Dear colleagues,

I'm glad to join with you on this forum. I own a double cab PuP with a C223 engine which my father gave to me, though I don't know its year of manufacture. For more than 10 years, this PuP lay desolate but I'm revamping it with unquenchable zeal.

Yesterday 20.02.2021, I did my second road test and it performed quite well. More work remains to be done. My goal is get it fully restored as a light utility vehicle that I can proudly keep around.

I look forward to learning more about the PuPs, especially the best possible ways I can work out and maintain mine.

Thank you!

Welcome to the site, Mwitale.

If the double cab had been available here, I would probably be driving one.

If you need to know the model year, we should be able to get it from 10th digit of the VIN.
A=1980 (the US did not have this in 1980)
B=1981
C=1982
D=1983
E=1984
F=1985
G=1986
H=1987
