1975 LAND ROVER 101 FC - £15,995
Land Rover® 101 Forward Control GS *200TDI* (KYC)
For sale, through JOHN BROWN 4X4 LTD, Land Rover® 101 Forward Control in Drab Olive (1975).
Diesel 2495cc. MOT exempt. Tax exempt. Recent Canvas. Recent Tyres.
Here we have for sale a 12v, RHD 101 Forward Control Soft-top in Drab Olive. This 101 has been converted to the popular 200TDI engine, giving similar power to the original V8 unit with far superior economy and reliability.
Externally, the vehicle survives in goops condition and has many of the desirable features one would expect to see on a good 101 - the pioneer tools to the front, vintage plates, bridging plate, recent canvas, the new set of tyres and rear mudflaps. The bodywork is straight and well presented.
The interior is also fairly standard - the front cabin is of typical 101 type, with a pair of standard-type front seats, but again is well presented and tidy. The rear is unfitted barring a load mat to the floor, but could easily house bench seats for £295 to make this a seven seater vehicle. The rear tailgate is side opening for easy loading of items and passengers.
Out on the road, the 200TDI engine gives similar performance to the V8, whilst providing increased economy and reliability for more regular use. The engine pulls well and the driving experience is better than one may imagine for such a large vehicle. An immobiliser has been fitted too, to prevent battery drainage.
In summary, if you are looking for a 12v RHD, soft top 101 which looks as good as a V8 but drives with similar power and far superior economy then this is certainly worth a look. With classic insurance and MOT and tax exemption, this should prove cheap to run in the longer term.
