    Just bought a 109 as above its not arrived yet but from the pictures I can see a metal box between the front seats, anyone know what It Is for ?. Is the military chassis different to civilian one?,

    It was or is a FFR [Fitted For Radio] and the box between the seats held all the scary 24 volt gubbins etc. Has it been converted to 12 v or is it still 24v? Distributer is VERY different on FFR - as are the plugs.................. you'll also have a weird "convoy" light switch - loads of fun.

    Yes It has been converted to 12v, I can see a rotary switch above the gear levers in the dash board and It has a full canvas but apart from that I cant see anything out of the ordinary. It will be about three weeks before I see It so will get to check what It has still fitted then.
