I had 1987 Nissan hardbody 4x4 that I paid $4,750 used 15k miles on it in 1989. Someone put tint windows, rims, and nice tires. I put 350k on that z24 4 banger and you couldn't kill it. That was back in days you could buy the truck new under $9k.
I loved it the 5 speed tranny you could easily drain oil and rear end kicked tail and easy to drain rear end fluid.
Great little truck man.
I bought new in 1995 4x4 hardbody x cab with automatic and that transmission was a nightmare. Off the lot brand new from Leblanc Nissan the transmission was broken. I think the radiator / transmission cooler had a failure which damaged the transmission. After that I bought Ford F 150's and never looked back. I just don't think Nissans are as well made now as they were back then. I did drive a Nissan Frontier rental truck last week and I was disappointed due to they lack the quality and poor gas mileage compared to fullsize trucks.
