Dinosaur: 1973 Nissan Patrol 4X4
The second generation of the Nissan Patrol was built from 1959 through 1980…and for a few years (1962-1969) it was the only vehicle you could get with a Nissan badge in the USA (the other Nissans were badged as Datsun). The Patrol was a decidedly old school piece of moving art that used an ancient 4.0 liter Nissan P-series inline-6 and today’s Patrol has a functioning crank starter. Find this 1973 Nissan Patrol 4X4 offered for $19,100 in Milwaukee, WI via facecrank startbook. Tip from John W.

A Nissan Patrol with Toyota 4runner/PU wheels? Oh the humanity. 🙂
The engine is a license built Graham-Paige design from back before Graham-Paige morphed into Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall, so there is that.
This sure looks nice.
The Patrol is the result you get if you put a request into an AI image generator using a vintage Land Rover and a vintage Land Cruiser as references. Very cool and familiar but also somewhat awkward and odd.
Looking at the tasteful seats and front bumper, I can guess it is a Colombian import, slow, cool to look at, but a bear to drive.
