Description for Nissan Other 1965

1965 NISSAN PATROL. SUPER RARE TRUCK. THIS PARTICULAR ONE IS EXTRA RARE BECAUSE IT HAS A DRIVERS SIDE MOUNT SPARE TIRE CARRIER AND FOLD DOWN TAILGATE. VERY ORIGINAL AND NOT MODIFIED. WAS FOUND IN A BARN A FEW YEARS AGO BY PREVIOUS OWNER. HE STATED IT WAS THERE FOR 25+ YEARS. LAST DATE OF REGISTRATION WAS 1981. I HAVE THE LAST REGISTRATION WHICH IN THE GLOVE BOX. I HAVE NOT REGISTERED IT PERSONALLY SO IT STILL HAS THE TITLE DATED 1981. I PURCHASED WITH THE INTENT TO RESTORE, OWEVER, HE USUAL STORY, OO MANY PROJECTS AND NOT ENOUGH SPACE.
OVERALL THE TRUCK IS SOLID. ONLY SURFACE RUST ON THE FRAME. BODY IS SOLID. THERE HAS BEEN SOME BODY WORK DONE THIS TRUCK IN THE PAST, OWEVER, HERE IS STILL A LOT OF METAL WHERE WORK WAS DONE. THE SIDE VENTS WERE "BONDOED" OVER, UT THE SCREENS AND HINGES ARE STILL THERE ON THE INSIDE. ALL OF THE ORIGINAL SOFT TOP FRAME IS THERE AND IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. ALOT OF THE ORIGINAL COATING IS STILL ON THERE.
AS FOR THE INTERIOR, HE ORIGINAL FRONT SEAT FRAMES ARE IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. THE REAR JUMP SEAT FRAMES ARE ALSO IN EXCELLENT SHAPE. FLOOR BOARDS WILL NEED SOME WORK HOWEVER ARE VERY MUCH IN TACT. ALL OF THE GAUGES AND SWITCHES ARE THERE. AS WITH AGE, HE SHIFTER BOOTS, EATS COVERS, ND WINDOW SEALS WILL NEED ATTENTION.
REGARDING THE ENGINE, HE PREVIOUS OWNER TOLD ME THIS WOULD START BY POPPING THE CLUTCH. I DID NOT ATTEMPT THAT. I DID SOAK THE CYLINDERS WITH MYSTERY OIL AND THE ENGINE TURNS FREELY WITH A WRENCH BY HAND. THE ONLY THING THAT IS MISSING TO MY KNOWLEDGE IS THE STARTER WHICH I HAVE SEARCHED AROUND AND CAN PROVIDE INFO ON PURCHASING ONE. THE RADIATOR WAS BONE DRY. I PULLED THE HOSES OFF AND EVERYTHING LOOKS OK. THE GAS TANK WAS REMOVED AND WILL NEED TO BE REPLACED OR RESTORED. THE SKID PLATE IS IN TACT AND IN SOLID.
THIS IS THE PERFECT RESTORATION CANDIDATE. HAS ALL OF THE HARD TO FIND PARTS. FEEL FREE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS. ILL DO MY BEST TO ANSWER THEM ACCURATELY. WILL ALSO INCLUDE A SERVICE MANUAL I DOWNLOADED AND PRINTED. GOOD LUCK AND HAPPY BIDDING!
