1971 109 Series IIa Station Wagon

My station wagon is up for sale. Its a suffix H vehicle number, last of the IIas.

There are also approximately a gazillion photos of pretty much everything Ive done to it, just ask if you want to see anything in particular.

I bought it in late 2014. It had failed an MOT due to chassis and side frame rust, but the bodywork, bulkhead and interior were in good condition (unlike most of the other SWs I had viewed) so I thought it was worth saving.

Since then Ive done a fair bit of work to it. Heres the summary:

New Richards galvanised chassis (dual front fuel tank outriggers, oil cooler mount and steering damper mount added over standard). Engine mounts to suit 200tdi - can also a take a 2.25 with appropriate mounts, no chassis cutting required.
New multileaf road springs
200tdi (ex-Range Rover), timing belt and idler replaced, crank and cam seals replaced. Series radiator, Mocal oil cooler, 300tdi intercooler, Kenlowe fan, x-eng fan relay (switchable off/auto/on). 200tdi air filter housing.
Full Steve Parker 200tdi conversion exhaust
Early (59) dipstick crashbox (full-syncro box was working when removed and will be included with sale if desired).
New clutch, clutch master, clutch slave and shaft
New Roamerdrive (formerly Roverdrive) overdrive w/tbox dipstick and oil cooler plate (oil is shared with tbox)
Galvanised front panel
Galvanised second row door frames (repaired originals, not the new ones which dont fit)
New front door bottoms
New side frames (all in one sill/b pillar/c pillar peculiar to station wagons) and new side frame cover panels
Galvanised rear door frame
Ex-MOD crate (reconditioned) front axle
New brake master and rear slave cylinders (front slaves were also new due to recon axle)
New brake shoes, pipes and flexi lines all round
Tbox output seals and diff nose seals replaced
Heated windscreens
Modern headlamps (Wipac crystal)
Modern tyres (Michelin Latitude in 7.50 r16 flavour)
External respray in original bronze green and limestone
Wheels blasted and resprayed in not-so-original limestone as I prefer the look

Essentially, all of the usual issues have been sorted, and a few modifications have been made with regular use and reliability in mind. The particular Station Wagon foibles have been addressed - namely the side frames and second row doors, which are almost universally rotten on these.

Its obviously not one for the rivet counter - I wanted it to be everyday usable without detracting too much from the series-ness (hence no LT77, discs, power steering etc). Im sure opinions would vary on how well I achieved this, but for me it struck a good balance. The Roverdrive made a world of difference - unlike a Fairey unit, its silent and can be used in any gear - handy for splitting ratios as well as for dropping revs at cruising speed. We drove it from Scotland to Spain and back (excluding the watery bit) without going deaf or killing each other, which would have been a big ask with the stock gearing sat behind a 200tdi.
It still runs the stock 4.7:1 ratio axle diffs, so when the overdrive isnt engaged the low gears remain suitably low.

If you want more detail on what parts went into the rebuild, youre in luck. Im a massive nerd, so I kept a [url=https://drive.google.com/open?id=0ByAuA0uJDR4IR3ZTRXBJeGJhQnM]spreadsheet of parts purchased[/url]

I tend to buy multiples of consumable parts, so itll come with various spare seals/gaskets etc.

I also kept all the receipts for parts so theres a big ol pile of paperwork to go with it.

A towbar drop plate and towbar electrics are fitted, but since the spare wheel is now back in the original (low) position theres no room for a towball. If required to tow, this can be rectified by swapping the spare wheel mount and blanking plate around to mount the spare higher up on the door.

The roof vents work, and the headlining is all there.

Its done roughly 7k since the rebuild, in that time its been 100% reliable (ok, other than when the old exhaust downpipe failed somewhere in the Pyrenees, but she still got me home!).

Will come with 12 months MOT.

Well looked after and dry stored.

Im looking for £12.5k. Id also consider a part exchange for an interesting project (Series 1, 101 FC, or very early 110 SW).

Thanks for reading, if you lasted this long. Please give me a shout if you have any questions/you want any other pics.
