The first time I saw it was Greek Peak in 1998.
Was absolutely stunned by how nice and original it was less the RR Classic middle row seat.
Told Marc on the spot that if he ever was going to sell it to please give me first refusal.
He and Andreas had done loads of work to it and the radiator support was (is) galvanized.
Marc let me drive it and was mesmerized by the experience.

Having worked at the dealership when series rovers were new and newish saw lots of series IIAs and IIIs and some Series ones, but never a 107 wagon.

When in UK, once looked up the production figures in a book Phil Bashall at Dunsfold had.
Vaguely remember very low production numbers for the 107 wagon.
Perhaps about 8K total with about 6K being LHD export with most going to continental Europe.
This was about 20 years back, so am relying on memory for these figures, but perhaps someone has a more accurate production history.

Interesting how you pick your friends and vise versa.
Talk to Marc and Andreas frequently after all these years.
Andreas will be visiting later this month and a few years back Marc visited while we installed a Perkins Prima turbo diesel in his 88".
The best thing about this marque isn't always the vehicles, it's sometimes the people who dare to own them!

Marc is good people.

The production numbers are in James Taylor's the original series one book. When I get back I will look. A copy of that book is a necessity for anyone restoring a series I.

Anyway, hijack off. Good luck with the sale. If I had the space, I would buy it. For those considering it, I will say that, unlike the 109 SW and 110, there is nothing to rust other than the bulkhead and chassis (and the breakfast which has already been galvanized). It will be an undertaking to restore as parts are harder to find than SII/SIII, but other than stuff like the interior door trim, it looks complete. Doors are galvy framed, there are no t-pieces etc. all of the steel trim (most of which is painted on the green truck) is galvanized (or maybe sheridized I forget).

Offer ended...

Everyone:
Am going to end this offer until we can do some research.

My wife needs a newer car and we were going to use the 107 Wagon money and buy her a newish ride.

Thanks for all your comments and input.
When I talked to some people at MAR 2004 or 2005, they told me the 2 were worth about $30,000 in Europe, but I didn't believe them. Perhaps these numbers were more realistic after all.

If evilfij could post the production numbers, we'll see just how rare they are and if they are better.

Am also going to call Phil Bashall and see what he thinks, because he may have been in on the MAR conversation don't remember exactly who was in on the conversation.

Thanks again,

Wow that is extremely tempting, almost to the limit of my ability to resist.

Offer ended!

I spoke to Phil Bashall who is going to list them on the Dunsfold site.
He advised me they were listed for much less then they are worth.
They would sell on ebay UK for almost twice the price listed here.
We'll see, that sounds like a lot of money...

I paid $16k for a nice, partially restored 107 a few years ago, and then sold it for $24k after putting a bunch of work in to it. Mine was the last one for sale in the past few years. The other was a perfect, unmollested truck for around $15k (the grey one).

Here was mine: http://www.defendersource.com/forum/...&highlight=107

I think your price is fair for a US truck - the running one. The parts truck is probably another $8k at least.

So much sadness, but I understand. Let us know if it comes back up for sale here? Thanks.

Thanks...

Appreciate all the positive comments.

The link to the pictures of the fixed up 107 Wagon were awesome.

It was Mike VanCuren who encouraged me do do something with these two.
I miss his friendship.

- can remember passing on this truck at 4K, and wolfs at 7K - hope you get 30K. They are great trucks with lots of cool features - just put 1100 miles on mine - with a good 100 miles offroad. I probably have a spare middle bench too.

Not sure what research you need to do but here is some more info: The RHD home market trucks are the rare ones - they sold very few because they attracted a high tax. As you pointed out they made far more LHD export models - (632,1283, and 1618) compared to home market trucks (66,53 and 120)

Ike, thanks for the data.
Were the numbers all 107s or just the 5 door wagons?

Is the bench for a 107 which is different from a 109...

107s

Robert,
Those are just the 107 SWs - and those numbers dont include all the CKD, RHD export 107 SWs etc etc. So there are more SW than I listed. The bench is different but a 109 could work in a pinch. The numbers I posted are broken up by year 56,57,58 There were even a very small few delivered in 59 but they follow the 58 number sequence.
