    a 76/77/78 body with the back chopped and refitted
    i do like the splits
    i do like the bed
    i strongly dislike the front clip
    i dislike you can't get the 1HZ under the bonnet
    all in all 51%, a pass is a pass.

    but

    this does mean that i should be able to source the parts for converting a 77/78 over to a 4 door truck now.

    <fine, i am just jealous that you are getting my dream truck>

    Welcome to the world of "design rationalization" and "cross-platform design".

    Well the look has been around since the 60 series was introduced in 1980.

    I don't think that looks much like a Taco. The Tacomas are way more round, grille is massive and the fender flares are an eyesore.
