I think by '83 the new VIN had been established.

Found a few more.

ftp://ftp.nhtsa.dot.gov/mfrmail/01-22-N11B-1473.pdf
FJ40C: Honsha

ftp://ftp.nhtsa.dot.gov/mfrmail/01-22-N11B-1895.pdf
FJ60G: Honsha
Truck 0-4: Hamura (Hino)
Truck 5-9: Tahara

ftp://ftp.nhtsa.dot.gov/mfrmail/01-22-N11B-7434.pdf
LX470/Land Cruiser: Honsya
4Runner Tahara or Hamura (Hino) depending on chassis

I understand I think, from Rob's TLC FAQ.

Body Styles
===========
All Land Cruiser bodies (Except the Bundera and the 45 Wagon) are made by
Araco (Formerly Arakawa), a division of Toyota. Araco also manufactures the
interiors for Land Cruisers, Lexuses, and other Toyota cars and trucks.
Toyota manufactures the Bundera/LandCruiser II, and Gifu Body manufactured the
45 Wagon. The remainder of the vehicle (except in some cases the engines) is
manufactured at Toyota's Honsya plant (Factory code A11)
BTW, all those NHTSA PDFs I found here:

The Jan. 1980 I just sold had a factory chrome package - including front bumper, running boards, bezel and bumperettes. The bumper had been replaced, and I sandblasted and powdercoated the rusty bezel. I sandblasted and painted the running boards, and the rear bumperettes were in nice shape, so I left them chrome.

Was that an LX or was the chrome package optional outside of an LX-type package?

So has anyone actually heard any response back from the seller (classic investments)?

I haven't had any response.
Thanks
Abe

I think the chrome package on this 1980 truck had nothing to do with the 'LX' package.
