My 2nd 88"

The LGB (Little Green Beastie)

1959 Series II 88" SW (Was originally a Canadian spec truck with one-piece doors)- Acquired from my friend Pete Daniels in VA, in May or so of 2004. Rebuilt over the course of several years and moved between several locations. Rebuild used body panels from a 1964 SIIa that were nicely patinated Bronze Green. Sold 4/2007 to Bill Brown in upstate NY. He painted it and last I heard it was for sale again as of 2009.

I'm guessing it would be in the realm of $100 to $150 using greyhound and/or UPS.

I don't recall whether I weighed it but I'm quite sure it is less than 100 lbs for the main section.

This is Leeroy a 1978 109 SW. PO installed a Toyota 13b NA diesel and used the truck for deep desert explorations. My wife drove him to Gilf Kebir (soutwest corner of Egypt with Sudan and Lybia), I rode my KTM 640 Adventure R. Twelve days completely offroad, 2400kms self-supported. Since that trip I have changed the chassis for a 110 and installed a 300tdi this past December. Just got it back from paintshop last night with new grill and bonnet. Getting ready for another trip to Gilf Kebir/Jebel Uweinat area in December 2010. Cheers.

Did you have to modify the chassis crossmember for the parabolics and military shackles?
Thanks Galen. The stock front driveshaft will conflict with the crossmember. Some folks modify the crossmember, but I just got Bill @ Great Basin to make me a heavy duty, but smaller diameter shaft. Problem solved.

The hoop and diagonals flat packed (strapped together with a label stuck on, no packaging) weighs out at 89lbs and largest dimension is 57 inches. Shipped Greyhound to the Los Angeles station quotes out at $92.85. So far they seem to run 5 or 10 bucks higher than the online quote when I go in to actually ship something, so call that $100 even. The frame brackets weigh 22lbs and would go UPS ground to your zip code at a cost of $34.00.

Best Regards,
Dave

My first Rover

I've owned my 88 since 1971...kinda dates me huh. She started out with a basic hard top but sometime in the late 70s I converted it to a truck cab. She sported a new paint job in Dodge truck bright green when I bought her from a Jeep dealership but I changed the color to Marine blue in the 80s. The photos are from a trip to MAR a couple of years ago behind my 110.

Hey Chris,

It's been way too long since I've seen you! Things are fine, kids are grown and gone. I hope to get up your way for an event sometime. It would be great to get together for a visit and I've got a D90 ST that's gonna need a new top before too long...

Mike

They were weather checked random tube-type radials that came with the truck. I could sort through the old photos and see if there is a clear shot of them. I never really ran them, rather, put my old worn out Dunlop RT's on there when it was "done."

I looked and they are BF Goodrich Traction-Plus 7.00 x 15

Here's mine. Just hit 200 miles since the restoration:

Edit: Not sure why these pics don't actually show in this post. I used the [img]...[/img] tags that I normally use on other forums. Oh well.
