1967 Station Wagon 109

Post by conrad1468 » Sat Aug 26, 2017 7:47 pm

Hello Gang,
I picked up a 1967 Series 109 Station Wagon. 4 speed, 2.25 Diesel. Rebuilt engine from Rovers North engine has 3k miles. The truck has been sitting since 1995.

The frame has some pretty nasty rust towards the front and rear. The center and outriggers are solid. The bulk head needs some rust repair. A little welding and TLC we should be good.

Lots more to learn. It'll be a fun project. So many knobs so little time!!

The D2 towed it pretty good. He wasn't too happy!!

Nice score. You will never again have clean hands, spare time or extra cash. Welcome to series truck ownership.
Diesel powered engines and parabolic leaf springs. These are a few of my favorite things.

Series Guy,
That's the story of my life!!! ha ha!!

I took a little closer look when I got home. The bulkhead is pretty rusted. I haven't had a chance to tear into it yet. But there will be lots of patches on it while I save up for a new one or find the unicorn of a rust free used bulkhead.

When I get more time. I'll post some pictures. It's going to be a long process but worth it in the end.
