I just picked up a 67 Patrol last month. I have been in love with FJ40s forever and always planned on getting one. My wife is from Colombia and would always talk about her uncle's Patrol. I had never heard heard of a Patrol and assumed she didn't know what she was talking about. Last year I made it to a Barrett Jackson auction with some of my buddies. In between all the usual cars that frequent these shows I saw it for the first time, a Nissan Patrol. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen and I was smitten. It took me about a year to find one. My Patrol spent its life in Arizona so it is in pretty good shape rust wise. Everything else needs to be addressed. I have big plans and will definitely need this forums expertise. This is definitely going to be a project. Thank you.

Sorry, it is kind of in pieces. When I picked it up it hadn't run in 6 years. I rebuilt the carb, put in a new battery and swapped the fluids. I had it running good enough to feel comfortable proceeding so I have removed the windshield, bed, hood and all the small stuff. My plan is to remove the body so that I can have better access to work on the suspension, fuel system, brakes, and electrical from above!
