Hey Guys,
I'm new to this 4x4 lark to be honest...just sold an Abarth 500 and picked up an 1989 Patrol 3.3 (which i think is a GQ model).



It already has a snorkel heavy duty rear and front winch bumper as well as the wellers and bf goodrichs.

It's been a work horse for the previous owner for the last 6 years so i'm gonna try and give her a little love (mechanically) and have a little fun green-laning and light offroading...it's my daily driver so i dont want to go tooooo mad...though we'll see.

In the UK these are pretty rare but i see a lot of the guys in oz love 'em!

Be prepared for lots of stupid questions :)

Cheers

Graeme

Welcome Graeme. Yep, GQ, aka Y60.

There's a lot of info here in our archives - tip, the search function to use is the 'Google Custom Search' in the big red bar up top, not the useless vBulletin search in the grey tool bar.

We have a few UK members too, and plenty of Euro and Middle East members with GQs.

You mention is a 3.3? That implies an SD33 motor with was not in the GQ (Y60) models.

Does it have coil or leaf spring suspension?

it has leaf suspension front and back and reading into it online it might be a late MQ! I must say the brown interior (as much as i love it) would have been a bit odd in the late 80s ha!
