10k: LadyBuggin: 1989 Nissan S-Cargo

The Nissan S-Cargo is a part of Nissan’s Pike family of vehicles that were sold new in Japan and predated the current retro-style fad (PT Cruiser, Prowler, HHR, SSR etc).   In stock form the S-Cargo looks like a washing machine with cartoon eyes, but it was a
retro styled tribute to the Citroën 2CV Fourgonnette delivery van.  Even the
name S-Cargo sounds like Escargot or snail in French.  Find this 1989 Nissan S-Cargo in Nanaimo, BC Canada currently bidding for $3,101 reserve-not-met with $9,900 Buy it Now on eBay with 6 days to go. Seller submission from Paul.

Seller Paul sent us the following note: You featured my Nissan S-Cargo earlier this year. I still have it, in fact, I am so daft that I have three!   I bought them for a business that I didn’t get around to doing. I have decided to sell two of my S-Cargo’s and keep one.   I listed my S-Cargo on ebay today, as now it is 25 years old, it can be introduced to the United States.

Behind those ladybug lips (do ladybugs even have lips?) is a 1.5 L E15S 4-cylinder gasoline engine and matching 3-speed automatic transmission donated from a Nissan Sunny.  But the engine isn’t the reason you buy this S-Cargo…

This is the reason you buy the S-Cargo.  It features an enourmous rear hatch that opens to reveal plenty of room for junk, skateboards, lady bug food, whatever you might need to haul around in retro style.
