Just estimating from my build date 10/76 to your build date 6/77, my VIN is 233589. Yours is 251372. That's 17,783. So it would probably be close to 20,000 or 25,000 I would suppose. That's worldwide I think.

Kurt's is a 6/77 and is 252155. So that's 18,566.
How does a renter register a vehicle?

They tell you when the registration card comes in the mail so you can mail a check to the county

There's always the chance tHat we'll have a nice dry and warm fall/winter, so maybe we'll get lucky and be able to have the 40's Run in nice weather yet this season. I'm hoping to have my surgery done mid October, so at least I'll be able to drive again, even if my leg isn't 100%.

Looking forward to seeing RC in person soon.

I'm remember seeing this on RMC's webpage years ago:

http://www.rockymountaincruisers.com...d%20you%20know...

Doesn't answer the question on how many were built (worldwide) but apparently under 10K were sold in the US.

From the site of Jeff's link:
"Back in the 1950's the American Army contacted the Toyota Motor Corporation with a request for a 4WD vehicle to be used by the soldiers and military police stationed in Japan. Toyota took the request seriously. The result: the Land Cruiser, a literally bulletproof vehicle. Down to earth yet with spirited attitude, capable of enlivening the life you're living and the conversation you're having."

I certainly have to agree with the last sentence. Didn't know that the Land Cruiser was created because of a request from the American military.
