Description:

1967 Nissan Patrol 2 door, removable doors

For sale is my 1967 L60 Series Nissan Patrol. Nissan imported this model to the US from 1960-1969, and are well-built, versatile vehicles. This example is a short wheelbase 2-door, powered by a 4.0 liter, 145 HP, in-line six cylinder gasoline engine. A 3-speed manual transmission is coupled to a twin-stick (2WD/4WD and High Range/Low Range) transfer case. Locking front hubs, manual steering, manual drum brakes. The front windshield can fold down, the doors can be removed as shown (doors included, in good shape, good glass, a few small dings, painted to match vehicle), utility cargo bed. Cargo bed/tailgate doors are also removable. Max speed is in the 55-60 mph range.
Truck starts right up, no issues with clutch, shifting, Wiper motors work but are not hooked up, no wiper arms. Heater blower works but is not hooked up. Manual choke. All gauges work except fuel gauge, so under dash fuel gauge was installed. All lights work. New battery. Swing-away spare tire carrier. I do not have the rear seats and there is no soft top or hard top included in this sale.
One unique and very practical feature of this model Patrol is that the engine can also be started manually with a hand crank (included, it's shown in the picture of the utility cargo bed). Great feature for off-roading, infrequent use.
The paint is an epoxy, almond in color with a satin finish. It's functional, but has imperfections. The body is very solid, has some minor dents and dings, but overall this vehicle is in better than average condition for it's age. My intention was to use this back and forth to work a couple times a week, and for the beach, but I am out of garage space and unfortunately need to sell.
I am not an expert on Patrols, but it appears the only non-stock parts on this vehicle are the five 33 x 12.5 x 15 tires (est. 70% tread left) on chrome rims, the aftermarket fender flares, a Rochester carburetor, an electric fuel pump, fuel gauge, and new seat belts.
I would consider this Patrol a very solid vehicle and a great candidate for a full restoration, or for the beach, the cabin, hunting, etc. This vehicle will appreciate in value, I consider it to be on par with FJ40's and early Bronco's in terms of robustness, build quality, functionality.
I haven't driven this vehicle much at all, so I would recommend a tune up,brake bleeding/inspection and an alignment prior to use.
I have set a modest opening bid with no reserve, Good luck and happy bidding!
