Land Rover 109 Beach Runner

Glimpses of summer are peaking through the day in at least some parts of the country. We’re not there yet, but these small tastes are more than enough to fuel daydreams about riding out onto the beach and wasting away long days doing a whole lot of nothing. This vehicle from Cool & Vintage, the Land Rover 109 Beach Runner, is built to do just that.

This truck was originally sourced from the Portuguese TV Broadcast company where it had been in use since it was bought in the early 1980s. With only 19,000 miles on it, all of the parts were original and it had been untampered with – including the engine and gearbox – so the auto shop jumped at the opportunity to grab it up. Once they did, they proceeded to completely strip the vehicle down and rebuild it piece by piece, restoring parts that had failed and cleaning those that were still in working condition. In addition to putting it all back together, the Portuguese Land Rover specialists gave it a light matte yellow paint, water and UV resistant seats, as well as a tough trim that was built to take salty water and sandy feet. For sunnier days, they threw on a mohair top to let the ocean breeze flow right through the cabin. If this thing isn’t beach ready, we don’t know what is. Prices for this vehicle are available on request. [Purchase]
