Truck looks AWESOME, Jerry.You were damn lucky to find such a nice specimen for $500. Glad to see you're giving it some much deserved attention.

Basically, they make tall sidewalls look less tall.
However, I tend to agree with you: whitewalls rarely look good on cars made after 1959. There are rare exceptions....but I don't think that truck is one of them...especially not with gray wheels.That's the same reason I hate the new fad of rubber band tires wrapped around shiny-rimmed 20" wheels: it looks JUST LIKE whitewalls from a distance or while in motion.

Hahahahaha. '60s Datsun frame = no towing capacity, even if it had a B52 twin jet nacelle welded into the bed.I'd cram a 6-cyl L-series in there if I had to swap (assuming the long L will fit). LD28 in that thing would be sweet.
