Wow nice truck!!!! Very clean.    The shift boots are still available new  at the dealer for about $36.  Thank you for the pictures.  The inside of your cab is extremely clean.  Keep us updated.

Really? How would I find out the part number for the boot?

I have a odd request. Can you get pictures of the fuel tank and how it mounts?
I ask because I have always thought I had an 11.9 gallon fuel tank ........till I needed a tank...........my early year 78 king cab has the 11.9 gallon fuel tank, my 79 has a 13 gallon and they mount differently.

Ill be putting in on the lift next week, and ill shoot some pictures then.

How do the front and rear window gaskets look?  Having issues with mine & having problems finding quality replacements at a reasonable price.  Just had new front & rear windows installed last July and the gaskets are already splitting & cracking.

Really? Are they factory Datsun gadgets? I am lucky that mine are in great condition. I think the truck being stored in a garage helped quite a bit, since the UV rays of the sun does break down rubber over time...

Got my truck up on the lift for the first time today. Underneath is fairly nice. I was happy. No surprises. Still really want to disassemble, sandblast and return to new. Possibly next winter...?

Exhaust is ugly, possibly original...?

Little bit of scaling starting on the frame.

Floors are doing their flooring thing.

Carrier, for carrying.

I'm still patiently waiting for some bits to arrive. Thanks for looking...!

Thanks guys: I am a lucky duck, no doubt. I am patiently waiting for some parts to arrive so I can get the interior back to 100% stock condition. I can't wait to enjoy the truck for the summer and then hopefully begin to restore the underside...

I paid to much/picked these up...

To replace the ones I have. I thought that the previous owner had made his own, since all the corners were square and there was some missing holes and such. Now I have an extra set to sell to someone who is in need..!

Then after removal I so discovered they were original, with wood-grained sticker-paper applied. It came off rather easily. It also removed the black paint, so a fresh coat of paint and they should look nice.

Then, I removed the vinyl floor covering. Surprise! (Sad Trombone)

The drivers floor horse-hair padding was soaking-wet, the passengers floor was dry. Luckily, someone had attended to the rust a long time ago, so the drivers floor is minimal. The passengers floor hasn't been touched. It's a bit of a bummer, but the rust does not go thru the metal, so that's good.
