I found a 1968 520 truck in Ukiah, CA (10.5 hours from San Diego) all original with 51,000 miles. No bondo and interior is all immaculate for $2800. Until someone offers me a better deal than that then I may have to get this one already within a few days. Color is somewhat white or beige ish. No rust and never seen snow or salt plus all fenders and rockers are unblemished. Too good to be true. I've been trying to keep it to myself but looks like it's the best deal I have right now.

My problem is how I'd get it here in San Diego. Im new to my job on base so obviously I can't just jet and call in sick, I can't sneak at night after work because I have to make it back in the morning because I have school til noon. And on weekends I've too much errands because we just moved in to a house. And I'm scared the longer I wait the more chances I won't get it.

I just wish there's a much secure way of doing transactions like these without spending too much money.

There's a white 520 up in Washington $4,000 and has L20B motor too. Too bad it's too far and expensive.

Nah I won't get it. He is actually very knowledgable and has tons of Datsun parts that he wanted to sell. I told him to register here.

I've been searching the CL in Southern Cali and what really suxs is your in Jay Leno territory which makes the Datsun prices high, very high in my book. Depending on what has been done to the Datsun.

if your wanting to find a better deal then what can be found in your state, your going to have to travel a long distant. With a tight schedule, I'm not sure how your going to knock this off.

Crap..  I'm crazy, I've actually look at that 68 in greenville...  It was for sale for 1200 about 8 months ago.  Unless there's another 68 with the top of the bed butchered off.

I just bought my first Datsun truck! It's a 521! :) I'll post some pictures. The body is straight, interior is different but I'll restore it to original and the only 2 problems I encountered driving home are the brakes (had to floor it for it to slow/ stop) and how hard it is to shift !!! Was really tough but managed to bring it home without crashing haha.
