Hi,
I just bought a 1966 Patrol today! Non-running. So, I hope to be pretty involved with this forum. It needs a distributor and wheel cylinders for sure, and probably a hundred other things... It does turn over. So, there's that. I have owned old FJ's and Land Rover Series trucks. I am used to blood, sweat, and tears...
Cheers,
Chuck

Welcome to 60Patrol! :text-welcomeconfetti: Great project Patrol you found, looks like it has definite potential. You've come to the right place to find everything you need to get it on the road again. I'm not far from you, if you ever want to pop up and see some others, or pick up some parts. ;) Post some pics of the ID tag and engine number so I can add it to the Registry.

Welcome...lot's of knowledge on this Forum...
Some hints:

Search then ask questions
Post photos, pictures speak a thousand words
Share solutions that work and that don't work...we all learn from others experiences.

Thanks River Patrol, I will definitely take you up on a trip to Temecula, and I will post a pic of the data plate and engine number once I get it to its new parking spot.
And to Zed, I'll definitely use the search function. Don't want to waste anyone's time.
Cheers,
Chuck

Hi again,
Is there a registry that shows which VIN's were originally sold in the US?
Thanks,
Chuck

The Registry here is the only Registry for US Patrols that exists. Probably all but about a handful in there were originally sold in the US.
