  19. Pre-85 tailgate on a newer truck

    Range Rover Classic
    As many know, until the mid-80s the tailgate had a fold-down number plate and an external handle for the lower portion. Can the lower gate made for 70-84 models just bolt onto a newer model (in this case a 95 soft dash) provided that you replace the catch, I know the reverse can be done?
