    Mine doesn't have shoulder belts but that one does have the "bolt in" roof beams and opera lights like mine! Pretty rusty though!
    I'll need to remember the headliner too, different from the stateside ones (more stripped down appearing).

    Charles,

    I was noticing the headliner. Do your bolt on x-members go on the bottom side of the headliner, like the in the pic?

    That seems odd also........

    I would suspect they were added later in life, i don't think shoulder belts were yet required anyplace in the world untill a bit latter(like 1969 for the US cars, trucks were prolly latter than that)

    I dig the paint job :)

    Yep, Landpimp, ya got it wrong! Rick_D is right! Wide bolt in bows on the under or visible side of the headliner! :)

    You dropped a notch in our expectations! We thought you knew it all!!

    One other thing, if the headliner material is stock it looks like an FJ40 headliner. Possibly glued to the roof? It doesn't look like it has the wood strips around the edge, the liner goes over the body edge on the inside.

    Charles, is yours glued to the roof or held in by headliner bows?

    Those are the ONLY bows in the roof. There is NOTHING above the headliner. Without the bows if you put anything on the roof you'd cave it in (that's not saying that the bows are super strong but they are better than just sheet metal).

    Mine has been played with in the past but I am 99% sure that it is glued much like the picture at the beginning of this thread. There is NOTHING to indicate that there was ever a wood moulding around the edge.

    Yes, holy thread revival batman!


    Anyway, the 45V in the pic is mine (new to me). Obviously the eBay link is now dead but I don't suppose anyone on here saved any pics from the listing? I do this quite a bit for future reference. I wonder if it sold back then and how much?


    Very very Long shot, I know :)

    I'll email Matt (buckroseau) and ask him.

    Is that roof rail as rusty as it looks in the pic?

    Do you have any of the pictures from the original Ebay post or recall what the outcome of the sale was? Lupdog bought this rig and wants some of those pics from way back.

    I don't sorry. I'm sure I robbed that pic off the net just to ask that seatbelt question.
