OH SNAP> B120 Shakotan Sunny Truck

I love finding new things to learn about. Hours can be spent listening to new music, or researching new car parts that I don’t need. So when I came across this crazy low little truck, I had to find out as much about it as I could. I’m not too familiar with all the cool old school cars that came out of Japan, so I had to enlist the help of some old school motor-heads to point me in the right direction. It was quickly revealed to be a Nissan Sunny truck (possibly B120 or GB120).

This rad truck is actually a ute, based off the Sunny car. Its basically a Japanese version of an El Camino or Ranchero, which I like because my grandpa had an El Camino with an 8-Track player in it when I was younger, so I am quite fond of quirky rides just like this Sunny.

In Stock form this car would catch many a gear head’s eye I’m sure, but this one in particular is dripping with classic Japanese style. The tires on the 12inch rims look like they could explode with one bad speed bump; the fitment is just crazy! The front lip looks like it might be retrofitted from a different application, but its so well matched that its really hard to tell for sure. I love rides like these, the impractical driven on the street for all the laymen to gawk at.

When I was a kid we had a couple Datsun 620 Bullet-side trucks; one blue and one green. At the time I didn’t know what they were, or what they could be, but when I look back on it, I wish we had kept them around. As I get older, and appreciate more cars, my want list keeps growing from old to new. I had briefly thought about getting another Datsun truck, but after looking at this Sunny, and then hearing that a friend of mine found a complete Toyota Stout in a barn recently, it got me thinking of getting an old rare mini-truck. Maybe someday when I finish my current projects, haha, yeah right…

    If a car is 25 years old or older, it can be registered very easily in the US. Bring it over!
