This is the third, different 109 they've auctioned. First one was a dormobile that was converted to a station wagon in bronze green. Second one was a 109 in Marine Blue with a ton of NOS parts that was converted to bronze green with Jerry cans & the corresponding directionals. The current one is an entirely different bronze green 109 SW w/Jerry cans. They consider that configuration the "Orvis" look. My guess is they figure most people think of bronze green 109 when they hear the name, "Land Rover". At one point I actually asked Lanny if they'd be interested in mine as an Orvis vehicle as he restored it to the same level but it was a no go as it's a pastel green 88".

Can anyone tell me why my 1966 has a 6 cylinder instead of the 4 that the Orvis one has? The engine feels stronger than either one of my 3.9 V8 110s.

To my limited knowledge all 109 station wagons were two tone with limestone wheels and top. One that's all bronze green looks wrong to me.

There was one at URE with a straight six in it and he explained it all to me but I forget the details now. It was a factory setup for the period. It had the weird looking muffler thing on the top that served as the air intake. His was a Series IIA 109. Not sure of year.

Earlier ones were colored (bronze green, sandstone, etc) bodies with limestone wheels and sun sheet only. The later ones had their entire top (sun sheet plus roof surrounding alpine windows) limestone.

As far as the six cylinder 109's, they were called NADA (North American Dollar Area) and were only produced in 1967. I think they made just over 800 of them. Some people really like them as they are more rare than the 4 cylinder models- but the parts are harder to find and they don't really have much more power than the 4 bangers. Because of this their value isn't really any more or less than the 4 cylinder models. There's a club or registry here in the US specifically for that model if I'm not mistaken. I think someone here has an avatar with the registry name. The nice thing about the NADA's is their bulkhead is slightly different than the 4 cylinder models which makes it easier to retrofit newer, more powerful engines.

the six cyl sent to the states was different than the one available in the UK. I have brought over two 6 cyl series trucks with the more abundant UK 6cyl. The valves in the block design leave a bit to be desired. I haven't driven one with anywhere near the power of a v8.

Freda at Turners told me that the 6cyl engine did not handle the unleaded fuel very well.

Mine is a 1966 so someone must have retrofitted a 1967 6 cylinder? Mine doesn't have the weiird air cleaner though. Any way to tell if this is the correct engine?
