We named this truck Indigo for his unique smokey blue paint. Very sharp color contrasted with an as new black soft top.
Only approximately 2000 Nissan Patrols came to the USA in the 1960's. There are only a handful of these medium wheelbase trucks in the USA and very few soft tops. This Nissan Patrol is a direct competitor to the Toyota Land Cruiser FJ43 medium wheelbase model. The Toyota FJ43 models have enjoyed a great following at the classic car auctions with sales in the $40. 00 to $77. 00 range.
My company. Volcan 4x4. LLC. is currently importing a 1981 Toyota FJ43 from Colombia and I came across this rare and uniquely well preserved Nissan Patrol.
To the best of my knowledge. this is the history of this truck. Please note the FADEGAN plaque on the rear of the truck which shows that this truck was likely purchased through a cattle ranchers' cooperative. The original owner likely purchased the truck for his personal use. Trucks with the FADEGAN plaque are highly desired in Colombia where most Patrols were used for rural taxis. I have seen photos of this truck before its restoration and it was in very good conditon.
The most recent owner was a commercial airline pilot and classic car enthusiast who owned this truck for 8 years. Five years ago the owner oversaw a restoration including the rebuilding the engine and repainting the truck and installing a new top and a custom roll bar.
My company. Volcan 4x4. then spent 5 weeks completing the truck in Colombia including:
1. 5 new Maxxis Big Horn Mud Terrain Tires on original 16 inch rims2. 4 new Tokico shocks plus steering stabilizer3. New power brake booster4. Rebuilt power steering system from a 1990's Toyota Land Cruiser5. Relocated new battery to under the seat (original location)6. Oil and oil filter change7. 4 brand new drum brakes. New drums. New cylinders. New pads. 8. Complete overhaul of drivetrain including new birfields. new AVM manual locking hubs. 4 new wheel hubs. new gaskets/grease/fluids in entire 4wd system9. New exhaust system with period correct Nissan muffler10. One week dent removal. paint touch up. 3 stage Maguiars polish. new tail lamp covers and other detail items
Note the interior is in very good condition with custom floor mats and original 35 year old snap in Nissan floor mats. Note custom spare tire cover.
Favorite features on this truck include the unique paint. the dash air vents. the three windshield wipers. the manual crank start. and ignition key in the dash.
Best feature is the powerful Nissan 4. 0 liter straight six. Having owned Toyota Land Cruisers. I am very impressed with the smoothness and power of this Nissan six. It has more torque than Toyota's famed 2F and really pulls the truck up the Colombian mountains! Note this truck has a 3 speed manual with non synchronized first gear. The truck pulls from low speeds in 2nd gear. The transmission shifts perfectly.
If you are looking for a unique 4x4 to take 9 of your friends to the beach or the mountains this is your truck.
To address some of the reservations regarding parts sourcing for classic Nissan Patrols I offer the following. 35 year old trucks will always need maintenance and repairs. In this case the truck has been thoroughly restored and recently reviewed. I have access to nearly all the parts needed in Colombia. Also nearly all parts are available via ebay parts specialists in Australia.
Truck to be tagged in Florida and available to take delivery in Tampa. FL area in April. I am familiar with the process as I recently imported a 1983 FJ40 which I sold at Mecum Auctions in Orlando.
Emissions regulations are to be the Buyer's responsibility. Truck meets the FL exemption for emissions. Truck has no heat or AC. Ask about sources for this.
A $5000 non-refundable deposit wired to Volcan 4x4. LLC Florida bank account is required to reserve the truck at the agreed price. Volcan 4x4. LLC was formed with the goal of importing high quality unique 4x4 Left Hand Drive trucks from Colombia.
More photos and videos of this beautiful truck can be seen at Facebook. com/volcan4x4 and volcan4x4 channel on youtube.

March 9. 2014. Just drove the truck up local Colombian mountain road 5000 feet elevation to 7000 feet in 45 minutes. This road is notorious for overheating older cars and Nissan performed perfectly. DId a 3 hour round trip drive on curvy mountain roads up and down and truck's power steering. new power brakes and brakes were perfect. The Nissan motor really pulls up the mountains. I was able to do 50 mph and the mud terrains were quiet and stable in the curves. Thanks
