When the first generation Land Rovers were introduced into the Australian market, the overland crowd down under was overwhelmingly unimpressed. The Rovers broke down often, and parts took forever to arrive. Not ideal in the outback. By the time the second generation arrived, the entire brand had been written off. Australians favored Toyota Land Cruisers for the most, which we know and love here in the States, but a close second was the Nissan Patrol. The diesel engines were bulletproof, parts were widely cheap and available, and bush repairs were simple. Overall, it's just an absurdly utilitarian overlander that won't take no for an answer.
They're good on gas, incredibly capable offroad, simple to maintain, and a very rare sight here in the US. This particular example, in excellent condition and with factory AC, costs around $14,000. That price put it's titled, registered, at our shop in Austin, TX ready to be shipped to your door.
