G'day mate, what are you wanting to do with it?

Is it going to be your Daily driver or just a mud basher?

haha that looks like the same steering wheel that came with my lux. The old owner said it was because he needed to climb up under it to get in. Beats me. you have 5 years to make it awesome mate good luck with it.

ivé got no idea why the old owner put this steering wheel on it it's too small and he welded it in:confused:. lol and there is still plenty of leg room
and yeah hopefully in 5 years i will be able to build it up big and tough

thanks

The Datsun 720 is basically the original Nissan Navara.

You don't see many 4wd versions around these days and even the 2wd versions are starting to dissapear. Unfortunately they are quite prone to rusting out.

Good to see your keen at 13 mate, you should have a pretty tough truck once your old enough to drive it legally...
