This is the rugged and robust 4x4 from that ideal era when the
smaller import trucks were nearly indestructible. That's how
Nissan's trucks earned the Hardbody name. So it's great to find
this 1991 Nissan Hardbody 4x4 so well presented, just like you
always remembered them.
This truck looks both tough and stylish. It's got a mean-looking
flat face, and there was already plenty of flare in the fender even
before Nissan's upgraded plastic pieces that help accommodate the
larger wheels on this lifted 4x4. But there's also something
attractive about the details, like the full-length pleat in the
sheetmetal that remains straight on this well-respected example.
And a respray of the correct Burgundy Metallic really gets this one
radiating in the sunshine. But as good as this looks, it was built
to be a functional pickup. You see it everywhere in useful
features, from the fog lights up front to the plastic liner
protecting the truck bed.
There's more red waiting for you inside, and it all looks as
well-presented as the exterior. The carpeting, door panels,
headliner, dash, and seat all have a nice color and a well-resected
presentation. The overall condition is a great representation of
why these earned a tough-as-nails reputation. You will find useful
features, like provisions for air conditioning (will need serving
to blow cold again) and an AM/FM/CD stereo. And the great-looking
red steering wheel has low spokes to give you a clear view to the
full gauges - including a large speedo and tach.
Under the hood is what makes these Nissans so desirable. The
2.4-liter motor was just emerging as the new quality leader in the
Nissan family. They took what was learned on the previous
generation, and created a multi-valve fuel-injected heart. The way
this one fires up reaffirms the everlasting nature of a
well-maintained Nissan truck, and the five-speed manual
transmission gives you full control. The motor's level of
originality will make this a true stunner as the market continues
to grow nostalgic for these tough Nissans. But more than just
collectable, this pickup has a lot of work and play left in it,
too. The two-speed 4x4 transfer case and Falken Wildpeak A/T tires
get you deep into nature. Plus, power steering and front disc
brakes make it easy to run around town or the trail.
This is nostalgia and ability all offered at quite an affordable
price. Don't miss your chance a one outstanding pickup. Call
