• Well-maintained and looking highly original, this Nissan Patrol is a superb example of the marque’s classic 4x4.
  • It is powered by a 2.8-litre straight-six motor coupled to a four-speed manual transmission.
  • From 1983, this is the updated version of the third generation car, featuring upgraded front suspension and revised front end, headlights and four-speed gearbox.


  • The car remains highly original, with no mechanical modifications.
  • It is finished in Orange over original beige vinyl upholstery, and rides on 15-inch steel wheels.
  • The cabin is fitted with air-conditioning and Pioneer speakers, and the tailgate has a wood panel guard.
  • Sold with the original owner’s manual and tools.


  • The bodywork and paint is in good condition for its age, with only minor flaws around the finish and some wear to the exterior trims. These are well documented in the gallery, but in particular there are blemishes around the tailgate and rear lights, and a small gouge in the A-pillar at the bottom of the windscreen on the passenger side.
  • Inside, the car has been very well preserved, with more noticeable wear and patina in high-use areas like the steering wheel rim and boot area, but it presents in very good condition.
  • The Patrol is mechanically sound, and all electronics, controls and gauges work as they should.
  • A roadworthiness inspection was carried out on 13 May 2021 and the car passed with no warnings.


  • Mastertouch Automotive in Marrickville, Sydney, performed a service on the car in March 2021 at 179,453 km. All oils were replaced, as were the front brake pads. The front and rear leaf spring tie rods, steering link and drag link were all serviced.


This 1983 Nissan Patrol is a testament to the marque’s famous build quality and mechanical reliability. Remaining highly original, it presents very well for its age, and will no doubt put a nostalgic smile on its next owner’s face whenever they get behind the wheel.
