The die-cast car in question is the 1971 Datsun Bluebird Wagon known as JNC Surf Patrol, a beach cruiser that’s rooted in the automaker’s heritage. For sandy passengers, the five-seat Titan Surfcamp is equipped with wetsuit-inspired seat covers and heavy-duty rubber floor mats. Those who feel like the heat is getting too much, the built-in awning and 125-quart cooler are just what the doctor ordered.
“In the summer, beach parking lots are full of trucks hauling surfboards, fishing rods, boats and campers as people crave the sun and sand,” explained Fred DePerez, vice president of Nissan North America’s light commercial vehicle division. “Inspired by the vintage beach trucks of the 1960s, Titan Surfcamp is a celebration of the beach truck tradition with all the modern technologies Titan customers want when they head out to surf, shore fish and camp-out by the water.”
After its reveal at ICAT, the Titan Surfcamp will head west to the Pacific Ocean at the Supergirl Surf Pro in Oceanside, California towards the end of the month. The Surfcamp is the latest lifestyle-themed build from Nissan, joining the likes of the Titan Project Basecamp, Armada Mountain Patrol, and Smokin’ Titan.
