Jhogie’s 64 NL320, barNLove

Postby Jhogie » Mon Jan 14, 2019 7:25 pm

I thought it was about time to start a topic/thread here about my NL320 I’ve named barNLove. The name was inspired by the topic here on nicoclub where I first found out the the pickup was for sale before I picked it up back in Oct. 2016:

The truck is has everything original; black paint, engine, wheel/caps, etc. As the store goes the previous owner used it regularly and it was running when parked close to 20 years before I picked it up.

Since I’ve owned barNLove I’ve only really done a few things to get it up and running.

-Replaced all the brakes.
-Had the fuel tank cleaned.
-Cleaned/refreshened up the fuel lines.
-Sourced a glass fuel bowl.
-Rebuild the fuel pump.
-rebuilt the carburetor.
-Had the generator bearings replaced (so a mild rebuild).
-Replaced the distributor cap, rotor, plugs and wires.
-Tour down and lubed the wiper motor.
-New battery.
-Replaced the brake master cylinder.
-Replaced the clutch master cylinder.
-Rebuilt the clutch slave cylinder.
-A couple oil changes.
-Replaced the gear box(s) fluids.
-Scrubbed and sanded bulb sockets to turn signal and brake lights.
-Replaced the front marker/turn signal lenses.
-Replaced one rear taillight lens (thanks Wayne).
-Had the wheels powder coated.
-New tires.
-Reupholstered the bench seat( yup, did it myself).

Well dam, that’s actually quite a list now that I wrote it out.

I took barNLove to the 2017 Canby Datsun meet and it won the ‘Best Work in Progress’ award. That felt nice that other people could see it’s remaining potential. Also this last summer I drove barNLove in the North Douglas County Fair parade along with my local Datsun club members and that was pretty fun.
