Spotted KT-3 SN 00108. Is that an original roof rack?

That one looks pretty clean . The track belts have been replaced from the floppy original style . Thats about as good of one as I seen . I know we have 3 or 4 members in the middle of rebuilding their KT3's ,but I have not seen any photo's in a long time .
How about it Gavin and Buck ???? Any pictures to spare .


EDIT: Oh and that is a original roof rack . Not much thought put in it . Mine looks like its made out of 1/2" electrical conduit . The plywood was probably a option that year !

I think I have come up with a theory on reconditioned Kristi KT3's out of Washington . Every KT3 that I have seen with the yellow stripes or lower half painted yellow seems to have gone back to Washington Kristi and have been rebuilt . I bet this was part of the recondition package that Washington Kristi was offering . Someplace I have information that the reconditioning cost to rebuild a KT3 cost about $3200 in the early 70's . My KT3 was reconditioed and a optional 3rd door was added at the same time . It also has the Red/yellow paint scheme .

This KT-3 has plexiglass on the driver and passenger door windows, and the little corner windows. The rest appear to be glass, including the windshield. I have it on 'good authority' that this '62 had "Peerless Windows" installed by Kristi in '65.

Kind of embarrassing for a guy who lives by the GPS, but I don't remember. I was so surprised to stumble on it that I forgot to note the name of the nearest town or mark it on my GPS. It was a rushed week working through central MT, western WY, and western CO. I will be heading back along the same route this coming week. When I find it I will try to find the owner and get you the details.

Looks like Mikey is almost finished modifying and painting his Imp.

OK, just kidding. Spotted this behind the gas station in Clyde Creek, MT. Which gas station? THE gas station.

OUCH! Man Bob and I though you liked Mystic Metalic Magenta! OR Puke for short. Good LORD that thing is UGLY. Could this be the missing link between the KT3 and KT7? Most likely though its a PCP induced recab of a poor old Imp. I believe I would rather be seen in a Kristi!

Do my eyes deceive me or is that a Toyota mill in the bread box?

Update on that KT-3 from last week. I think the owner may be willing to part with it. PM me for info. First come, first served.

By the way, that's the Porsche engine.
