1979 ex-MOD 109 FS in NOVA

1979 ex-MOD 109 RHD 2.25L project vehicle for sale for $2900 OBO. Needs some work but I think it can be on the road pretty quickly. Warning - long ad.

- Includes soft top and hoop set/cab frame
- Includes rear tailgate - this tailgate is bowed a bit, but I think it can be straightened. Tailgate has many of the bits to mount the pioneer kit
- Includes three or four old elephant hide station wagon bench seats.
- Chassis needs a little work. One outrigger is rusty. One crossmember has a hole in it that I started cleaning up. Had a rear crossmember and gas tank replacement at some point, as there's a 109 SW or perhaps regular rear crossmember mounted. It does have the eyelets for the tailgate. Some rust near the rear crossmember repair. Some areas of chassis have the original paint underneath the layers of paint.
- Body, though rattle-canned by previous owner genius or maybe the genius before him, is in okay shape. She has a kiss on the rear starboard lower wheel arch on the bottom. Appears that the camo paint underneath the flaking OD paint is actually in pretty good shape.
- Engine has a lot of promise. Ran great when I took it out to Front Royal. A wire came loose in the steering column when I first unloaded it a couple years ago - truck would start and not really run unless key held almost in the starting position. Very frustrating, but I kept coming out and running it once in a while. Finally found a loose red/white wire around the ignition switch - reconnected it, and truck will run. Dash is currently partially disassembled. Fuel degraded, and it's currently over at 4x4 Land in Chantilly. We had it running last week-end, but it needs to be de-fueled and fuel filter replaced. Not a hard job, but I lost my place to work on it! I'm also going to get the oil changed while it's at 4x4 Land. When I had it running good, it would literally be running with no choke in a couple of turns even in very cold weather.
- Transmission case is cracked and it leaks. It will hold oil, but don't top it off. It holds enough oil to run pretty good. All gears work fine. It would benefit at some point to remove the transmission and repair the transmission case.
- Swivels in good shape.

It rides on 7.5x16s and is currently wearing a hard top. It does have the cool radio antenna mount on starboard side. If I had the space, I would get this thing running, pull that top off, and ride around with the windshield down for a while. This would be a good beater truck, but with some cleaning up, it could be even better.

Please PM me if interested. I can also email more pics. It can be a great project. Again, I have no space and frankly, no time to work on it.
