100" Hybrid - Feeler/For Sale

Like many of us, I have bite off more than I can chew. Early last year, I purchased a good starting point on a 100” hybrid truck. Pictures will follow but they are rough, as the body is just sitting on the frame, it is not bolted on right now.

1964 109 shortened to 100 inches on a RRC Frame.
  • Clean 1964 title
  • Currently RHD
  • I planned on doing a frame swap. I have a RRC rolling chassis for it to be moved too.
  • Rover 3.5 block with a lot of time and money spent on it. Approx 2000 miles on the motor since rebuild
    • Bored .030 over, new pistons, and rings
    • Rods, crank and block magnafluxed
    • Crank turned and balanced, all new rod and main bearings
    • Heads reworked, with larger 4.6 “tulip” valves (more flow), new springs and guides.
    • Heads extensively ported and polished with valve guides cut down and polished in the runners, combustion chambers ground to stop the valve shrouding with larger valves.
    • Hardened valve seats installed
    • Cam 3 degree advance for more low end with Buick 3.8 adjustable true roller chain
    • 3.8 front cover with Buick high volume oil pump and buick water pump
    • HEI distributor
    • Edlebrock manifold with Holley Pro-Jection fuel injection system. Simple system with no O2 sensors. Will run at any angle.
    • Manifold and head ports ground to match.
    • Headman headers with full dual exhaust
    • Delco 160 amp alternator
  • LT95 transmission with Overdrive. (Will need some detent springs)
  • Body panels have many dents.
  • Custom 109 (removable) Hard top with ribbed roof and glass windows
  • Series full rear door
  • Drop down tailgate
  • Series/D90 Doors
  • Defender hood/Bonnet
  • Series wings
  • Defender grill & Surrounds
  • Not perfect but complete SIII LHD bulkhead with dash, peddles and steering wheel and built in throttle control
  • Two series seat boxes
  • (4) 38” Interco TSL’s
  • Drive shafts
  • Front and rear links
  • Misc spare parts

Needs:
  • Frame Swap (I have the frame)
  • Front and rear seats
  • Body panels straightened
  • Full Roll cage
  • Brush bar
  • Lockers & gears

I am still on the fence about selling this, but I have not been able to do much more than unbolting stuff off it. I would be able to deliver it a reasonable distance for gas money.


Here it is in 2008 at Tellico's Guardrail trail




Looking for $3500.

It is/will be a great truck, but it will take more time than I have right now with 4 kids... Thanks for the nice comments.

Wow this is tempting Scott. Back off Josh!! Wait, do you have to have four kids to have a 100"? That might rule me out.

So it was running and intact in 2008 apparently. Why did you start taking it apart? For a frame swap and cosmetics? Is suspension included too?

Thanks
