The truck starts easily, runs well, shifts nicely, and is very fun to drive. It looks great for its age but is certainly not perfect. The windshield has some chips. The body of the truck has chips, scratches, and small dings. The front edge of the hood and the bottom of the passenger door have rust (the truck comes with an additional passenger door in the same factory blue color).

The previous owner removed a bedliner that had been in the truck for many years. This kept the single-layer bed walls and tailgate in remarkable condition. The fuel gauge works occasionally. The horn, original Datsun AM radio, heater, wipers, speedometer, odometer, temp gauge, and lights all work. The parcel shelf (below the glovebox) is missing but the mounting brackets and bolts are there. The original kick panels and door panels are in excellent condition.

* passenger door in the same factory blue color (with window glass, wing window, regulator, and interior grab handle)
