Hello all,

Im in need of a 70 glove box door and or working latch if anyone has a spare they are willing to part with. $ or trade your call. The locking mechanism on mine jammed and after a very frustrating hour of farting around with a flash light and screwdriver I ended up damaging it. This has been a frustrating week one step foreword and two steps back. I'm days from having mini me on the road but eventually I'll need to cover that hole in the dash.

Many thanks in advance.

they are available from Toyota, however you need to convince them you are not driving a forklift. Not sure why a forklift would need a glovebox...

$53 or so, it was promised out of California in 3-4 weeks and showed up 2 days later. Go figure...

Early glove boxes have a key lock too.
My 75 never had a lock nor did my old mans 75 but they were STD vinyl interior spec, i wonder if the lock on the earlia models came on the higher trim level 7x series .

Among the millions of useful purposes of "duct tape" is keeping the glove box closed.:) $2.00 and you are good to go. If its good enough for every rednecks truck its probably good enough for yours.:)

As red neckage as duct tape to the glove box would be ,id have to do a few more RN upgrades to fit in,you will find the minimum RN requirements in pics below on the white75 and red 79 series :hillbilly:


And a big set of CHROME gonads hanging of the rear towbar which would be rated for 8T


When one of my glove box lid hinges finally tor out the metal, i was lucky enough to drive 2 minutes down the road and have a choice of about 30 2nd hand glove box lids to choose from:grinpimp:

Needless to say, that brushbar probably keeps the Roo population in check. They would not stand a chance against that thing.:)
