    Title says it all....need to look for a body, but don't want anything from a year that will not fit.

    Thanks.

    Thanks for the compliment. :coffee:

    The exterior dimensions of the later body is the same as the earlier body, but the floors are different. Doesn't bolt on, but apparently it can be modified to fit.
