Phoenix I was sent this image of an ARN ledger that has my other Landcruiser listed in it.
It maybe of some help to you.

I have also been lucky enough to be given copys of the modification instructions for the Landcruisers .

45 and 47 are both long wheel base. 40 and 42 are the shorties. I know because I ahhh ....  may have owned a few in my time.

And I have not, and I have been proved somewhat wrong!  Thanks for the information :)

36 range of regos, yup, got those pages (I thought for a minute it was one of the missing sections from the ledger before that one). I don't even have a 36 range page on the website as yet as I've not put any in that range into the system knowingly as yet.  All on the to do list along with several thousand other vehicles of varying types.

I'll add yours when I get a chance so that we keep track of any news we get on it.

Thanks For finding that Master chief :-)

A number 5 trailer  with cruiser hubs sounds tempting too  ::)
