Teal Wagon: 1970 Datsun 520 Pickup

The Datsun 520/521 pickup was built from 1965 through 1972, right in the middle of the biggest explosion in performance and horsepower in the US market. But Nissan didn’t care, they were building a simple car for simple people and it was powered by a 1.3 to 1.6 liter J-series inline4 that made about as much power as the average domestic’s air conditioning system consumes at idle.
