willys-whippet-model-96

“Vintage – Willys Whippet Model 96 – Vehicle has been stored in a barn for over 70 yrs as it was being worked on. From history the vehicle started out as a Whippet sedan and was converted to a light truck back in the day. In 1928 no true trucks were manufactured so vehicles were converted for use as light trucks. The vehicle has been started but not currently. This vehicle has just about every part needed for proper restoration but just needs loving hands and patience’s. There are extra parts and manuals. Extra parts include doors, handles, tires, wheels, transmission, generator, brake parts, clutch, radiator chrome, inside wood for doors, wood frame for windshield, spark plugs, wood for bed of truck, vinyl for seat covers and more.

“1978 Fiat Campagnola – Basically an Italian Land Rover Defender.
4 wheel drive, simple, unbreakable off road vehicle.

Clean title in hand. Purchased two years ago August 2017 from a classic car dealership. I was looking for a tough all weather, off road rig to take me on back country adventures. One that could handle all weather and terrain. Then one day I discovered the Campagnola. I met a guy in a parking lot getting into his 1979 Campagnola (different rig). Smitten with It’s unique simplicity and rugged design I approached him to inquire about it. Turns out he’s a collector and had just returned from Italy with three of them. He said he had a special model for sale with a classic car dealership. He described this 1978 as being the most authentic of the three. It was the last year for this model which has more of the original features. He shared some specs and stories of how he drove this particular rig off road in the Alps in a blizzard, up and over snowbanks was easy and the heater rocks.

1982 Nissan Patrol LG61 Charlotte, NC $23,999

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

Chuck shared this nice looking Nissan Patrol. Strangely, it has a Utah plate on the front and an NC plate on the back.

https://losangeles.craigslist.org/lac/cto/d/concord-1982-nissan-patrol-lg61-super/6909291983.html

1982-nissan-patrol-lg61-ca1 1982-nissan-patrol-lg61-ca2 1982-nissan-patrol-lg61-ca3 1982-nissan-patrol-lg61-ca4

“The Nissan Patrol’s legend was shaped by drivers in some of the world’s most inhospitable places. It quickly built its reputation as a tough, reliable and innovative addition to the motoring industry. This real man’s truck became iconic, lauded for its tough nature and undying loyalty to those who drove it.

This is one truck that people will stop, turn around and come back to look at it. They have never seen one in their life. I get more reactions from this truck than from my two previous Toyota Land Cruisers – FJ40 and FJ43. One thing I can say for sure is that the build quality and the ride are way better than the Toyota FJ40. The Nissan Patrol was a very expensive truck back when it came out, more expensive than the Toyota.

This particular truck is a very rare long wheel base version that never came to the States, with a 4-speed manual transmission (a lot only came with 3-speed). The manual steering is superb compared to the FJ40; it is very easy to maneuver this truck. The 4×4 works great.

The odometer currently reads 66,000 kms or 41,000 miles, but it probably turned over once, so I woud assume it has 166,000 kms or 103,000 miles. This classic 4×4 starts up with the first turn of the key and purrs like a kitten. The 4.0L inline 6-cylinder engine is smoother and stronger than the competition. This vehicle was legally imported from South America.”
