i have never seen a factory set of coil-over rear shocks, but they are in the microfiche, so they must exist.

baywindow front mesh sun shade is very rare.

They use speed and time in road rallies. Have you ever heard of the "Great Race"?

It was for commercial vehicles....it let business track how many kilometers there vans were driven and at what speed. it also allowed authorities to see if the vehicle was driven on sundays as commercial vehicles could not be driven on sundays or something like that...

My single cab came with some kind of dealer installed crotch coolers...in the metal plates where the ambulance fans usually go, its an outlet for fresh air on hot days. I posted pictures a while ago...they work incredible!

Colin has a real nice one, nicest one Ive seen by far, but he silkscreened the gauge face himself, it is a one-off.

The answer to that question is no, there was not a tachograph offered for Baywindows, however many have been made "to fit"

Other Rare Baywindow dash gauges are the trip-odometer

and the Gas heater control
