Proper Bugeye fenders? on a 109? KNow the story on the truck before you bought it?

Steve...it's a hybrid for certain. That's pretty clear. Not trying to pass it off as anything else. Not sure if that is what you mean. Or if you honestly are interested in how it became to be or know how it became to be before I bought it. That history I really don't know.

When I originally found the truck I did't know or care about the story nor how "rare" a 109 bugeye is/was/could be. Some folks on here help sort that story out long ago when we dissected the VIN. Those are fenders off a 1967 88" as far as we can tell. And it has Disco/RRC axles, a SIII gearbox & transfer case, 110 front seats, D90 license plate light, and 110 door seals. The exhaust may be from a Pacer or a Maverick for all I know.

Definitely not for the purist...but it looks pretty cool and is very capable the way it is configured.

I agree with Bill, 15k is way to Low and you won't be able to replace the truck with a suitable replacement for that. If you sell I highly recommend you reconsider your asking price...

Truck no longer for sale or trade.

I will hold on to it and enjoy what I have.

The more I looked around at other replacement options the more I became aware that I really dig this truck and that it would be hard for me to replace it in a lot of ways.

Thanks to all who contacted me wanting to purchase it.

Jeff, I need to dump the 2.25. I have a 3.9/r380/lt230 in my garage that I will shoe horn in somehow. I think that will re-kindle the fire!

Thank goodness, I about fell out of my chair when I saw your for sale post...'NoOoo. Don't do it!' lol, I'm glad you changed your mind.

Well isn't this an interesting thread.

I gotta say, this is the kind of despair I anticipated when you got talked into going EFI... glad to see the update that you have come (halfway) to your senses, but I still vote for carburetion. :D

Please elaborate as why you feel the carb setup is better then EFI?

I think it's... inappropriate to EFI any series truck. Not to mention overly complicated, and to go through the trouble to do EFI under the guise of doing so for simplicity, and then use a system with distributor ignition is counterproductive.

A 1969 SII is to a 1995 Discovery what a big wheel is to a motorcycle. I'm fine with its update to coiler chassis. Two thumbs up for V8 conversion. But with land rover EFI on it, it just isn't as cool.

Ok, so if this was your daily driver would you rather have carb or EFI? Taking the series out of the equation.

Carb! I'd consent to an electric choke, but it needn't be any more complicated than that.
