Fooling around with a Chevy bed on this Datsun.....

V8, possibly?

The bed's crooked in the last picture, but it's EXACTLY the right size for the cab. Maybe widebody fenders on the front?

Wow, that reminds me of the old days. As I recall in the mid to late 70's someone was doing a dually conversion on Toyotas. They looked a little weird but that sold well!

My dad worked on every kind of car back in the 80s and he said Datsuns were always good cars.

cool project.

i wonder if throwing a v8 in there will be as hard as it is in real life. in the '80's my buddy had a '77 620 that we shoehorned a 283 into, a lot of bfh mods....

we loaded about 500 lbs of shingles by the tailgate & he was able to snap the front wheels off the ground & get some air under them

ever wonder 'bout putting some dana's under it & some 33-35's with a v8?

enough pavement scrapers out there, this would look sweet in the air! especially with the stepside box, flare out the front fenders to match....

I shy away from lifted trucks when they're unnecessary. I live in Maine and the stupid things are EVERYWHERE.

I mean, it's fine if you actually use it but a lot of people around here just tool around in 'em.

Saw a lifted S-10 a while ago, bright yellow with huge wheels... eww.

I might make a mud run truck out of it though... good opportunity for weathering.
