This 109 has undergone much work in recent years and also features a very rare Rover P6 2200TC engine conversion. To my knowledge, its the only S3 version on the road in the UK. In addition, the engine is connected to a 5-speed Defender LT77 gearbox (rebuilt) and Discovery V8 transfer box with 1:2 ratio (rebuilt)
It also features an Ashcroft part-time kit so the 4x4 is easily switchable between 2 or 4 wheel drive.
The standard 2.25 LR engine is also included. It was a runner when removed with a rebuilt Zenith carb. It used no oil and is on 10 thou bearing journals. The original engine mount brackets have not been removed from the chassis. Being half the weight, the Rover P6 engine manages 27mpg on a run and slightly less locally; far better than 12-15mpg from the 2.25 engine.
The chassis is a 1-ton and was fitted before I bought it. The chassis is solid, having being repaired extensively in recent years, including a new rear crossmember.
The bulkhead and footwells are all excellent, as the second row floor and load area floor.
The front screens are heated and it has other extras fitted.
In addition to the interior, I have a set of black vinyl seats included in the sale and other spares. I also have a BMH Certificate for the vehicle.
