Tailgate Question

Did the original tailgate come embossed (stamped out in steel)with rotary power or was it flat with rotary power?

thanks

Original Tailgate

The original tailgates did not have the "ROTARY POWER" or the "MAZDA" embossed into the metal. they were appplied as vinyl decals. The very early tailgates also had two horizontal metal stiffners (lines) embossed into the skin. later ones only have one.

I think...

...you may have that backward, Orville... (or do I...?!?)

At least as far as I was aware, the 'single stiffener' tailgates were the very early ones...(which would be in keeping with my most recent accquisition, which has a manufacturing date of 1/74 on the door tag...).

Tailgate

Sharp eye there Klaus! I am the one who has it backwards. The early ones really have the single stiffner and the later ones have the two stiffeners. Hope to see you one of these days.
