Port add on for sure, factory heaters though available starting in late ‘64 didn’t be come standard until till ‘66 though most ‘65 had them. There was a factory option heater in early 40/45s it was the Denso “clam shell” and was Uber rare mostly seen in ‘63 FJ45LVs

Here is a September 1964 Toyota price guide, shows the Eaton heater option as well as others.

I think there was a lot of cross over and mix and match in the early years when they were transitioning to the removable top shorty. I think the heaters are dealer installed.

I would agree on a lot of cross over parts on the early. My 63 has the metal ribbed top but I just had a 64 fixed top in here that was metal and had no ribs. It’s the second one I have seen with no ribs.

Also I have seen a couple different designs on the tail lights. Some mounted down on the rear frame and others mounted directly to the beds.

my 63' has a ribbed steel roof and my 64 has a smooth steel with no ribs (also sold a 64 no long ago that was the same)
