This truck was purchased 2004 from P.A.Blanchord of England, they made modifications to the vehicle at my request and shipped it to me. Since then I have used the truck only on occasion where i needed a pickup truck to haul something. It has been garaged daily. The vehicle was manufactured as an ambulance for the British Military. and converted to a pick up truck by Blanchard. It has left-hand drive, 4wheel drive, low and high range settings. It also was improved with a later model transmission and transfer case. Thus it has synchro in 2nd ,3rd, and 4th gears and a higher gear ratio to improve top speed. This is a 4 cylinder 2.25 liter petrol engine model, 12Volt system. It has a Safari roof on the pickup cap. The vehicle was repainted RAF blue and all galvanized fittings were re-galvanized. When I got the vehicle in 2004 it had 12,515 miles on it. The odometer now registers about 19,800 miles.The vehicle has been regularly serviced and well cared for. I have title for the truck. is in St. Louis Missouri Asking $25,000 o.b.o. Ask for other photos via email

I’ve been around this truck for years. Fantastic truck, very meticulous owner! It’s the one I would want to buy if I was looking for a 109.

Nice truck.

What is the top speed and highway cruising speed?

How is rust? Bulkhead? Door? Rear crossmember?

Undercarriage condition?

Thanks.

You might get up to 60 on a downhill.... Beautiful truck, wish I could bring it home, GLWS.
