Default Just paid our first subscription!!!!

We just coughed up the tenner but we wonder if we have the only T1 here??
As we live in Portugal it is not considered very old and is in remarkable condition considering it's age!!!!

Hi and welcome....

We had a T1 but struggled to get parts for it in the UK, so it ended up being scrapped.

Shame, as it was a lovely car, and my wife loved it, but it had not received the TLC it should have had before we got it, and like all UK Nissans, was being eaten by the dreaded tin worm. It had sat in a marshy field behind a barn unused for 3 years near the Sussex coast, before we got it, so between the damp coming up from the marsh, and the sea salt in the air, the underside was particularly bad on some parts, and we just could not source some of the mechanics at a reasonable price in the UK.

Engine wise, they are pretty much exactly the same as the early Mavericks, Minstrals and the Mk1 non inter-cooled Terrano11's, and while they have a lot of bells and whistles, like electric adjustable suspension, heated seats, electric windows/mirrors, remote boot opening, and many other fun gadgets, the engine electrics are fairly simple and basic. Our one definitely did not have any form of NATS as the ignition key was just a metal key, with nowhere for any extra electronics to be hidden, but our one did have an after market immobiliser/alarm fitted in Japan, which was a royal pain in the backside.

Fortunately (for me), Unfortunately (for you), I never needed to looked at the ignition switch, so can't compare it to the Terrano11, but since most of the bits on it were a forerunner it might be worth taking some pictures of yours, and someone like Rick (Solarman) might be able to compare it to one of his scrappers to see if they look the same.

Anyone know if the t 1 was sold in UK? They seem very rare
Looking at u-tube there seems to be a lot around Europe--- I think they were also made in Spain????
Ours was bought new in Germany and imported at 2/3 years old I think??
The underneath is in staggering condition considering it's ages------ I think it was made in 1988/9 not sure???, Everything mechanical seems in like new condition but the inside needs a little help!!!
Anyone know if early Pathfinder is the same????

Talking Welcome to our Community

The T1 is getting on a bit to survive many winters here in the UK, I guess a lot of the mechanicals will be similar though.

Our previous Terrano r3mR was in sparkling condition underneath when we bought her having only been in the UK a few years. One salty winter managed to rot a rear cross member. I did a proper underbody protection on her after that as I have with our Jeeps.

Although I like the Jeep WK Grand Cherokee I am being quite unfaithful as I pretend its a Patrol when I drive her. Its a sort of mental vehicle adultery .lol

We brought a mint Dodge Ram from USA and during the first weeks in UK I could see the affects from the salt on the roads, that spring I pressure washed it on a friends pit and used his compressor to put 3gallons of waxoyl under it -- when we sold it a few years later it was still like new underneath!!!!!
Our old T1 has spent virtually all it's life in Portugal away from salt on roads or sea!!!
The result is incredible
