With FJ40 prices hovering around bluefin tuna levels of ridiculousness, overlooked alternatives start to look even more attractive. Why pay crazy money when you can get all the thrills for a quarter of the bills. Find this 1966 Nissan Patrol for sale in Charleston, SC for $6,400 via craigslist.
The G60 (allegedly no relation to the Corrado) Patrol was sold in the US of A in fairly limited numbers through Datsun dealers. Salesmen must’ve had some sort of routine memorized to explain why everything else was a Datsun while the Patrol bore different nomenclature altogether. With a removable top just like the Blazer, Bronco, and ‘Cruiser, the Patrol offered open cabin safari surveillance.
As you’d expect, the interior accouterments are befitting of a jungle exploration rig. Flat floors and a metal dash complete the ‘hose me out’ motif. Though utilitarian, the gauge placement and steering wheel style is oddly attractive.
