1988 Nissan Safari Patrol. 20MPG Diesel Engine. 5 Speed Transmission. Inter-cooled Turbo. New 31” Cooper AT-3 Tires. PTO Winch. Safari Roof



Licensed and Registered as a Diesel in Colorado. USA


Legally Imported Japanese Domestic Market Vehicle


VIN # VRGY60600785


You are bidding on a rare Nissan Safari Diesel that was legally imported to the US about four years ago. The Safari was built for the Japanese Domestic Market and has all the options that were always “dreamed of” but never available here in the America! The factory Diesel engine produces 114 HP and 195 ft/lbs of torque. while still achieving 20+ mpg on the highway!  We recently installed an aftermarket turbo with Intercooler. which gives the truck much better power and especially here in Colorado at higher altitudes. This vehicle has only 47. 00 miles on an engine known to go to 500. 00 or more with proper care and maintenance. With the robust 5-Speed transmission. inter-cooled turbo. new tires and PTO winch this vehicle can go virtually anywhere the legendary Patrol owner desires!


Rare. strong running. Patrol with all the options! Gets good gas mileage (18-20 mpg) with power from the TD42 factory Nissan Diesel engine. This truck turns eyes everywhere. and is fun to drive! The body is pretty clean & straight. with only a couple small scratches and flaws here and there. Rare options include factory full-floating rear axle. PTO driven winch. & the high “Safari” roof.  The truck has brand new 31x10. 50R15 Cooper Discoverer AT-3 All-Terrain tires with extra sipes for snow.  This truck also has AC that blows nice and cold and a great heating system.


The truck came with dual batteries. which both were replaced less than 6 months ago. and has a 24-volt electrical system with a 24-12 volt converter to run any common 12-volt accessory from the cigarette lighter plug or via a hardwired connection. It is right hand drive as it was made for the Japanese market. extremely fun to drive and will only take the average driver a few spins to handle it like a professional!


Recent maintenance includes all fluids checked and replaced with new. 2 brand new Deka batteries. all carpet and upholstery steam cleaned. new diesel fuel filter. The engine is in great mechanical condition with no leaks or issues. The body is clean and straight and has the original two-tone factory paint. Please contact me if you would like any more detailed pictures of the interior. body or undercarriage.


This vehicle is 100% legally imported. and is currently titled and licensed in Colorado. I have all the paperwork and documentation for registration in another state. and can assist with the process for the new owner as necessary.


Thanks for looking at this beautiful truck. If you have any questions feel free to ask
