For Sale: 1989 Nissan Pao in wOODLAND hILLS, California


Vehicle Description

The Nissan S-Cargo is a small retro commercial van manufactured by Nissan for model years 1989-1991, and originally marketed solely in Japan at their Nissan Cherry Stores. The exterior styling of the S-Cargo was inspired by the Citron 2CV Fourgonnette delivery van, and interior styling borrowed a Citron-style single-spoke steering wheel. The name was a double entendre, standing for Small Cargo and sounding like escargot, the French word for snail, which in turn is a nickname for the Citron 2CV. The S-Cargo was introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1988, was originally marketed without Nissan branding and was available by reservation only. Over its two-year production run, 8,000 were produced (variously reported as 12,000). Because of its origins at Pike Factory, (Nissans special project group), the S-Cargo along with the Nissan Figaro, Be-1 and Pao are known as Nissans Pike cars. The Red one we have here has a grey interior, automatic transmission, air conditioning, and right hand drive....yes I said right hand drive. Its engine is a naturally aspirated petrol, 1.5 liter, single overhead camshaft 4 cylinder with 2 valves per cylinder. It produces 72 bhp of power at 5600 rpm, and maximum torque of 86 lb ft at 3200 rpm. A 3 speed automatic transmission transfers the power to the wheels. In 2011, noted design critic Phil Patton, writing for the New York Times, called the Pike cars the height of postmodernism and unabashedly retro, promiscuously combining elements of the Citron 2CV, Renault 4, Mini and Fiat 500. This car has also been featured on a top 50 ugliest cars list. So if you want a really low production cargo carrier for you business that will really attract attention, this Nissan we have here at Skyway is the one for you!
