1963 Datsun L320 Pickup Truck

I have to admit that I know nothing about this truck. I've never seen one before. I just imagine it restored with a darker blue paint job and a set of period correct Crager type mags and think it would be a cool truck to own.

In stock form, this may not be the most practical truck to own. I believe it came with the Datsun "E Engine", which is a 1.2 liter 4 that puts out a whopping 48 HP. Top speed is probably somewhere around 65 MPH (and it may be up around 5000 RPM at that speed - depending on what differential Datsun put in this thing).

The truck being offered on eBay is rust free and fairly straight. It is missing some trim pieces, which I suspect are not easy to find. The seller has a second truck (available as a separate sale) that appears to have some, but not all of the misssing trim pieces.

I have no idea what these are worth. The opening bid on this truck is $500.00 and there's no reserve.

I normally don't write about vehicles I know nothing about and can find very little information on, but this is so unusual I thought I'd share it and hope someone has some information they can add.
