Four Brothers Ranch – 1965 Datsun 320

October 23, 2013

It’s interesting to find that, as recently as the mid-1960s, there were cars that are not considered freeway capable. One of these was the Datsun 320 pickup. While only having 60hp should not prevent you from maintaining freeway speeds (various compact foreign cars of the time did), the low gearing to support a 1-ton load capacity would. That said, for an around town runner – or, in a larger city, an alternative to a scooter or one of those metermaid cars – this truck would work just fine, and would allow you to occasionally move car parts, furniture, and livestock. Which brings us to our feature truck, a 1965 Datsun 320 in Spanish Springs, NV, near Reno, for $1800.
