Nissan Patrols

Postby greenthumb » 17 Oct 2014 17:05

A headsup for any Patrol enthusiasts out there. Cap'n Crunch Auto Wrecking in Abbotsford has 3!! of them in various states of completeness. At least one looks to have complete drivetrain. Never seen one in the wild before, and didn't know they were six cylinder powered :shock:

Thanks for the Patrol tip greenthumb (Hank?). Had a fun day poking' around that little yard. Funny cuz I've known about these guys since I was little from their demo cars but have never had a reason to visit the yard - until today! There was also an older chopped 521 with a J engine in there too. All three Patrols have been sitting a long time outside and would a fair bit of rust repair. The white one seemed very complete in the engine bay. I never climbed up to check out the other two. Very cool to see these, just too bad they fell into this state. :|

Back end was missing on this one cuz someone welded on a heavy angle-iron deck thing.

This truck puzzles me. Looks completely stock except for the roof chop. Looks like it smashed & flipped or a tree fell on it….?
