As for the conversion, the chassis is essentially a pickup, then they would add the various rear tubs depending on application. So remove ambulance tub, and replace with pickup tub. The reason it can be soft or hard top is the lack of the second row doors as the top hinge needed a hard top mount.

The ex ministry of defense is nice because the new build had different specs to include frame undercoat, removable frame cross members, oil cooler, 2" higher ride height, heavier duty cooling system, gusseted axles, black out tail lamps, dual gas tanks with valving accessible while driving, etc. etc.
nice long time ago I owned 109 exmod

and 5 years ago series one 80 (picture with our previous OA 66')

but don't talk to me about Land Rover, I can not count how much I got, but now I'm more Defender from Series

"FWD" FOUR WHEELS DRIVE STANDARD TRACTOR TRUCK TYPE B (1917).

- Wisconsin gasoline engine of 390 cid, 4 cylinders
- 4 wheels drive
- Cotta transmission 3 gears
- Brakes on the 4 wheels - maximum speed 25 Km/h
- Steel Wheels
- Full rubber bandage on wheels (no pneumatic tires)
- Covered plate back-body for transport of munitions
- Price at the time: 4600 USD.

1912: creation of the “Four Wheel Drive Car Company” in Clintonville (Wisconsin) by Otto Zachow and William Besserdich after having built an experimental truck of 2 T.
1914: production of many trucks of 3 & 5 T.
After a conclusive test, the American army bought 15,000 FWD in 4x4 for the
First World War. The famous model B, built since 1912, comprised a four-
cylinder motor, one limps Cotta with three reports/ratios, its speed on the road
was 25 km/h. During the 1° World war, this truck was also produced by
KISSEL, MITCHELL and FIRST, in order to face the needs. Its payload was 3
tons on any ground, and 5 tons on road. On the whole, 15,000 models B trucks
were delivered to the American Army. Then the production turned to civil uses
until in the Twenties. The FWD of the type B were used in 1916 in Mexico by the American Army,
within the framework of the operation “captures of Pancho VILLA”.
1917: William Besserdich leaves the company to found the mark “Oshkosh”
1942: in this period of effort of war, the firm manufactures much for the army
1950: the range extends to road tractors 6X4 for long distance with renown
models such as 'Tractionneer' and 'Teracruzer'.
1960: change of denomination for “FWD Corporation”.

My '79 CJ5 which is sadly no longer with us. Bought because of the fun we had 4 wheeling on Nantucket in a rented YJ, going to work in her made each day an adventure. I could always find her in a parking lot.

My daily driver for the last 12 years is a 1988 HJ-61 LandCruiser. My son drives a 1991 LJ-78 LandCruiser.

I also have a 1977 FJ-40 in pretty original condition. Just needs some work. I've owned it for 25 years.Click image for larger version

Oooooh. TRD PRO. A unicorn in the Toyota cult. Nice score Marty. Didn't know that you were a Cruiser-head too.

PS:. The sewing machine just sits there, mocking me to try it someday.

I'm really not a cruiser, more of a wannabe I guess . We were going down to the dealer to by a new truck but someone just traded this in with only 3,700 miles on it . So we got this instead . I do miss my old Land Cruiser . I like your old Fj-40 .

Thumbs up 1973 Pinzgauer 710K Swiss Army Radio Truck

This was a great and unique off road truck that is reasonably priced, easy to work on, parts are available in US. It has an in line 4cyl air cooled gas engine, arm-strong steering, 5 speed trans, 2 speed transfer case, portal axles and locking hydraulic differentials that are all operated from the drivers spot. The picture and video are from NW Mogfest a few years ago. They dug a new pit with a track hoe every year for us to exercise the trucks. I sold it last year because my boat was taking up all my "time"
