Peter, if you combine the numbers of all three intended GTG's it will still not make 60 in total...ha...ha...let alone if you try to get them together on one dune inside SA. I have to play Patrol-Patrol with my Cruiser to take the number of Patrols getting together up to 10 at De Wildt in a few weeks time.

Grappies op 'n stokkie. It is noteable that Patrol and Cruiser are very much the same age. Once again it is sad to imagine how many Patrols could have roamed the African continent if Nissan were up to the required marketing task.
Patrol fan!

Hello JG

I have no doubt it would be difficult to get 60 patrols into one photo, but that would be great if we could, whether it be on a dune or not. However I am hoping it would be easier, as it is not a whole weekend, and the reason for splitting it is to make it easier for a lot of guys to attend as most people will be relatively close to one of the venues.

A few years ago the Lotus Register of SA were able to get more than 100 Lotuses on the skidpan at Kyalami for a group photo, and considering the number of Patrols compared to the number of Lotuses running around we should almost be ashamed of ourselves if we cannot do this?

Here is some history:

First Generation (4W60 Series 1951 – 1960)
Second Generation (60 Series 1960 – 1980)
Third Generation (160 Series 1980 – 1985; 161 Series 1985 – 1987)
Fourth Generation (Y60 Series 1987 – 1997)
Fifth Generation (Y61 Series 1997 – Current)
Sixth Generation (Y62 Series 2010 - )

The Nissan Patrol is a four-wheel drive vehicle manufactured by Nissan in Japan since 1951. In Japan since 1980, it has been known as the Nissan Safari. The Patrol is available in Australasia, Central and South America, South Africa, parts of Southeast Asia and Western Europe as well as Iran and the Middle East.
The Patrol has been available as either a short-wheelbase (SWB) three-door or a long-wheelbase (LWB) five-door chassis. The LWB version has also been offered in utility and cab chassis variants alongside the wagon.
The Patrol was always regarded as a tough 4X4 in Australia, Middle East, Europe and the Caribbean. Its stronghold is the Middle East, Australia, New Zealand, Japan and other European Countries.

In September 1951 the 4W60 was introduced. The overall styling was similar to the Willys Jeep. The 4W60 used the 75 hp 3.7L Nissan NAK engine from the Nissan 290 bus, but with part-time 4-wheel drive and a 4-speed manual transmission. The grille had a pressed-steel Nissan badge. A 4W70 Carrier-based wagon was available. The 4W60 was replaced with the 4W61 in August 1955.
The 4W61 was introduced in August 1955. The 4W61 was similar to the 4W60 with the exception of the grille (with some chrome bars), a one-piece windshield that sits further back when folded, chrome strips on the hood, and unequal sized seats (passenger's side is wider than the driver's). The other big change is the engine. The 4W61 was powered by the new 3.7L Nissan NB engine, producing 92 hp, and later was powered by the 105 hp 4.0L Nissan NC engine. The grille badge was chrome and red and said "NISSAN". In October 1958, the 4W61 was discontinued and replaced with the 4W65.
In October 1958 the 4W65 Patrol was introduced. The 4W65 was similar to the 4W61 except for the grille, which now had all chrome bars and redesigned front fenders and hood. A "NISSAN" badge was on the grille, and "Patrol" badges were added on the sides of the hood. An 8-seater hardtop wagon, the WG4W65, was available. The short-lived 4W66 Patrol was introduced in December 1959. The only change is that the 4W66 was powered by the 125 hp 4.0L P40 engine. The 4W66 was discontinued in June 1960.

The Y60 was radically different mechanically from its predecessors as it now had coil spring suspension, the rear axle being on a 5 link setup. Most models had a rear Limited slip differential and some variants had a vacuum operated manual rear differential lock. The model now had rear disc brakes and some Y60s even had a PTO-driven front-mounted winch.

The second generation Y60 (GQ) platform is still manufactured as a military vehicle in the countries of Asia and the Middle East, and various versions of the Patrol are widely used by United Nations agencies. These Y60 models are produced alongside the current Y61.

Y61 (GU) models first appeared in 1997, available in 4.5L petrol and 2.8L Turbo Diesel, 3.0L Turbo Diesel, 4.2L diesel, 4.2L Turbo Diesel, 4.2L Turbo Diesel Intercooler variants.
The underbody hardware (diffs, CVs etc.) were significantly strengthened and are considered to be the strongest components fitted to any production 4WD. Comfort levels were also increased over GQ, especially in the seating and NVH areas.
In 2004 a significant facelift model was released, with new headlights, box flares on each guard, and larger tail lights. That same year, Nissan stopped selling the Safari in Japan due to poor sales. Nissan also makes a pickup version of the Y61 series with two- and four-door variations. Although a new model has been launched, this Y61 series will still sell for off-road enthusiasts but only with few options as a basic trim.
Its TB48DE engine is very famous and popular among UAE tuners, where it could be easily modified and upgraded to levels where it could beat some supercars produced by Lamborghini, Ferrari, Nissan and other supercar producers. In one occasion a TB48DE engine was fully modified and was able to reach over 2,000 hp (1,491 kW) for the sand hills challenges.
The Fifth Generation Patrol is still in production alongside the new Sixth Generation Patrol in many markets around the world, such as Australia, which have not yet received the new Sixth Gen model. It is probably that the Fifth Generation Patrol may still receive an update with a new diesel powerplant to allow the model to remain in production as a cheaper variant of the Patrol for some time still to come.

Hi Peter,

We should arrange a GTG for all Patrols. We could meet half way for everybody. Lets get some out of the box ideas and make this happen. :goodpost: :goodpost: :goodpost: :goodpost: :goodpost:

G-man
I have to disagree with your 5 tally - the Cape Patrol fraternity has grown nicely over the past 2 years.
I am convinced we should be able to muster at least 10 - 20 Patrols somewhere around CT - maybe on Bloubergstrand with Table mountain in the backdrop?

Hands up from CT those that are willing to "pose" next to their Patrols ...

Saltman is in ...
