Curbside Classic Clue

The ’64 Datsun pickup had you guys stumped good, but I could tell you were working hard. There were some really good shots at an obscure vehicle. I’m guessing it was the fact that these very early Datsun pickups were essentially unheard of anywhere except pretty much just in LA and maybe the Bay Area. Now I try to avoid hints, but let’s just say that this vehicle was much more evenly distributed across the land, so you midwesterners have an equally good shot at it. Happy head scratching!

My comment isn't showing up. This looks like the lower cladding on my Jeep Cherokee sport, but with the pic turned vertical, and the color worn off.
Whether it's vertical or horizontal, that gap is big. It must be a Chrysler product. I'll guess '60s Valiant.
I'd say a mid-70s Chevy Monza hatchback. One of the better looking Chevrolet's from that decade (quality issues aside...).
Sticking with the Datsun/Nissan theme...it looks remarkably similar to the trim on the cab of my '85 720 series Nissan truck. The door is open in this picture though.
