    I'm spending a couple years working at the US Embassy in Chile and I came across this 1964 2a 109 truck for sale. I had been looking for an early Defender to take home, but I couldn't ignore this beauty. Original motor, original era power steering and brake servo upgrade (we think), and enough benches in back to haul a squadron. My local expert here thinks this was originally a Chilean Air Force truck, as the mods are identical to his known FACh truck, of which there were only a few. It's my daily driver right now. New upholstery is coming soon, followed by some fresh paint. After that, it will remain stock until I take it home to the US in a few years.

    Hello old friends!
    After more years than I can count, I'm not only back on the forums, I'm reunited with my III RHD! Over the last 5-6 years, I was in some pretty urban areas. I had my Rover in Washington DC, but it needed so much work that I rarely drove it. Then, I had to put it into storage (IE: parents' garage). Now, we're out West and it was just shipped out. Before putting it into storage, I had a lot of work done and while it was under my dad's supervision he had even more done. It's running (mostly) great and it's just so wonderful to have it back in my life! I'd forgotten how much fun it is to drive. .... of course, it still conforms to the rules of my Rover Universe. The second I buy something cosmetic or comfort-related, something mechanical is guaranteed to break. ... when it came off the truck last week, I started it up and realized the starter (interestingly it was brand new) was spinning and spinning. It'll catch eventually, but it's defiantly bad. The great folks at RN were kind enough to RMA it and hopefully I'll be able to swap it this weekend before we get 8-12" of snow.

    Left the mid-Atlantic about three years ago for a west cost adventure. I'd planned to ship my rover out but we figured out quickly that we weren't going to stay there for long. We were on our way back East and in this strange year and time we decided, whimsically, to relocate to Montana. We can work from anywhere, and life in the mountains felt a little better right now. So I shipped the Rover out and the pus is I get to drive it to my ski instructing side gig

    Here is my late Fathers, owned from new 1971 Series IIA. It has the original gas/petrol engine which has finally been considered ran in now that it has 460k miles on it! I learnt how to drive in this on our farm way back when. My Father passed away four years ago so I had it shipped here to Palm Springs where I live up in the desert. It is a real blast to be driving it again now that I have done a few mods, soft top, unleaded conversion, heat shielding, etc.Click image for larger version.

    So here is my 64 109. I've owned it for 14 years. Previous owner did a body off restoration, bought a new 2.5 running gear from Rover. Trany, transfer case and overdrive.Vehicle was a unfinished project when I bought it. It was finished and has been a daily driver since. I live in the upper Mohave Desert in California outside the Sierra Nevada's, so area's to explore are unlimited!
