image40

"OLE BLUE" DEFENDER 110 - 200TDI

This Defender 110 is finished in classic Land Rover Marine blue with a Limestone roof and matching steel wheels. It has updated LED lights all round, chunky BFGoodrich M/T tires, and a Heritage style front end. Another great reason to have a Land Rover built in a foreign country is under the hood. As the USA was never blessed with the diesel power plants and as we all know, diesel provides the best torque to get you through or over anything. It’s equipped with the sought after and legendary 200Tdi engine, with a five speed manual transmission, regarded by many in the Land Rover world as there best ever engine produced which has earned a tough-as-nails reputation. It has covered a very low 99k miles with its factory diesel engine that sports an inter-cooled turbo boost efficient design for improved longevity and overall performance, which has made this a highly desired engine over the years. Its simplicity and ease of maintenance, as well as being powerful and economical makes it ideal vehicle for off road adventures, trails, around town and on the highway. 


This 110 is in very good mechanical condition. The engine pulls and drives like you would expect from a 200Tdi. The frame (chassis) has been well looked after and it is in good overall condition with no welds or rot present. The doors and bulkhead also show very well for its age and are all complete without rot. The 5-speed manual moves through the gears well and it has no problem running through traffic and it cruises easily at highway speeds. Shift action is light, the clutch take-up is clean, and with power steering and front disc brakes, it feels quite competent on or off the pavement. With power steering and front disc brakes reminds you that go-anywhere also means being easy to drive and enjoy. A new rear crossmemeber and fuel pump has recently been installed. It rides, drives and steers very nicely; it sits on classic Land Rover 16” steel wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich M/T tires. Inside the 110 has classic cloth interior that can fit 12 passengers, up front it can seat 6 passengers and in the rear cargo bench seats can also fit 6, all complete with seatbelts. The Defender 110 follows the grand tradition of tough-as-nails Land Rovers and you recognize it from the moment this one comes into view. It looks ready to take on the toughest terrain. The Heritage front end pays homage to iconic Land Rovers Series models of the past. This is a legendary 4x4 that has both style and character. So if you want to go anywhere and look great doing so, this is the Defender to have. Overall a very stylish and refreshed Defender 110 that’s ready to be enjoyed on the trails or on the urban streets.

1977 LAND ROVER 101 FORWARD CONTROL

image49

"BLITZ-KRIEG" 101 FC

Here we have the privilege to offer this 1977 Land Rover 101 Forward Control vehicle for sale on consignment for a Local Land Rover collector and enthusiast. Unfortunately the time has come for our client to thin his heard of Land Rovers, and fortunately for you this one is ready for a new adventure to be had. So we are delighted to present for sale this fine 101, in the best possible configuration; 12 volt, right hand drive, 3.5 V8 and soft-top. Between 1975 and 1978, Land Rover built 2669 examples of the 101 Forward Control truck for the British Ministry of Defense. Powered by a 3.5-liter Rover V-8, the 101 has four-wheel drive, a vacuum-operated differential lock, 12 and 24-volt electric systems, and enough towing capacity for artillery cannons When the British replaced their 101 fleet with Defender-based Land Rover Wolfs and Pinzgauers, private citizens made sure to save as many 101s as they could. This 101 was stationed in Germany and serviced in the British Army before being released from service and imported to NC by its now current own. Once onboard, the seating position feels weird at first, mostly because the steering column is almost vertical and the four-speed gearbox is tilted forwards, so the shifter is pointing straight ahead instead of upwards. Other than that, it’s as simple as it gets, all you need to remember is to steer later because you're sitting on top of the front wheels instead of behind them. Despite its size and appearance the military-spec tires, the 101 feels just as light on its feet as any old Land Rover. It might be made of slightly thicker metal all around, but that 3.5 V-8 has more than enough torque to get it through an obstacle. If you pull the magic switch after you already pushed the red lever forward to get into low ratio, a light on the dash informs you that the inter-axle differential is locked. That makes your job even easier, but with a minimum ground clearance of 10 inches at the axles and super short overhangs at both ends, there's no chance of getting into trouble. Power comes from the venerable Rover 3.5-liter V8 in a cab-over-engine arrangement. It runs through a four-speed manual (LT95 gearbox) and a two-speed transfer case to a full-time four-wheel-drive system. Other than new seats this rig still has a very mil-spec appearance in the cabin, and in the rear there is 4 individual seats with lap belt.


The original 3.5l V8 gas engine comes with overdrive, High Ratio Gears, Parabolic Springs. This vehicle is in excellent condition as shown by the photos. Many period correct features survive including front mounted pioneer tool kit, expedition jerry cans, front and rear NATO hitches, fire extinguishers, front and rear Nokken Winch combine to make this a great example of the Land Rover 101. The interior is also in great condition with added luxury of radio/cd player. A high ratio gearbox & overdrive gears really make for a great driving experience. The original petrol V8 starts on the first turn of the key and leads to a free revving V8 rumble. It really does drive well and cruises nicely on any road. Odometer shows 45,xxxkm, which is around 28k miles. Out on the road this 101 does not disappoint – the silky smooth V8 gives a seamless, powerful drive and a very good turn of speed. The combination of a whisper quiet, free revving V8 mated to the high ratio gearbox and overdrive equates to a superb driving experience for such a big brute, this vehicle really flies and is an utter joy to drive. It really does sound great too, and fires up with the first turn of the key. If you are looking for a really nice 101 in the most popular spec then this is certainly worth considering. The bodywork is in great shape; the tires are new Ironman Mud Terrains and are all recently fitted and in great condition. There has been a recent service invoice for $4,600+. Most recent service items included a check up of fuel and ignition systems, a complete brake overhaul with new brake shoes, drums, backing plates, front and rear hub seals, wheels cylinders and a complete system bleed. Front sway bar bushings where replaced. A full fluid drain and fill front and rear diff fluid, gearbox, T-case, swivel housing and all universals joints greased. The canvas top is in a good condition but a brand new Exmoor Trim top is on order and will be fitted with the sale. This 101 served most of its time in British Army and like most ex-military vehicles they where serviced and maintained to military precision. If you are looking for a classic Land Rover with lots of TLC carried out then this is a fine example. With the rarity of these vehicles increasing, especially original V8 101's it should prove to be a sound investment.

Interesting 101 Fun Facts

Thirty-one 101s were converted by Land Rover with artistically styled body shells for the 1995 Sylvester Stallone film Judge Dredd. So Land Rover is supposedly the world’s only surviving vehicle manufacturer in the year 2139 when the film is set, and the green oval logo can be seen on the side of the vehicles, known as “City Cabs”. Several of these prop vehicles still exist in drivable condition and are often seen at Land Rover events. 


The vehicle was primarily produced to meet the Army’s requirement for a gun tractor, and was designed to tow a field gun (the L118 Light Gun) with a ton of ammunition and other equipment in the rear load space, giving it the alternative name of the Land Rover One Tone. The vehicle was designed to be easily transported by air; the positioning of the 3.5 Rover V8 engine beneath and to the rear of the cab eliminates the bonnet at the front, making the vehicle more or less cuboid thus reducing unused space in transport aircraft. Of concern was the payload and limited stability, particularly when crossing an incline.


The official name of 101 Forward Control is derived from the vehicle’s 101-inch (2,565 mm) wheelbase, and the position of the driver, above and slightly in front of the front wheels which used a fairly large 9.00 × 16 inch tire. By the late 1990s, the 101s were decommissioned by the Ministry of Defense (MOD) and were replaced with Defenders and Pinzgauer vehicles. Many 101s have entered into private ownership and there is a thriving owners club supporting these sourcing spares and providing technical support.
