JGO do you have a picture of this gutter? My April 66 doesn't have near as much of the cool stuff as the earlier ones, but I still like to see it!

JGO,
I've been "you" in many comments in the past. I just ignore the cranky unhappy people these days and keep on keeping on. Don't sweat the little things in life buddy.

Here's a gutter on the floor of my Oct 65 Roadster, 68 Mexican 1000 winner.

But not ALL budd body Roadsters had them - very early ones like this mid August 65 Roadster does not.

My 67 U15 that Ford assembled with many other leftover 66 parts (tailgate, grill) has that gutter. So itís not just an early 66 roadster thing.

OK...what about the short gutter near the top of the driver's side kick panel. Was it a feature on non-Budd body trucks as well? I have owned four 1966 Broncos: two early Budd body trucks, both had the two gutters; two later in the year, neither had either gutter.

Any info appreciated, Rex

I've only seen kick panel ones on the early Budd trucks.

I believe my March of 66 bronco has one as well. I will look again this afternoon and report back. The only reason I think it has one as I remember cleaning out all the leaves and dirt that was accumulated there when I was getting it prepped for Raptor liner.

66, 289, C4, D44, upgrading as funds allow.

As does my Oct 65 Roadster. I just didn't take a pic of the upper kick gutter.
