1983 Patrol / Safari

Post by JacoSchoeman » 08 Mar 2016 17:44

Hello guys / girls

Last week I was fortunate enough to land a great deal on a 1983 Nissan Patrol (Datsun Safari according to the reg docs...) The vehicle is in fair condition, and I have a few little bumps and bruises to fix, but seeing that the car is the same age as I am, I know that bumps and bruises will come with age... hehe

The motor is still original (I think) as it is straight 6, with a 4 speed gearbox. I spoke to a very friendly gentleman over the weekend that stays in Warmbad area from this forum, sorry but the name slipped passed me. He informed me that the vehicle is imported due to the fact that it has two front seats with middle console, and not the single seat. Guess it came from Aus probably?

Other than that, I am not too sure what more to say about the vehicle. What I do need help with urgently, is finding a front window and tail light covers. The two headlights are also different in look, so if possible, a new headlight. Any idea where to start looking?

Welkom Jaco!!! :salute: :salute: :salute:

Ek bly ook in Kempton maar is nou op vakansie in Britannia Bay.

Ek het die 1983 Safari bakkie en my seun het ook die 1983 Safari stasiewa en ek het ook 'n extra conopy wat ek nog van ontslae kan raak.

Ek sal ook vir jou die Safari se Service Manual op 'n CD kan gee.

Dankie vir die "warm werlcome" en ja, dit was Dawid met wie ek gepraat het. Ek sal dan weer met hom kontak maak. Ek sal ook bietjie fotos opsit.

Baie dankie!!! Dit sal great wees as jy van vakansie af kom dat ons dalk bymekaar kan kom. Ek het nodig dat iemand wat bietjie ken die voertuig 'n lekker kyk gee.

Myne het die square voorlig. Lyk baie na die Nissan champ ligte, so miskien sal hulle pas?
