My '73 Toyota Land Cruiser Station Wagon had a starting crank.

I am pretty sure that UK Land Rovers had the starting handle at least
until the late 1970s... The series 3 workshop manual shows the special
dog bolt anyway.

The starting handle makes some maintenance jobs (setting the valve
clearances and the static ignition timing, for example) a lot easier too...
