We bought this on the 4th of July 2012, windshield is cracked and the carpet has been removed.
The exposed metal had surface rust but it wasn't very deep. They have metal you can hammer out, and easy to paint due to simple body lines and replacing interiors with quality materials on the cheap. Would make a great hot rod project, these trucks are getting harder and harder to find in this condition. I encourage all bidders to come and see the truck in person. I'll accept cashiers check, money order, or cash if picking up. August 2013 Update: We've had the truck for a year now, cleaned it up a little, got a couple new parts, re-built the Hitatchi carb, fixed the brakes, bought a new windshield.

We're the third owners, the guy we bought it from bought it in 1974. Scott did a great job and the actual sale took only a few minutes as they had everything ready when I got there. He was very friendly and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Laurel Auto Group to anyone looking for a great deal and wonderful people to work with. The transmission is not bolting right up now but we did get the motor to bolt up by using the Z24 mount on the passenger side of the 70 datsun and the L16's driver side mount on the driver side of the datsun it self. Probably hard to find in a six lug. Once I arrived, Scott Long and I took a test drive, reviewed the features of the vehicle, and I inspected the vehicle.
Bought new Chester Palmer Datsun in Roseville California. New gas tank and lines. Get the D-21 rad just in case it will fit the 521. Bid only if you accept all these terms as the high bid takes the vehicle! We basically want to run only the necessary wiring. You don't have this on the 521.
