We are selling our Nissan Patrol 4x4 fully equipped and functional for a 2 persons roadtrip, on any type of roads.
All the preparation is visible on our blog <snip>and the roads he took.
The goal was to keep it once we arrive in Rio de Janeiro (we start a new life after 4 months and 25,000km on the road), but the importation of a used vehicle is simply forbidden or at least impossible in Brazil, so change of plan against heart, we sell it, and we'll find a replacement car in Rio ... another project.
Note that we bought it from a very good mechanic, his personal vehicle, it had been completely revised and certified by another mechanic before leaving to avoid unpleasant surprises, but we did not have much to do, the engine is indestructible. In the meantime it has traveled 25 000km so his condition is still impeccable, he is ready to hit the road tomorrow and will take you on any field.
This is a Spanish model of Patrol, prepared for the African raids by the Ebro brand, so it is extended and enhanced, it allowed us to install a double bed and large storages lockers but it is a patrol, the model 260.
Model 1998 purchased at 135000 km (see photo on the blog), it has traveled since 25000km more.
6 cylindres 2,8LD atmospheric engine.
Timing belt changed before leaving.
Draining and update filters (air / gazoile / oil).
Consumption: Highway 11 to 13l / 100 (I personally do not exceed too 100 / 110km / h in order not to consume as it is the main budget of a roadtrip).
No electronics in the engine, which means that if you ever have a problem, any mechanic can help you out, and there is a good one in every village you pass through here. Note that Nissan is widespread in South America, including Patrol.
Hard rack amenities: (see all that you want to keep with the price negotiations)
