Originally a Swiss truck. this 109 is in excellent condition with straight body panels and a solid. repair free frame. A 109 'regular. it has 2 doors and a tail/lift gate in the back. Full length roof rack (made by a previous owner) on a fully removable hard top with sunshield. Fitted with the original excellent running European spec. 2. 6 liter 6 cylinder engine mated to a newly rebuilt transmission and a upgraded high-ratio transfer case. The vehicle has a remarkably low 82. xx km on the clock and is driven weekly.

This truck would be an excellent candidate for someone looking for a stock/easy to restore classic series. or as a fun and capable daily driver as I have done. I would not hesitate to drive this truck across country. it is driven regularly and well maintained. I have replaced anything on the truck that needed attention and am familiar with nearly every inch of the truck as I have done a majority of the work myself over the past 5 years of ownership. I have part and work receipts totaling over $8. 00 from that time. I understand the complications of buying a vehicle online. and am including a very comprehensive description below of any aspects of note for this Rover. I spent 5 months this winter/spring going over the vehicle while rebuilding the transmission to fix anything amiss. with the intention of selling with a clean bill of health. Please feel free to ask any questions or for additional images. I am selling this due to our family outgrowing it. it is a wonderful truck and will be missed.
Details
Mechanical: Just completed a rebuild of transmission and slave cylinder in 2014. New 1st gear. layshaft and all bearings. gaskets and any items that showed wear. I've driven the truck  since completion and it is excellent.  Ashcroft High Ratio transfer case. This has higher ratio hi-gears for faster highway speeds. much like an overdrive. but retains the stock low end gears. A great combination with the 2. 6 engine.  Bottom end of engine was professionally rebuilt by Matt Browne at Overland Engineering in Eliot ME in 2010 to replace/repair crankshaft bearings and ways. He is available to vouch for the condition of the power plant and overall truck.  Rebuilt water pump. rebuilt starter. rebuilt carb. new exhaust manifold. rebuilt alternator. new Optima battery and a new Petronix electronic ignition in the past few years.  Previous Owner rebuilt the brake system. which is the strongest available for a series truck. New MC. wheel cylinders and turned drums.  Parabolic springs and Old Man Emu Shocks. All bushings replaced with Poly in 2012 Fairy locking hubs in front.  New complete custom exhaust and muffler in 2013.  Vacuum and Volt gauge added in 2011.  Engine oil and filter changed regularly regardless of miles and valves adjusted at suggested intervals which is required to keep a 2. 6 running happily.  Interior and other: -New Trakker high-back seats in 2013 for the drive and passenger. Still have the deluxe seats these replaced which are in great condition. and a brand new deluxe bottom seat spare. Center seat is in good condition.  Stock bench seats along the bed sides for seating up to 8! I keep 2 sets installed. back cushions are good. seat cushions are good on 2. 2 have some minor holes.  I currently have a Bestop folding seat mounted behind the bulkhead. I use this for car seats. I will include it if desired but since it is not stock it will be removed to avoid any liability issues.  Brand new exmoor insulated floor matts.  New but not installed door cards by exmoor.  Simple LEDs installed for interior lighting. there was none originally- nothing fancy and easy to remove- no holes drilled.  Wired in a USB port for charging an iPhone. discretely installed in center dash console in spare switch port. -Roof never had headliner installed. so is clean painted metal. Earlier owner installed wooden battens for hanging storage when used as a camper which are still present but easily removed.  2 inch hitch receiver installed in 2012. Highlift jack mounted to rear bumper.  New door tops and rebuilt window tracks in 2010 with defender style mirrors on doors.  PO installed new oem gas tank 5 matching bias-ply tires with plenty of life New to truck windscreen frame with new laminated safety glass I've painted large areas of the frame. but this is an ongoing exercise. As I access areas for various projects I clean and paint the frame. It is repair free and in excellent condition and most original paint is still present.  Known Issues: The Deluxe Bonnet central support is rusted through in spots and either needs repair or replacement. The Swiss spec trucks had insulation in the bonnet and this captured moisture leading to this issue. I have a replacement frame/bonnet which is included in the sale. but it hasn't really been a priority so I never changed itThere is some surface rust/pitting on the top side of the passenger swivel ball. I replaced the seal this summer and leaking has stopped. A new swivel ball and rebuild kit is included.  On the top of the sun screen the paint is peeling and there is a dent/bend over the driver side door where someone stepped. This could be straightened given attention. There are a few cracks in the dashboard vinyl. Can be easily recovered or replaced with an OEM unit. Driver footwell has a patch on one edge. It is very cleanly done. but is there.  Previous Owners have put holes in the hard top sides. body sides and in plenty of other places over the past 40 years. This includes the roof rack which is bolted onto the roof. There is no rust through or corrosion that I know of on any body panels.  Doors are solid but I know there is some patching under the paint on some channels. There are a number of spare parts. manuals and other items that will be included with the vehicle sale. I have an extended gallery of photos on picasa here
