1993 Nissan 1400 Champ Deluxe

Transmission : Manual
Mileage : 147451km
Colour : Red

The 1400 Nissan bakkie can call on some old roots making its debut in the South African Market in 1971. Originally known as the Datsun 1200, evolved into on Datsun 1400 and with the Name change of the company to the Nissan 1400. Been a homegrown ½ Ton Bakkie built in Roslyn Pretoria, it has been the base workhorse of many a small company and small farmers taking their goods to market. Nissan/Datsun opened a new market segment in the small bakkie market that others like Ford, Mazda and Opel have followed by having kept in their production, so the market is now held by Nissan with the NP 200.

Now that we have given you a little background on the 1400’s History let’s tell you about our virtually untouched example, this little Fire Engine Red Nissan is a prime example of a bakkie that has been well looked after, from its clean paintwork, pristine engine bay and lightly worn cream interior, this champ is a piece of art.

As most people know the little 1400 has a heart of gold and the torquey engine will pull your little load where ever you go, matched to the perfect gearbox delivering the power to the rear wheels. Yes, by today’s standards of ½ ton bakkies being front-wheel drive, Nissan maintained the rear-wheel-drive system until its successor in the NP200.

Probably the most surprising space is the cabin of the 1400, yes, this little giant with its two seats seems to be able to swallow up any size people that you offer it and most say it’s not uncomfortable.

Then there is the loading bin that can carry up to half a ton, with this one offering you a rubber matt to protect the base and a tourney cover to protect your load, note that these would have been extras at the time.

Summarizing this champ, he is a little bakkie with a lot of soul and is looking for a friend to work with, providing years for adventures ahead. He is happy to cruise the mountain passes of Chapmans or the dusty wine farm roads of the Cape, or just to be a showpiece at your local car show drawing attention to its originality, but mostly making his new friend happy.

Do you want a piece of this Little Champ, give us a call for more information.

Price is slightly negotiable and interesting tradings all welcomed.
