Hi Clay yeah not sure if it will fit length wise I’ll have to look at how much I have lost, I haven’t really had a chance to get back to work on it since I’ve been back.
I appreciate your offer however I’ve been offered one over here, I’m thinking if I had too I could modify to fit.

Interior code 366-827
827 is Mephisto Red , but what does the 366 represent?

According g to the MPC all the FB models were introduced in January 1960. It was the EJ commercials that weren't released until 6 months after the passenger cars, as well as the HD utes being introduced 5 months after the rest. I have head of EK commercials with EJ steering box components, but I wo der if there were any made with the EJ brakes.

The first 3 digits of the trim code are a shortcut summary to the overall colours.

366 is plain Buckskin methinks but would need to check in the Holden Black Book.

Mother finally spotted the van in the yard. I've been doing a good job hiding it with landcruisers but doesn't work so well forward parked. Took it in her stride, so now can relax in to chopping the thing up. When I get over this horrible flu. Oh, and go through the ute motor.

You mean Janessa and Lindsay with the Lucerne Blue FB ????
