unfortunately the plastic on the horns is not in good shape. one is melted, the other is cracked. how do the holes work, strange b/c they are in the middle of the rear floor. seems like they would be in the way? are they for front or rear? i will install all new belts. has anyone seen www.gotbelts.com66LV said:mark,
the hole things are for your seat belts to hook into. the horns are stock and it looks like your plastic covers are in good shape. you could replacde them with the hella horn set up

also, what are these hole things in the rear floor boards?
step one...clean the mudwasp nests out of themLandpimp said:those are great horns, there are at least 2 OEM makers of those, they are correct for the 1960's cruisers and they sound great. One of the versions are called Elephant Horns. I would test them, if they work keep em. The OEM repair manual has detailed info on them, as well on how to adjust the "points' in the horns.
mine have the molded emblem and came off a 66. the more i disassemble this truck the more i am impressed with how well it has held up. the problem with my horns is one has melted spot on the top, which i could bondo and then paint back over, but the other has a split near the screw location. i am sure they could be fixed up some how, just have to get creative.treerootCO said:step one...clean the mudwasp nests out of them
There are two styles for the LV. One has the logo stuff stamped on top, the other has a green sticker on them. From what I can tell up to 1964/65 had the sticker, around 65/66 they changed to the molded logo type. Before '64, like 1962 maybe, the horns were almost round. The Fj25s have the round style horns.
Reproduction stickers are in the works for the 64 style horns.

pimp, pls clarify, what is the same as the fj40, bumper brackets?Landpimp said:pretty sure that yes they are, same as a fj40.
and for the horns, there are lots of them out there, all Cruisers used the same horns(same year)
not sure they were really year speicific, pretty sure my parts books show both were availible at the same time, might have been a supply issue?

as for the horns, b/c there are lots out there, are you saying i should be able to find nice ones and not have to resto these?
and do you know what that part is?
