Gentlemen, take a look at this series iia 109 wagon

He added this with the photos: "Not gonna lie, its pretty rough, but its a starting point. The pics look ok, but the frame is pretty shitty. I'm looking for $2700. That's what it cost me. I bought it 2 months ago, got it running, and parked it in the back yard so my wife would stop complaining about it. I haven't even really given it a good inspection. I'm not actively trying to sell it, I figured you were close by and looking for one. My plan was to fix it up a bit and make it a decent runner and than sell it. Well, its here and not going anywhere, so if you want to come look it over, feel free, just let me know when."

Thoughts? I'm going to try and see if Nate Dunsmore tag along with me to check it out at some point so i have another pair of educated eyes looking it over. No idea what kind of shape the firewall is in, but i shall keep posted. Does this seem too good to be true to you guys too?!?!?!

If the seller says the frame is pretty shitty, then I would think it means "needs a new frame". If frame is rusted to shit, then I'd assume that a lot of other parts are rusted and will need to be replaced very soon.

Online speculation will not replace onsite inspection. If you haven't driven a Series before, you should before you buy one.

That line is genius right there! The seller at least seems like a straight-shooter which is a huge bonus.

Just wanted to make sure you find out what driving a tractor feels like! No power steering, drum brakes, less-than-powerful engine, low top speed, lack of comfort, (maybe) double clutching (late Series iia had synchromesh, that one might have it). Don't get me wrong: this does not remove the grin on the driver's face.

Loic is dead on...

To put in perspective, a D90 will feel like a Cadillac after you drive a Series for a few hours.

Still sounds like a good deal even if it needs a frame. Worth going to look at for sure.

I know the seller and he is a good guy. He knows Series trucks and is a straight shooter. Any one that went to Conclave the seller drives the grey 109 that had a 200 tdi in it.

The seller and myself are both members of ROVERS and if you bought it we would continue to help you in any way. When I bought my first truck in this club everyone helped with advice, parts, etc...

Series frames can be patched for a very long time.

Where is it? I might be up to tag alone for an inspection.

Since it is a IIa, the LHD conversion is pretty straight forward.
