Vehicle required for TV Commercial shoot

Post by ricster » 22 Apr 2016 09:39

Nissan SA has asked us ( Nissan Owners Off Road Club ) to see if we can assist with this.

Heineken will be shooting an advert in SA and are looking for one of the below vehicles for the shoot. I haven’t ever seen one of these on our roads so not sure we can source one. Have asked if they will be happy with an old Patrol and they are willing to consider another “classic” 4x4.

They will be shooting in the Cape Town area around mid-May… so not much time

If you know of one of these, or feel your Classic Patrol could fit the bill, then please send me a PM, with a photo and contact details, and I'll forward it on to Gavin at Nissan.

I have seen a couple locally, but Grips is in Kathu, so a lot closer, and his looks quite mean
