Hi, my name is Dierk from the city of Osnabrück/Germany and I´ve just bought a 1979 Datsun 620 with J15 motor.
I found this car in Greece from where I drove all the way back home - about
2200 kilometer and the lil hustler did well.
Still a lot of things to do until it can be registered in Germany - our german TÜV which has to inspect all cars before giving the permission to take part in public traffic is very hard to convince....

Besides I can not modify this car as many of you did - bigger wheels and some other tuning - in Germany it is not allowed to change anything on historical cars - if I do so I will not get permission to drive this car here. So I only can try to restore all parts as they were before......

The biggest problem will be to get parts - this car has never been sold in Germany - just a few in UK, Portugal and Greece - parts are really hard to find and I hope to get some help in getting those within this forum

First thing I need urgently is a used power brake booster - I have drum brakes front and rear

Found one refurbished on ebay but seller want´s to have 300 US$ incl. shipping to Germany - almost more expensive than the whole car.......
Big smile























and my other Datsun - Silvia S110 from 1980...

That's a slick looking truck!  I would be interested in reading the regulations on the older vehicles, in English, lol.  There may be some loop holes!  I also didn't expect the truck to be LHD, which is good for you because we can help you out with parts!!  Oh and by the way, WELCOME!!!  

I've been to Ansbach and I work with a guy that's from North of Frankfort!

Welcome to the forum Dierk, glad to see you made it. Nice lookin 620. Like the roll bar.  Your dash looks mint, no cracks Big smile  Yeah I didn't realize vehicles there are LHD.  
Whats the decal/sticker on the front bottom right side of the bed, right behind the cab?

Hi Rusty - it´s the "Li´l Hustler" thing.....
Lot´s of work waiting for me - bed has got cracks in painting and lots of dings...
Motor is running strongly - just the brakes are horrible with non working booster...
dashboard ist nearly perfect, seats have to be done and all lights have to be replaced
for the german license - they need a certain standard for to be used in European Union..
burocrats over here ....
I also would like to lower the car a bit and replace the wheels or look for hubcaps.

also would like to say, love the color of your 620 and it also being a long box  is super cool.
