Day I first laid eyes on it

Then finely get all parties ducks in a row 3 1/2 months later

So this thing is full of crap, rat

and old nissan

Mind you, when we went to get the Patrol we had 3 adults, 4 mounted 9.5 30 15's that I was clearing out of the shop, 100lbs of tools, and a gas can strapped to the roof of a subaru forester with 274,000 miles on it. We stopped in about 60 miles in and shed the tires on a guy building a pre-runner. Then we stopped at my buddies shop and grabbed a huge industrial battery to run the winch on the trailer. Ran up to said shop owners house, threw every thing in a 15 passenger van (at this point we are over passengered for the truck) hooked up the trailer and headed farther in to the hills. We made quick work getting it on the trailer as the property owner had a polaris ranger with a hitch to drag it out with, so we just had to drag it up the trailer with the winch.

Once I got it home I got to dig through it a little, here is some of the stuff I found
Image

Image

Image Yeah it is the original complete with name and dealer. Only 2 service stubs pulled.

Image
There is some really sad water damaged stuff in this rig

Image
There is another spare fuel pump besides that one.

Oh and it has these fender tanks in both front fenders, but I didn't get keys for them. Front door and ignition Key match, and the rear door, and gas cap are a match.

Found 2 more manuals in there, surprisingly one is in fairly good shape.

Someone loved that Patrol at one time. Some very cool finds there with the literature, and parts. I've never seen fender tanks on a Patrol, very cool. Yes, the Patrol is aptly named. Makes me shudder just thinking about the cleanup. :scared-yipes:

Nice - that Marks 5-speed looks really clean. Sometime ago, someone loved this ride...would have cost them a packet !

and those fender tanks are awesome - I've planned ways to use the wasted space in the rear arches but never thought of anything like that ! :think:

Awesome finds! Congratulations. This is certainly a very unique find. :clap: :clap: :clap:

I will open the doors and just use a pressure washer all over.

Nice find, but it must have a real funk about it? Did you make sure not to bring the rats home with you? Thats a nice tow truck you got!

Big rain today, so moved every thing into the shop.
Image

This is the carb on the truck now, and I have one of the other metal base ones too in that wheelbarrow^ but the plastic tub that it was in got water in it. The top is still free but the bottom is pretty rusty. We'll see if it is salvageable.
Image

Pulled the seats and soaped them up and left them in the rain, 90% of the rat mung came off after 4 hours and a little scrubbing. So we are supposed to get 10 days, might get them clean by then. :)
Image

So I don't know if the odometer has rolled over or not, But here are the numbers.

Have a pic of the dmv process paper work, but the hand signs are (R) rated

funny on the hand signs. you have a good solid base to start with, and I bet you figure it all out.

Nice little stash of parts there. The hand crank even has the original retainer rubbers on them. A couple of nice shiny emblems, and a couple of mystery NOS parts.

The seats should be right by the time the rain stops. You might throw some Lysol on them, too.

Could be the original mileage, or it might have turned over. I would lean more toward the turned over option. The fact that your engine isn't the original is a good indicator of that.

The carb looks like it's a VHA; it must have come over with the Marks. They weren't used on any US Patrols.

Hmmm…you've got an Aussie transmission, potentially an Aussie carb - I'd take a look underneath the rear and see if maybe it's also sporting the monster H260 diff. :think: That would be another cool surprise. ;)

You've certainly got an intriguing project there. I look forward to following your progress. :clap:
