Not sure about Datsun/Nissan but I think the little Toyota trucks used solid front axles until about '85 or so. May be wrong about the year they changed. None left around here as they are all rusted away and gone.

I bet...I'd love to go out west and rummage around some salvage yards. I bet there are tons of old stuff sitting around in primo non rusty shape. I keep our stuff meticulously cleaned and nice but a lot of people don't and you see rust and rot on 5 year old vehicles due to the road salt and winters. Even my '09 Chevy HHR (work provided car) that just sees auto car washes occasionally, lives outside, and has 107,000 miles already has some minor corrosion issues.
