Used Nissan Safari
Nissan built the first Patrols in the 1950s, and were designed for various purposes, mainly military.
The soft-top Nissan Patrol 60( two door Wheel Base 2200 mm ) and G60 ( two door Wheel Base 2500 mm ) were first sold in Australia in 1960. Left-hand drive model L60 / GL60 was sold outside of Australia. The 60 series was the first vehicle to drive across the Simpson Desert in Australia.
In 1963, the KG60 ( and KGL60 ) hard-top models were introduced.
The short wheel base version or the Utility version, has been the "Winch Challenge" competitors vehicle of choice, due to its inherent driveline strength, ease of modification, relative light weight, and popularity.
160, Y60 and Y61 series were sold in Japan under the name Nissan Safari, from 1980 to 2007.
Until 1994, Ford rebadged the Australian version of the Y60 (GQ) Patrol, as the Maverick.
In some European countries the Nissan Patrol was for a short while marketed as Ebro Patrol.
