Dragup Truck: 1968 Datsun 520 Pickup V8

I love craigslist.  It is the best place for finding picture of a picture in an advertisement.  Some sellers don't have camera phones or the capability of uploading digital photos --and there is nothing wrong with that -- but the guy (or gal) who takes a picture of a picture is indeed a strange character.  Find this 1968 Datsun 520 Pickup V8 offered for $6,000 in Schuyler, VA via craigslist.  Tip from seant.

If you are trying to sell a truck, it just makes sense to run out to the garage, barn, carport, or racecar hauler, and snap a few current pictures...but instead we get a picture of a picture...but at least the seller includes two is just another picture of the same photograph.  Martha is probably an awesome ride and I'd love to rave about the details...but here is the entire text of the advert:
1968 Datsun drag race truck 383 stroker roller engine very well build with tunnel ram 2x4 ,power glide trans with brake. delay box. two step ,dana 60 with 620 gears. call robert show contact info or show contact info 6,000 obo

The truth is this could be a fantastic deal for a sorted V8 swapped pickup, but you'll need to go in person to confirm anything.  See a better picture-in-picture listing?


  1. Nope, those were two DIFFERENT photographs that he took pictures of (check the angle on the rear window).

    I will not comment on how awesome a ride Martha is. I never even met her.

  2. But the person had to have had the means to upload photos, via smartphone or SD card or what have you, in order to post these P-o-Ps!

  3. What do you think the chances are of getting bonked on the head when you meet the seller?

  4. You guys are being too Harsh! Probably an older feller, and MAYBE its inside that trailer where he cant get a current photo...Definitely a fun ride at a decent price if it's sorted. STREET cruiser?
