When it comes to Craigslist posts, often times you need to read between the lines to understand what’s really being offered for sale.  That’s exactly what we’re seeing with this 1997 Nissan SE King Cab being offered here on Craigslist in Hartford, Connecticut where what appears to be the estate of the original owner is looking to sell this unmolested, 71K original mile example.  The NADA Classic, Collectible, Exotic, and Muscle Car Appraisal Guide currently lists their “Low”, “Average”, and “High” value range for these trucks at $3,200, $5,325, and $7,525, respectively, so this truck is priced for quick sale and if you are seriously interested you can contact the Estate Executor directly at 860-817-7158.

Nissan produced the U.S. version of its D21 pickup from 1985 through 1997.  Affectionately known as the “Hardbody” in the U.S., these are durable and quite capable trucks both on- and off-road.  While this example appears rust-free and well maintained, you need to confirm whether the original owner replaced the timing belt on the four cylinder at the proper 60K mile service interval.  If there is no documentation provided, replace it immediately.  Otherwise, with only 71k original miles, cold air conditioning, and what appears to be a lightly used yet well-maintained one-owner truck, this example will make an excellent parts chaser or perhaps a great first truck for the 16 year old in your family.  Good luck with the purchase!
