1995 Nissan D21 Pickup

Available for: $22,495

Stock #5282

Nissan's storied history of building trucks goes back 70 years, and this 1995 is one of the brand's most iconic designs. Powered by a TD27 diesel engine and underpinned by a trusty 4x4 system, this rugged pickup is efficient and capable. The body is in good shape and is accented by a set of 15" 4x4 Engineering Urban Sports alloy wheels and a factory roll bar. A fresh coat of one-off Everglade Green turns heads, and there are only a few minor imperfections to note. New Raptor bedliner has been applied as well, to complete the aesthetic. Recently serviced, this Quad Cab model is rare, unique, and practical. For those looking for a special JDM truck, this 170k verified and documented mileage example is a certified Japanese Classic and it won't last long!

Unlike American versions, this cabin is much more spacious thanks to four full-size doors. The Quad Cab was actually styled in Nissan's San Diego design studio, so we feel like this is a homecoming of sorts. The dash is in good shape and lacks any cracking or weather-related distortion. A set of aftermarket cup holders were added at some point in Japan so you can actually enjoy a beverage while commuting, talking on the phone, and shifting. Kidding aside, they are useful as is the functional OEM audio and factory climate control system. Manual locks and windows are two fewer things to break, and add to the analog, classic feel. Cold A/C is on hand for next year, and the heat works like a charm if this is used in winter. The gray upholstery is in above-average condition and lacks any major rips, stains, or tears. There is room for five total, and the legroom in the back is better than any truck we have sold to date. The carpets, headliner, and door cards have withstood major wear and tear over the years, and still look good to this day. That's not to say everything is perfect inside, as the radio bezel is cracked and the LCD display on the radio is on its way out. Still, at 25 years old, this thing has held up quite well!

The rugged D21 platform is simple and well built. Unlike new vehicles, its design is as analog and straightforward as it gets. The 2.7L is fresh off an oil and filter service and starts up promptly thanks to a new 12v battery. The engine sips fuel, and runs well, although admittedly it's not going to win you any drag races. A new engine air filter was installed in our shop and the TD27 now breathes freely. The five-speed manual gearbox makes good use of the four-cylinders torque curve and sends power to either two or four wheels depending on the driver's needs. It shifts without a hitch or a grind to mention. If the going gets tough, a low-range setting is available through the selective transfer case and allows traversing any loose surfaces in a steady, more manageable fashion. The suspension is capable of handling the rigors of daily use and abuse, and the brakes are confident. New shocks were installed at all four corners by one of our trained techs, which is the reason why she drives so well. The power steering is light and easy to articulate and the wheels all have new Falken rolling stock mounted and balanced. The 30" all-terrain tires look aggressive and will deliver tens of thousands of miles of year-round grip to come.
