Hello, 1970s. The Datsun/Nissan compact pickup truck, advertised as the "Li'L Hustler Deluxe," arrived in the United States in 1955 after debuting in Japan. The model pictured on the left is an early "King Cab" model, a popular vehicle in the early to mid-1980s. In addition to "gargantuan legroom," early King Cab models offered single wall beds with rope ties and 11.3 cubic feet of storage space. Some countries sold four-door varieties of this truck, but there was no such luck in the United States.
