1983 Nissan Patrol 2.8 from Australia and New Zealand
A wolf in sheep's clothing
I have installed TRX Bluebird seats for comfort as the original seats were to flat and would make me slide from side to side when in bush.
Also I have installed a 280ZX motor for its ability to rev that little bit more and a bit more punch off the line, as the original was a bit tired and thirsty.
Original head gasket blew at 310000 due to (i was told by mechanic) not changing coolant at regular intervals and it ate away at back water jacket cost to repair was $235.
Rear axle seals were worn and leaking into rear brake drum when I purchased car which meant a whole rear brake rebuild was needed, it was easy and cheap to repair.
Great all rounder for the experienced and learner.
Very difficult to get into trouble.
Original seats are like sitting on a park bench.
A lot of fun on all terrains.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
