In my '64 FC Assembly Manual, the extensions are shown as a regular part of the Z60 option package.

How about that! I had not noticed that page, which is not present in the 61-63 assembly manuals. However, is the extension panel really a only a Z60 feature. If I'm reading the Assembly Manual page correctly, the extension was to be used on standard and Z60 (Deluxe) Greenbriers.

Since the extension panels themselves are included in the P & A catalogs dating back to 1961, I'm guessing that these were co-opted from the original taxi-cab equipment, and the interior vinyl panels were redesigned to fit.

Craig replies: As I read the '64 assembly manual, the part is only found on Z60-equipped vehicles; that's why it's on the Z60 option page in the option section. If it was on all GB models, it would be in the regular pages of the assembly manual and not on the Z60 option page.

This filler panel and the correspondingly wider deluxe panel were not an option, they were standard on all deluxe Greenbriers beginning with the 1964 model year. So, not particularly rare. What IS rare is the 8-door version of the filler panel, which is a mirror image of the 6-door piece and as uncommon as deluxe-equipped 8-doors. A club member here in NJ is restoring a '65 deluxe 8-door Greenbrier and tearing his hair out trying to find the left-side filler panel. Anybody have one to spare?

Craig,
Oh, now I see why I was confused! I misread the note at the bottom of the page as "Models 1206 & 1206 (w/ Z60)" due to aging eyes, small print, and (I now see) that it says "Models 1206 & 1206 (w/ E80)", which is a typo since "E85" is the RPO for left side doors.

OK, all of this was much-ado about nothing (maybe).

Feeling really dumb right now, I'm hesitant to start another thread about the side door striker plates I observed in the '64 hippy van. I'll check first.... Am I also the only person who did not know that there were actually 3 (maybe 4) different designs; which were used in early 1961, late 1961 - 1963, a 1964 version, and (possibly) a 1965 version?
