Original Sky Blue: 1980 Datsun Pickup

I can’t give a good justification why the big guns at Nissan decided to market their US offerings with the Datsun badge, but I’m going to say that I prefer the old Datsun name.  Perhaps it is because modern Nissans are such deplorable piles of plastic, but I miss the old days of the classic Datsun logo with dat sun in the middle. Find this 1980 Datsun Pickup offered for $3,200 in Oroville, CA via craigslist.  Tip from Terry.

 From the seller:

Datsun mostly all original. 85K Original miles! Great little truck! Tires and wheels, tow package, blue tooth stereo, 5-speed. Original paint, could not bring myself to repaint it. Pink slip in hand. Bought a new truck, can’t keep both. Make me a reasonable offer.
