This is a very rare 1991Nissan Patrol (Y60) with 6 cylinders 2.8 liter turbo diesel engine and 5 speed manual transmission. The title is CLEAN. Ebay did not recognize the VIN. So, I had to change it to make it work.
VIN Number:JN1WYGY60U0830990
I purchased this vehicle in July 2016 from a Polish couple who had to cut their American tour short. I drove it cross country and camped out in the top tent. It’s a tremendous vehicle and extremely fun. These cars are huge in Australia and you can find a lot of YouTube videos of them. I am selling because the engine turns over but does not start and I am not in the position to fix it, but I believe I know what the primary issue is.
A few months ago, I performed a coolant flush and replaced the fluid. I drove it around town and it worked perfect. A few weeks later, I planned a camping trip. 20 minutes into the drive, the temperature started to rise. I slowed down and tried to get to the next exit. Before I could make it, the radiator blew out and the engine lost its power and I had to tow it home. I have removed the cylinder head to inspect the head and gasket and have found no visible issues. My conclusion is that the piston rings likely need replacing. I personally do not wish to perform this work which is the reason I am selling.
The vehicle comes with a spare wheel. The tire is brand new, but there is a hairline fracture in the wheel that would need to get either welded or the wheel replaced. The driver side rear window does not go down, but I know what needs to be done to fix it. The tool chest contains a lot of different replacement parts: brake pads, fuses, fluids, tools, filter, belts, and much more. The top tent, side awning, and solar panel all work perfectly. The dash is in metric. So, the speedometer is in kph and the odometer is in km. 246,000 km = 153,000 miles.
The following text is taken from this vehicle’s listing in 2016 from when I purchased it. I am including this to show how much was done to it, display what shape the rest of the car is in despite the engine issue and tell you how much extra items and tools come with the vehicle at no additional cost.
The vehicle was rebuilt in October and November 2015 to have it in perfect condition for an 18 month expedition around North and South America. Everything that needed any repair or could potentially break during the trip was replaced or rebuilt:
- new glow plugs
- all new exhaust system
- new timing belt with rollers and tensioner
- new clutch
- turbo charger rebuilt
- fuel pump rebuilt
- alternator rebuilt
- new bearings in all wheels
- all new copper brake pipes
- new shocks
- air conditioning cleaned and refilled with new coolant
- new complete suspension bushing kit
- new oils in gear box, reduction box and both differentials
Off road gear:
- two heavy duty steel bumpers
- front 12000lbs winch,
- roof rack
- hi-lift jack
- two LED lights
- 35 inch all terrain BFG's with about 80% tread left
- snatch block, few shackles
- kinetic recovery rope 36 000lbs
Camping equipment:
- 2 person roof top tent with annex room underneath
- two plastic 20 liter (5 gallons)water tanks hanging on the back door
- extra 100Ah gel deep cycle battery which powers all the camping devices and lights. It is charged by the solar panel and also by the alternator of the car. There is also a switch to discharge the battery separately from the car battery(you will never end up in the middle of nowhere with a dead battery)
- 50W solar panel mounted on the roof
- extra LED camping lights from the back and the side of the car
- 1000 Watts 12v to 220v converter
The vehicle is 30 year sold so there are a few things that are not perfect. Bodywork needs some improvements. We didn't worry about it as this is not something that will stop us on the expedition. There are a few rust bubbles and many scratches all over the car from driving in the forest and scratching the bushes.
There is also a small dent on the corner of the hood. It's about 2 inches in diameter. The driver’s seat had a little hole and we replaced cloth on one side of the seat but it is a different shade of grey.
If you are concerned about resources or how to get parts, I can show you you everything I know and provide you a digital version of the service manual.
