1982 Nissan Patrol LG61 Charlotte, NC **SOLD**

• CATEGORIES: Other 4x4s

UPDATE: **SOLD** Was $23,999.

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

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.”

Wally Cohn — Jeep King?

UPDATE 3: There are some broken links, so I’ll need to spend some time and clean up this post.

UPDATE 2: Daniel Strohl over at Hemmings provided a solid background update about Wally Cohn.

“Born in 1924 in Germany, his father and stepmother sent him to the Chicago area in 1937 both to live with family and to escape the increasingly anti-Semitic mood in Germany. After Kristallnacht, his older brother Herman, his father Siegfried, and his stepmother joined him in Chicago. Walter flew 30 missions for the U.S. Army Air Corps as a bombardier during the war, earning a Distinguished Flying Cross and a Bronze Star and rising at least to the rank of Sergeant. After the war, he served as a member of the chief justice’s staff during the war crimes trials in Nuremberg, then returned to the United States and founded W&W Foreign Auto Parts in Blue Island, Illinois.”

UPDATE:  A reader named Clint just determined what type of vehicle Wally was using — A 1936-1940 Opel Olympia.  Here are two links to images:  Link 1 & Link 2. Thanks Clint!

ORIGINAL POST published in 2010:  I ran across the images shown below and others.  I didn’t think much of them until I looked more closely.  It appears the builder, who I assume is Wally Cohn, has merged a 1936-1940 Opel Olympia with a MB to create, arguably, the first Jeepster-like vehicle, except it is four wheel drive. The ‘Wally’ appears to use the entire jeep drive train.  If you look in back, you’ll even see this car can tow a trailer!

Who is Wally Cohn? I have no idea. I can’t seem to find anything about him, other than his name was Wally Cohn and he was nicknamed the Jeep King by photographer Walter Sanders.

Photographer Walter (Wally) Sanders worked for Life Magazine from 1944 to 1961. After growing up and leaving Germany for the US in 1937, he returned in early 1946 and lived the rest of his life in Europe, mostly in Munich. You can learn more about his biography here.

Because Walter was in Europe during December of 1946, and because these photos were snapped during that month, and because of Wally’s uniform (which Bob noted is an Army Airforce Uniform), I have concluded that Wally Cohn was a member of the armed services trying to merge cars and jeeps into a Wally vehicle of some kind (note the name Wally is displayed prominently on the dash in one of the pics).

This would be a great collector’s item — and a cool jeep too!
