frankenstein 109

welp, after a very short notice date change i finally got it! i got my frankenstein 109
series land rover are very new to me, so just about everything will be a learning experience. i bought it from a guy named Don Emory, who is one of the nicest guys i've ever meet. He gave me a ton of parts to complete the truck, couldn't have asked for a better guy to sell me this truck. the chassis, bulkhead, breakfast are spotless and are already painted. it runs like crap and needs a well needed tune up but it runs, and drives! the plan is parabolic's, 24 spline axles, disc brakes, and than... well i am not sure i think it i am just going to wing it!
but here are some pictures. I can't wait to really start digging into it!

Congrats! Looks like a great project! Are you going to keep it a truck cab? I'd recommend you order the green bible ASAP although I'm sure it's online somewhere too. Have fun and keep us posted!

little update, pulled the carb off yesterday cleaned, ordered a rebuild kit and ordered a new inline filter and gaskets so i can drop and clean out the tank. also i bought a spare front axle from him that has warn locking hubs on it. so i ripped them off, and than went looking through some of the boxes he gave me and on the bottom were three new gaskets and the old installation instructions but i need four gaskets so i made another and will install them tomorrow.
