That one is a "project car"

I don't think its wort repairing.
The asking price + repair-cost (proper repair) will be much more than the trading value of the vehicle.
The whole front is F... incl. the frame.

I think this vehicle is only good as a donor vehicle...

Apparently he has got a potential buyer for 160k. :think:

:salute:

Yip!


Front end is a bit sqiff...

Doesnt match up properly, so beware.

2005 Nissan Patrol 3.0TD GL for sale

Gents, I know I've indicated my desire for the 4.8 auto, but give me an honest opinion of the above Patrol. 221 000 Km, 2005 model 3.0 TD.
I ended up contacting the dealership. It definitely sounds like the engine needs work. Lots of smoke and it is lazy. I was very surprised that they were so forthcoming. No service history, and the engine may need work. It could be nothing, but it may need a rebuild. Not what I need at this time in my life.

I've seen a few nice looking GQs, I've spotted a few 4.2 diesels, turbo and normally aspirated in good nick, but not many 4.8s. Every now and then I am tempted to grab one of the good looking GQs to play with in the mean time... But sensibility prevails. The hunt continues.

Cedric, not everyone is in love with temperamental iron woman :rolling:
Some people prefer real flammable fuel that does not require aspiration to get going!

Thanks Deon. I bought a great looking 4.8 but she was not in nearly as good condition as I thought. Some people have no respect for cars so my money for a second toy has evaporated.

But on the plus side, I am really enjoying spannering on this beast, and I have met a number of awesome forum members who have gone out of their way to help me get her up and running again.

No problem at all. After this past Saturday at Base4 I might just consider keeping her for playing. The Navara is not quite the same in serious offroad conditions.

Deon,

The Navara is most definitely not the same if off-road conditions.

My 4x4 Navara is actually my "platkar"...

My Pathfinder is also my Platkar.....

A highish 4x4 Platkar that drives quite comfortably on dirt roads!
