Listed for sale is my ultra rare, left hand drive, 1970 Datsun U521 pick-up. If you know Datsuns, you know how hard these are to come by; I don't know of another U521 in the states.
Purchased as an all original survivor, this truck was restored in 2013 (in Costa Rica) and then imported to, California as of July 2016.
-Body was stripped, and painted.-All rubber except ¼ pop-out windows have been replaced (glass and trim all original).-Interior reupholstered-Engine, transmission, and driveshaft, have all been rebuilt-New OEM carburetor -Modern electrical System
Overall this Datsun is in great condition, given its age, and where it's from. Although not perfect, it's still a phenomenal vehicle. If I were to rate the exterior, I would give it a 8/10, and the interior would also get a modest 8/10, I would give the drive train a solid 8/10. Fortunately this Datsun is from an arid region in Costa Rica, which is one of the reasons why it's still around and hasn't rotted away.
Does not include a radio, although its pre-wired and speakers are in place.
It also has power locks and windows that work fine.
This Datsun is a great weekend car, beach cruiser, or hobby car. Being that it's so unique, it could even be used as a great marketing tool for the right company.
I have owned many different Datsuns, from 510's, 620's, 520's and many more, but no Datsun turned heads like this one does. I'm selling it because i'm trying to fund a building project, and I already have too many vehicles.
JUST A QUICK NOTE THAT I ADDED A LAST PIC OF THE LOWERING BLOCKS THAT WILL MAKE THE REAR END SIT LEVEL WITH THE FRONT IF THAT'S WHAT YOU PREFER.
$500.00 NON REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT REQUIRED WITHIN 24 HOURS AUCTION CLOSE AND THE REST WITHIN A WEEK AND THE CAR IS LISTED ELSEWHERE SO THE AUCTION CAN BE CLOSED AT ANY TIME.
OF COURSE THIS IS A 48 YEAR OLD TRUCK SO THERE IS NO WARRANTY AND IT IS IN AS IS CONDITION.
