Land Rover ® 101 Forward Control RHD 12v (KDD)


For sale, Land Rover ® 101 Forward Control General Service in Drab Olive (1975).

MOT Exempt. Tax Exempt. 2.8l Daihatsu Four-Track Diesel Engine. 12v. RHD. New Canvas. 

We are delighted to present for sale this tidy and rare 101 Forward Control, presented in 12v and RHD configuration - the best spec! This vehicle has been retrofitted so rather than sporting the original V8 engine, it has been converted to turbo-diesel, something which was commonly done to improve fuel economy. This diesel conversion is particularly interesting as it uses the highly acclaimed and very reliable Daihatsu Four-Track 2.8l unit. This engine conversion gives good power and torque whilst obtaining better fuel economy than the outgoing V8. 

As the photos show this is a smart example, and still retains lots of the kit one would hope to see on a vehicle such as this - bridging plate, pioneer tools, nato hitch etc etc. The tyres are fairly recent and have lots of tread (and are a matching set!). The canvas is brand new, which really sets off the exterior look - just like all the 101s we sell, she looks the part.

The interior is also nicely appointed with deluxe seats to the front, with deluxe matting to the footwells. The rear houses a set of bench seats, with a rear load mat - another set each side could afford enough seating for the full shoot party if so required.

Out on the road this 101 drives well with its conversion - the low down torque makes this easy to drive at low speed, and it pulls well. As with all 101s, the driving position is commanding and the 101 steering box gives surprisingly light and direct steering control. 

In summary this is a good, useable RHD Forward Control presented in smart condition and ready to be worked or played.
