Interior trim options

 

There are few sources for stock replacement T34 interior panels. The biggest problem with replacement interior panels is that the heat-seamed lines are very difficult to reproduce, and most vendors simply sew the lines which results in a less-than-original look.
Most 1962-64 T34s had two-toned panels and the lower panel was either cloth or vinyl.All 1965-69 T34s were fitted with monotone panels.

FINDING CHASSIS, BODY, & ENGINE NUMBERS: There are three identification numbers on each Type 34, the body, the chassis, and the engine. The body identification number is located inside the spare tire area on an aluminum plate riveted to the right side of the inner wall, stamped into that plate. The chassis identification number is located under the rear seat, stamped into the center tunnel. And the engine identification number is stamped on the center of the engine case. If the Type 34 is original then the body & chassis numbers should match. If these numbers do not match then the chassis may have been replaced at some point. It is not uncommon for a chassis from a Type 3 vehicle to be used.
