That is a nice looking Patrol! I’ve had two red Patrols, and it was never my favorite color for a Patrol, but it really works on this one.

Thank you, I think the paint needs to match the age of the vehicle for the mind's eye to say...yes. Too bad this one is rusty. 34,000 miles on it .... original soft top.

Greetings from The Lair,

In order to give The Sleigh the dignity it deserves we have field modified the window bumpers. Last night they kinda worked. The goal is to prevent the hood from flexing when we hit a bump. Bad for hunting.

We will see.

David, I applaud you for using your Patrols for what they were designed for - actual offroading and hunting! :clap:

Greetings from the field,

The Patrol was advertised as the perfect hunting vehicle....so I've been hunting!

It was an old buck past breeding and on the way down.

We are actually overrun with these, Axis deer. The morning farm report is offering methods of containing them.

Our neighborhood has a standing population of about 500. Once over that population they trap and send them on vacation somewhere.

They are very wild at The Lair. It was a perfect stalk with the setting sun at my back and the wind in my face.

After they fled I tracked the two bucks and found them laying down. Once the larger buck stood up i made an offhand shot . It was dead when it hit the ground.

If you know axis meat...it is the best of the deer family so three hours later it was ready for the freezer.

Patrolling in paradise,
L60BOERNE

Plateaucal,
Now, I know you live on a mountain top retreat high in Rockies and the Texas cold should not be a problem :shock: but ......based on our hunting experience in February :violin: at The Lair it appears you maybe better suited for a sweltering Texas summer hunt with gnats, mosquitoes and the occasional rattlesnake...or two. :think:

Sooo when you are ready for the polar opposite let me know. We will have better luck. :pray:

Patrolling in the pasture,

I'd even take the rattlesnake. Deep fried of course.

Greetings,
I was doing some ranch work today and I think this Patrol finally lost it starter. Does anyone have a "known" OEM starter for this 65 they will sell me?

I have one up at Then and Now being rebuilt but who knows when it will be finished.

Please send me a message if you have one.

Have you verified that the starter really is good?

I bought and have been using this one for awhile now. It bolts right up and has worked great. Fairly cheap as well.
