I don't think it has restrictors in place. It goes better uphill than my old 110 used too.

It doesn't really like taking off in 2nd gear.

I also picked up a new bench for my shed. It only just fitted. And yes that is a rust free Stage One wagon on the right :D

It's been a while since I have posted. In 6 months of ownership I have still done nothing except put fuel in it and use it for what it was intended.

Plus a bit of general just cruising around.

That is a mint looking ute, I am too tall for one, i am a defender owner currently so don't expect much footspace.
Funnily enough to relate my missus stage one twin cab seems to have more foot space because the gearbox ingresses the cab less.
I am looking to get a 109 version shortly.

No the OKA belongs to the guy I picked up the bench from.

I am 187cms and fit fine in mine.

Sahara Dust. Mine is Sahara Dust.

Yours is a fine looking original Stage 1.

There is a cow cockey near me who has a 120. I see it often. I'd love to buy it.

I would love a 120. Back in 1998 I searched for one and gave up and bought a 110 wagon.

2 weeks later one came up for sale 10kms away :oops:

Back to the 80's

Happened all over the place. Pretty annoying.

You would need to move them to Google Photos or something and relink the images.
