The Tyne is exactly what 109 should be. Robust, easy to drive, reassuring and workmanlike.
Use regularly by the previous owner for long road trips to the Scottish Highlands for shooting trips, this pickup truck dispels the myth that a Series III diesel is not a usable 4×4.
The gearbox is smooth and precise, the engine hums along with elan and the steering is precise.
No need to fiddle about looking for the gears, this truck drives beautifully. As can be seen from the photos, one or 2 minor points on an otherwise robust chassis could do with minor repairs, and a proper brake service would make this a top-notch everyday driver or a keeper for a Series III or ex-MOD Land Rover enthusiast. Features include: garden gate double height convoy bumper with towing eyes Fairey freewheeling hubs later (and more comfortable) Defender adjustable seats with headrests Cubby box original sliding rear window with aluminium catches hand throttle original wheels rear step with 50 mil towbar canvas tilt with double windows rear lifting handles this vehicle has a 2 tonne towing capacity and a laden 2.68 tonnes
All instruments work perfectly, including the dash lights and gauges Manufactured in April 1971, the vehicle is registered as a Light 4×4 Utility and is classed as a historic vehicle. The chassis number is one of the G series, and the engine number is A series. This vehicle has had only 4 previous owners. The odometer shows 19,736 miles, and we are confident that the vehicle has done 119,736 during its life, which would equate to an average annual mileage of 2400 miles a year! So not really surprising the vehicle drives so well. We offer a door-to-door delivery facility, and ship internationally.
