720 Diecast Models?

Postby taminator989 » Tue Feb 10, 2009 1:16 pm

Has there ever been a diecast model produced for the 720 Pickup?

I used to own a silver 1983-1/2 five-speed Sport Truck. I bought it new in May 1983 and owned it for 10 years. I LOVED that truck, but it was only a two seater. My wife and I became a family of three, then four...so I needed something more "family" friendly. I sold it to a high school Junior over the summer of 1993, and he was tickled to get it!

Since 1983-1/2 was the first model year they began putting "NISSAN" on the tailgates (with a smaller "Datsun" positioned below), you'd think a manufacturer of diecast models would have jumped at producing one to sell. I've been looking for something like this for several years now, and would like to have one to display on my desk next to my pictures of "Ol' Nissie."

Anyone know of any leads on a 720 diecast model, preferrably a Sport Truck? Thanks in advance!
