    Does anyone know what the differences between these grills are? They all look the same to me...

    The URL for the above list is

    http://www.sor.com/sor/products2.tam?xax=7177&category.ctx=112-28&page#.ctx=112

    It's easier to look at there.

    Attached is a picture of the front grill from my '66.

    Thanks in advance.

    early to 74 I think, the emblem mounts differnt. 75-78 should be the same, they use the latter emblem. 79+ differnt yet, square bezel for one and just a different grill

    Thanks for the reply.

    So fair to say that E-78 the grills are all the same except for the Toyota emblem mounting?

    The very early grills with the stamped Land Cruiser on the bezel didn't have the Toyota emblem in the grill.

    i have noticed some differences mine are canadian cruisers . anyways my 75 grill is taller to comes up into the hood area ,also my 75 hood is different no lip , my 78 grill even with top of bib , my 78 hood has a lip . never noticed if different mounting location of the emblems ,oh! maybe i had to widen the holes on the newer bib to fit an older emblem into it .the older bib emblem had a wider spread on the mounting bolts

    grill picks different heights
