Post by matvanslam » Fri Oct 11, 2019 5:39 am

Can anyone post pictures please ?

Middle seat required for a '65 Deluxe 13 window

Was there both a 2 seat and 3 seat with flip seat original option ?

Many thanks,

What does your m code say?
M251 option is short middle seat?
LHD RHD?
Bulkhead or WT?

Removed! Have you found the m code plate?
What m codes does it say?
I suspect that only the 7 seat option was defined by an m code. So your m code Plate will tell you.

425.
North American export package including
Twin reversing lights (may not always be true, depending on year)
MPH Speedometer
Sealed beam headlights
Hazard warning lights
Mountings for safety belts
Laminated windscreen
Ram protection (overrider bumpers)
Dual-circuit brake system
025. Safety belts
114. 6 popout side windows
130. Deluxe without sunroof and roof windows

797.? Deluxe option?

Model code is the clue!
225. Cargo doors right, sunroof, left hand drive, full middle seat.
But the deluxe code says no sun roof or Windows....
