Autotrader Find: All Original 1983 Datsun 720 4×4 King Cab

Today’s Autotrader find is a 1983 Datsun 720 4×4 King Cab with low miles.  Old pickups from the 1980s and 1990s are experiencing a resurgence in popularity, and this one fits the bill perfectly.

First some background on the Datsun 720.  The truck was introduced for the 1980 model year as a follow-up to the 620, and sales lasted until 1986.  Here in the US, only regular and extended cab models were offered, though a four-door crew cab model was available in other markets.  Nissan was in the process of phasing out the Datsun brand from the US in the 1980s, and the 720 was sold as a Datsun until halfway through the 1983 model year, at which point it adopted Nissan branding, and for a time wore ‘Datsun by Nissan’ badges in its grille and on its tailgate.  

This 1983 Datsun 720 comes with just 109,524 miles on the odometer, and though it’s for sale in Ardmore, PA, the listing states it spent its life in Arizona, and should therefore have a very clean undercarriage virtually devoid of any rust.  It wears Nissan badging all around and comes with orange ‘4×4’ stickers on a yellow exterior.  The interior is beige, and the presence of voltmeter and oil pressure gauges at the bottom of the center stack tells us that this is likely a mid-tier DX trim.  Under the hood is a 2.4-liter gas four-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission.  The asking price of $19,995 reflects the low mileage and overall great condition.  If you’re interested, this vintage 1983 Datsun pickup is located at a dealer in the greater Philadelphia area.
