1966 series IIa 109 pickup

Some of you will recognize this 109. I purchased it from Bob Steele back in December. I have come to relize that I am not suited to own such a nice truck. I find myself wanting to modify it into something I should not. So I have decided pass it on to someone else who can treat it right.

It is a 66 series IIa that went through an extensive resto a few years ago. New Frame, Parabolics, new body panels and wiring. Defender front seats and center console. The full canvas is pretty worn, the pickup canvas needs a few of the seams restitched but it is nice otherwise. The has the unleaded head and OVERDRIVE. Drives nice for a 40 year old truck. also has Warn 9000 winch and recover bag, high lift jack. Located outside of Richmond VA.
I will take more pictures tomorrow.

Asking [sold] firm

Best to call me 804-814-4328 leave a message I work odd hours but I will get back to you!

It is an amazingly clean truck, and Bailey is a chump for selling it. Oh yeah!

Here is an updated album of pictures taken today.

http://s61.photobucket.com/albums/h7.../series%20IIa/

I also need to be upfront that this is a very clean 109 but not perfect. The speedo does not work. It drips from the stock style oil filter, it needs a front wheel cyclinder, and you can expect a top speed of 50 mph with the big tires. Outside of that everything works as it should. and it does put a smile on your face to drive it.

I just have decided to go in a different direction and this is not the only toy for sale..... Chuck!

Ive driven RHD, I wasnt too crazy about it. And having to pass through security gates, twice a day to get on base- it would be a hassle.

With that said, I do think that most people wouldnt have an issue with it after they tried it a few times-

It would be handy for my retirement career in rural mail delivery-

It's not too bad. When I drive my RHD 88", I just reach across and hand them my ID card. These old series trucks are pretty narrow. It does get some weird looks though.

I work on Quantico, they pretty much wave anyone through with hardly a glance at your ID.

The Naval War College checks every single ID, every single time.
