Throwback Thursday: this GQ Patrol Cab Chassis is so, so mint!

How’s this for a mint GQ Patrol Cab Chassis for Throwback Thursday?! Currently advertised on Carsales, this second-owner GQ has a super-low 134,000km on the odo and it has been fully restored.

Powered by Nissan’s venerable TD42 4.2L inline six-cylinder diesel donk, this example is fitted with a factory turbo, so it’ll make a lot more grunt than the 85kW of power and 264Nm of torque than the naturally aspirated variant could muster when it came out of the Nissan factory back in the 90s. And the fact it’s red will no doubt help in the performance stakes as well. The gearbox is a five-speed manual and the leaf-sprung GQ Patrol Cab Chassis has a two-speed transfer case with a simple part-time 4×4 system and manually locking front hubs.

As well as a colour-matched bull bar, side rails and steps, the Patrol sports period white Sunraysia-style steel wheels, a winch up front, LED driving lights and a steel tray with tool boxes on each side. And check out the tray’s immaculate polished hardwood timber floor. According to the Patrol’s owner Tony this example also has “power steering and limited slip diff (LSD), air conditioning… CB radio, new Kenwood sound system and a tow bar.”

Tony says the Patrol has only been driven a handful of times in the past couple of years and it has full NSW rego until May 2021, so New South Welshmen could just jump in and enjoy it straight away.

Tony is asking $36k for the GQ Patrol and states “serious buyers only and no ridiculous offers please”. If you’re keen on this beast you can check it out on Carsales.
