ECR restored 1967 109 Station with coil chassis and a V8 EFI stainless exhaust upgrade
This ECR restored 109 has come to us from the owner who now lives in PA. The 109 is a project we completed many years ago and we are happy to report that the owner uses and drives the truck like it should be. In fact, the 109 was recently dropped off at ECR so that we could get it ready for the owner's next vacation/road trip to Canada.
The main reason for the 109's visit this time is that it is time for a new exhaust. When we built the truck years ago we installed a standard exhaust system, and as you can see it is starting to rust out. So the owner has decided it is time to install a new stainless system and cure any exhaust issues for good.
So up the Wagon goes and we will gut the entire old system and put it in the scrap pile.
Some time and a lot of bending and tig welding later you can see the fruits of our labor, a custom mandrel bent full stainless steel exhaust system.
The system is as tight to the frame as possible for off road clearance and we have upgraded the hangers from the weak Series style we used way back when to a modern Defender style that will last longer and work better. Everything on the system is stainless steel from the muffler to the hanger brackets, so there will be no more rust issues.
At the rear of the 109 you can see how nice and clean the system looks. It sounds great, doesn't rattle and is out of the way.
While the 109 was with us we did some routine service work and installed a new set of rear mud flaps that keep that vintage vibe going with the Rover. Its a vintage feel until you get behind the wheel and realize this 109 has an EFI 3.9 Rover V8 with an R380 fully synchronized 5 speed and a full time LT230 transfer case!
Here you can see the 109 all set up with a new exhaust, road tested and ready for the owners vacation. This is one of the coolest Rovers we have ever built, and now it is even cooler due to its full stainless steel exhaust system.
If your Series Rover needs a ton of work, or just a little, contact ECR, we'll be glad to help in any way we can.
The solution is simple... ECR.
