@Type2meister Here's the chart: Land Cruiser Frame Numbers - https://www.sor.com/catframe.SORThat vin puts it at a 11/65 build date, so its a 66. Still weird to not have a heater, but everything else jives with 66, mirror, wipers, dash all look 66.
Yes — I’m thinking when it was “refurbished” with the fabbed hard top, copper paint, 70’s van Seats and widened wheels, the windshield latches were removed and hood holes filled inI only thought LV's had hoods with no hold downs.
it doesn't look as there are any windshield stays/latches on the inside
still a nice rig
Some 40’s didnt have the hood hold downs, seen it alot on early rigs. The doors came with vinyl siding, again many owners skinned them with sheet metal. 1969 was the last year for the round turn signals
hmm...that's a good idea. I like the sounds of it and am going to consider that...thanks!Up until now, I have wondered what a hard-skin, FST-shape, 40 would look like.
I'd consider fabricating a pair of soft upper, ambulance-type doors, starting with a Real Steel tailgate face, which has been cut in half, dressed in footman loops and factory license tag lamp(s). That is if the existing top has been proven road worthy.
uhhh...hmmm...uhhhh...I think I will keep the soft top doors I have and try and rebuild them....Here’s a door for you!
Here’s a door for you!
very true...I'm into VW buses and they've gone the same way too...I guess all collector cars have!What surprises me people are actually on their watch list.
Guessing this door is at least thirty-five years old. NOS or not wouldn't pay over $2K for it. The whole hobby has gotten ridiculous as for what people think things are worth. 1995 bought a set of complete bows and doors for $200. Around ten years ago someone listed a set of bows and used Kayline top on Mud for $200. After a week of no one buying them I did. Selling was not helpful with shipping and cost another $200 to get them picked up and shipped. Kayline top was black and only had a couple white ones so was worth it me. Seller also had the doors but those were in rough shape. Deals can still be found if your patient.
