 This 1965 Nissan Patrol is a left-hand drive. three-door example with an indicated 75k kilometers (~47k miles). Fewer than 3000 60-series Patrols officially made it to the US during the 1960s. though they were more common in South America. This one remained with its original owner in Bogotá. Colombia until coming to the US in 2010. The truck retains an unrestored 4. 0L inline-six. 3-speed manual. and 4×4 system. but was cosmetically refreshed with new paint and upholstery after its importation.   It is a nice driver condition truck. that drives wonderfully.

The truck presents well for a driver and looks at home off road. and a looks a little sharper in pictures than in person. but still presents very nicely.   It was repainted by the prior owner. and the finish bears assorted small cosmetic flaws such as chips and areas of overspray.  Since buying the truck the front has been disassembled to repaint the fenders and install fresh seam beading.

Slab-sided panels appear free of damage repair. while occasional waviness can be spotted down the sides. No meaningful rust has been found after the body was gone over in detail. and exterior corrosion appears limited to surface discoloration at panel edges and hinges. Body-colored steel wheels wear older. weather-checked BFGoodrich rubber. and a swingaway spare resides out back.

Both bumpers appear stock. the front with an integrated tow hook and hand-crank starter guide and the somewhat bent rear with a built-in step and pintle hook tow hitch.  Minimal bright trim looks straight and shows well. including a newly re-chromed grille trim bar and freshly polished headlamp bezels.

The doors include removable top halves and glass looks serviceable in the flip-down windshield with built-in overhead wiper motors. A recent reproduction canvas soft top is in good overall condition with clear plastic windows. fitting tightly over a steel tube framework and including zip-open side and rear panels with some marking inside.

Recently-sourced gray vinyl upholstery on the split front seat and folding parallel rear benches is similar to their original material. Some interior sheet metal has been repainted. though dash chipping remains around the centrally-mounted map light. Serviceable rubber mats protect solid. clean-looking footwells and cargo floor.

Minimal interior trim presents well. including the substantial passenger grab handle and operable vent doors. Simple switchgear. Kanto Seiki instruments. and the factory split-spoked banjo steering wheel all appear to be original. and all controls. lights and accessories are reportedly functional. No seat belts or heater are equipped.

An underseat storage area includes an early-style factory tool box with several original tools including a grease gun and substantial ball-peen hammer. along with a handful of later replacements.

Horsepower for the Patrol's seven-bearing. 4. 0L P-series inline-six was increased to 145 for the 1965 model year. This example runs very well thanks to a newly rebuilt carburetor drawing through fresh fuel lines and filter. Hoses and belts have been replaced along with plugs. wires and a new radiator cap. An original-style generator is retained in lieu of a modern alternator conversion. though older wiring was recently updated.

Much of the engine bay has been refinished within the last year. nbsp;with formerly painted items stripped. cleaned. and refinished including the radiator. nbsp;pulleys. dipsticks. distributor parts. nbsp;oil filter housing. nbsp;factory air cleaner. and more. Aged engine bay hardware items such as brackets. nbsp;throttle linkage. hood prop. and latch were also attended to.

The truck drives very well. with its 3-speed manual shifting smoothly despite a non-synchro first gear. Power is routed to the rear or all four wheels through a 2-speed transfer case. and suspension is via leaf springs front and rear. The truck has been maintained as part of a large private collection.

The short-wheelbase chassis presents clean-looking frame rails. outriggers. and floors thanks to a former lifetime in high and dry Bogotá.  Occasional surface oxidation can be seen along with areas of black sealer and overspray. but there has been no discovered notable rot and the underside will continue to be tidied while for sale.

We paid well over our asking price and that is before the thousands we into the truck to make it even cleaner and more well presented.
