The Original Crossover

The Original Crossover

1986 Nissan Stanza 4x4

Nissan built this unusual tall wagon version of the Stanza back in the ’80s..primarily as a roomy family hauler that could handle difficult weather conditions. With a unibody construction, it sounds much like a modern crossover – though this carries sliding rear doors like a minivan.

Someone took a hard look at that four-wheel-drive sticker on the back and decided that this Stanza could handle much more. Three inches of lift, and thirty-inch diameter off-road tires, to be precise.

Hmm. That Nissan four-cylinder was never particularly powerful. We’d have to imagine this is painfully slow trying to turn those big meats. Sadly, there are no photos of the undercarriage–heck, not one of the photos manages to get the entire car in the frame. It’s possible that no camera can manage to contain the awesomeness of this particular Stanza.

It’s on eBay in Nebraska with reserve not yet met.
