109 With a pick up bed?

Anyone seen or know of 109s with a short box on the end and four doors? It kind of looks like a newer 130. I'm guessing the one that I saw on the road was not a 109, but it's definitely a series model.

There was a guy in NH who took 109 Station Wagons and converted them like this.

They were never configured that way from the factory if that's what you're wondering, although it is easy enough to convert. There is a member on this forum who was building a double cab style series- you might find it in the registry.

Thanks Guys! I wasn't quite sure where to post this. I thought there used to be a "Rover Sighting" thread, but I'm probably mistaken. Have a nice evening -Andy

Thanks Mack. I was wondering if it came from the factory this way. Wasn't sure if it was an early version of the 130 or something. Thanks for the education.

Gustavo, I have always admired the South African enginuity. They take the hands on approach to problems and make their own solutions. They're really good at making things work with the little that they have. I have a South African rig too. Thanks for the pics!

Wasn't there a thread a couple of months ago about the exact same truck and basically the same query about the DC series?
