A real survivor car considering its model and spec..
Interesting having the grey/black interior too. I would have imagined this would be brown - especially seeing the solid cream paint.
Great to see one of these has survived so well. Its super neat, and another car I'd love to own.
A 1984 F30 Nissan Leopard 300 Turbo Grand Edition.
Although this model Leopard - the first generation of such - was introduced four years earlier; this was the first year for this variant.
As a 1984, Nissan's VG V6 engines had only very recently been introduced. This (basic) engine powered many performance Nissans for the next 20years, albeit not in single cam, non-intercooled form!
Always funny how short a V6 looks in a N/S configuration..
How odd is that Tacho layout too? love it. .

Sitting very pretty on these period-perfect colour-matched SSR mesh, complete with caps and relatively tall tyres. Just spot-on..
Very, very, clean AE101 Black-top 20V 4A-G install. beautiful stainless extractors, and polished open throttles are just icing on the cake.
I love this whole resto-mod style; where this car has been sympathetically enhanced - modified, yet leaving the overall original look and flavour.
I love the skinny tyres.. I love the ride height..
..and I'd f'n love to take it for a drive..!

Its the second generation, red&black top, bigport, 4A-GE. Not as powerful as the later variations (of the same motor) fitted to later AE92's, but still a great engine. :)
The burgandy floormats add a little spice, but yep, otherwise simply clean!
The manual windows are interesting, since i would have figured this spec (GT) would have had power, but ehh.. i like the manuals..!
Odd, but super neat.
would make a great low-key daily.

I really like the wheel on this car too - it looks great. very similar to the full chromed 5-spoke wheel that could have been on this originally, but in wider, multi-piece, form. Unsure who makes them.
The chrome rear step is also in beaufitul shape. just fkn brilliant...
The half-leather seats look to be in really fantastic shape; and what look to be original un-trashed mats..!
..and i really like sunroofs...!
Interestingly, this size and location has stayed with all models of Pajero since. Its not too great for the driver, but hey, rear seat passengers would be all over it!
Anyway, just a brilliant example of the original Pajero. I absolutely love it.
Its a little dearer than the rest, but you'd be hard-pressed making a tired one as nice as this.
The one to buy.

Cant help but wish this thing was slightly lower; complete with some much larger, much more agressive, SSR EX-C (w/ aero covers). Too bad a complete set of EX-C's in the sizes I'm dreaming of, aren't exactly cheap..
Overall, another nice solid DR30. Ironmask in my favourite colour combo too.. ;)
