** Following write-up was taken from www.60Patrol.com. **

There were just over 2600 Patrols imported to he USA between 1961 and 1969, and only 1641 were hard tops. The 60 series Patrol was produced from 1960 through 1980, and a G61 model with the same body style in a soft top model only was produced from 1980 to 1982. The Patrol has been very popular in many countries around the world including Australia, Colombia and Saudi Arabia. There was a military version called Jonga independently produced in India for the Indian army. The Patrol was Datsun/Nissan’s competition to the Toyota Land Cruiser FJ40, the Land Rover, Jeep and early Broncos.

As hard as this is to do, I find it necessary to let go of one of my prize possessions. Patrols have been my passion and hobby for many years. You can learn more about the Patrol on the most comprehensive forum for the vintage Patrols on the Internet: www.60Patrol.com.
