1993 Nissan Condor 50 Tow Truck
Available for: $39,995
Japanese tow rigs have been the envy of car enthusiasts the world over. For some reason, no American manufacturer seems to realize that there are vehicles on the road besides Hummers and lifted trucks. Luckily Japanese engineers don't share the same view as American tow truck engineers and realized not every vehicle is built to drive up a 45-degree plane. This small and easily maneuverable 1993 Nissan Condor hauler boasts the exceptionally desirable, lay flat tray option. This allows the loading tray to lay completely flat on the ground so loading a properly low vehicle is a breeze. This makes an ideal candidate for a shop truck to take care of customers' low vehicles or a fantastic tow rig for track days. This truck can handle it quickly, conveniently, and with style. At only 141K verified miles, this unique ride would be a useful marketing truck for any tow company as it turns heads everywhere it goes.
The exterior is in great condition for a work truck. It, of course, has been used and shows wear from normal tow truck duties. However, the paint is in excellent condition and the loading tray we refinished with a more proper Bedliner to maintain its durability in the coming years. Additionally, the headlights have also been upgraded to the later model Condor lights, giving the front of the truck a much more modern and updated look. The white and black panda exterior theme looks great and the cab is a blank canvas, ready for the livery of your choosing!
Inside, is exactly what you would expect from a work truck with a few nice perks. Visibility is impressive as a cab-over design, and the cockpit is roomy. An extra window in the passenger footwell assists in safe lane changes and nighttime visibility is improved with an eye-catching set of amber fogs. The A/C blows extremely cold and makes for a welcome relief after loading up a car in the heat. The power windows also function properly and a slew of 12V power sources have been added to make sure all of your devices always have a full charge. If you prefer more natural ventilation, a roof vent can be manually opened and supplies a fair volume of air to the cockpit. The seats do have some discoloration from normal use, but no heavy wear, rips, or tears. The vinyl is durable and should withstand the rigors of daily use just fine. The center seat can drop down, doubles as a writing surface, and includes additional storage. A Panasonic head unit has also been added but you may want to upgrade to a more modern head unit with Bluetooth, as this unit is no longer operational. Already wired, a forward-facing dash cam works properly and should protect this rig's operation from the old swoop and squat! The dash is in good shape and lacks any major cracks or age-related distortion. The door cards are also in surprisingly good shape and note only a few minor scuffs. Overall a tidy interior that has been well kept for a work truck.
Mechanically this Nissan Condor is powered by an FD46 4 cylinder diesel mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The engine starts up quickly and idles appropriately. Benefitting from a fresh oil and filter service, she doesn't require another service for at least 3K miles. Adittedly, you won't win any races, but the Condor does maintain highway speeds without much of an issue unless you are going uphill like most any truck. The power steering works nicely, and the brakes feel confident handling daily duties, even while laden with cargo. Additionally, a bed-mounted PTO driven which is fully functional and will easily pull a disabled vehicle up quickly and easily.
