Do you like high-mileage vehicles? How does nearly a half-million sound? The busted-off speedometer needle and somewhat jumbled odometer numerals may suggest that we're not looking at the actual mileage, but a 445,422-mile Pathfinder is plausible.
This truck has a Memphis dealership sticker and many jam-band decals. Perhaps it went on tour with the Grateful Dead from the time it was new until Jerry Garcia's cigarette-and-chili-dog-induced death in 1995, at which point the owner switched to Widespread Panic.
Widespread Panic played at nearby Red Rocks Amphitheater just before this Pathfinder showed up in a Denver junkyard's inventory, so perhaps the truck crapped out and was sent to the knacker's yard, to be replaced by a youthful 200,000-mile 4Runner.
Later on, when the SUV replaced the sedan as the most mainstream of American transportation appliance, four doors were considered an absolute necessity; starting in 1990, the Pathfinder got four doors. Back in 1989, though, plenty of truck shoppers were buying Blazers and Bronco IIs and Monteros with two doors.
This one has a genuine 1990s-style Bell South analog car phone, complete with gooseneck phone mount bolted to the transmission tunnel.
Back then, a car-phone antenna conferred so much status upon its owner than people installed fake ones from J.C. Whitney.
It's a truck... and a car.
