1984 Datsun/Nissan 720 King Cab truck conversion completed in 2021 by California restoration company JNH Classics. To see the complete build, there’s a YouTube 15 part series: Go to YouTube and search “JNH Classics Bushmaster”
In 1984 and 1985 Nissan needed an SUV to compete with Toyota’s 4Runner. Before the Pathfinder could be brought to market, Nissan contracted with custom California car builder Matrix3 who took new Nissan 720 King Cab 4×4 trucks, welded the bed to the cab, added a custon fitted fiberglass roof and interior. The result was called the “Bushmaster” and were available for order directly from Nissan dealers. They are extremely rare and while no exact build numbers are available, seller has only seen one other one.
JNH classics spent over a year bringing this one back to life and it was brought to Virginia earlier this year. The paint is original! Zero rust. Here’s a brief overview of what was replaced or restored/rebuilt… and you can watch the actual build online.
