. People often come up to me and say 'sick datsun dude, what year' when i tell them it's a mitsu they always respond with 'whoa! never seen one' haha


Important bits:

73 Mitsubishi Galant Wagon (dodge colt)

Turbo 4G63

Datsun ZG flares

Work Meister CR-01 15x10/8 combo


here's some pics:


early on i had diamond racing wheels






















#974938 My apologies to you Adam and Ratsun

Posted by cruznude on 31 August 2013 - 09:59 PM

Lets just say that first, sorry Adam about critisizing you and your integrity.  I've never met you and from what I've read in the past, I should of trusted you or at least not been so hostile with my words.  The fact is yes, people have busy lives and this world doesn't evolve around just myself.  Please accept my apologies.  I will pay you for the parts and shipping.  I'll send you the monies again in the morning.  To all of those who actually know you and had words to say.  I didn't mean for all this shit to hit the fan.  I just wanted a response and got a little more.  I'm sorry
