Alternative bodies for Fourtrak


I originally bought my 1987 Fourtrak F75 as an engine donor for my CJ-5 Jeep !
I'm so impressed with the mechanicals I've decided to sell the Jeep and concentrate on the Daihatsu instead.
The chassis is mint but the same cann't be said about the body.
The rear was rotten (as normal Sad ) so that has been cut off to turn it into a flat bed pick-up.

I've been thinking, that with so much rust, that an alternative body might be a good idea.
I understand there used to be a kit (Saxon) based on the old F50 but was there ever anything suitable for the F75 Unknw

Thanks but I couldn't live with those looks - ugly in my opinion !
Also the sills are too high for me to climb in & out as I have mobility problems (left leg).

You could always try the hybr

You could always try the hybread solution. Basicly find a car you like. Cut the chassis to fit the bodies wheel base. and mount the body onto the Daihats running gear. Done well such hybreads can be stunning to look at, as well as very capable machienes. It is a lot of work to do well, but worth the effort.

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.
