Old Land Rover 101

I have my Defender, my sister has her Discovery.............

We aways like the old pictures of the Old Land Rover 101. I know this has nothing to do with Defenders.....BUT how much does one of these trucks cost? Are they legal in the US?

We were tossing around how much one of these cost........and we realized that we could not find a quick answer.......

I looked into this seriously last year.

All of them are over 25 years old so legal to import.

Costs. Depends on model and condition. About $5000 will get you a runner. For a decent one you're looking at around $8K+. Then you've got to get it here and pay taxes. Not super cheap but not super expensive though.

I have two of them. They are a lot of fun but not cheap at all. I paid 8k for one and more for the other but it was a package deal with my d90 so I never figured out what I was paying for each.

Parts are expensive and vary in the degree of difficulty to track them down. New parts are not being producted except for specific problem parts that the 101 club has made.

Any questions PM me.

Ted

I looked all over and all I found was this: http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/car/141261688.html

That's a Series III 109.

We're talking about 101s.
Like this: http://nnin.net/gallery2/v/defender/...e_lhd.jpg.html

That's the one I almost bought last year. Still kicking myself.

Unemployment. My father and I were going in on it together and both went unemployed at the same time killing the budget. IIRC he wanted 3500 for it, or about $6K. Then you have to pay to get it here. We were hoping to have it in the driveway for under $10K or so. I'll kick myself forever for not buying it.

I'd hardly call that a poor decision to not buy it... I passed on buying a FJ40 in mint condition when i was in college, it was in perfect shape, of course i would have spent all my savings on it... i would have not been able to eat for my final two semesters but i'd have a nice fj, the chioce was tough, but i'm still alive...

Ok, I'll be pissed for a while for not being able to buy it. I know there's nothing I could do at the time. They're still out there and come up for sale quite often. Maybe in another year or two.

There's someone on the 101 mailing list that has an Ambi for sale right now. 4000 Of course, it's in the UK but they're still out there. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/101/message/13088

FC101 - Hell Yeah!!!

101's are awesome!
There are several here in the States, but many more that can be imported if you really want one.
Here are a few sites for pricing information:
101 Club Click on "small-ads" for the classifieds.
Milweb.net Click on "Vehicle Park" then "Landrovers"
Here's a site with great info and photos: 101 picture zone
Awesome camper: Dutch Cheddar
And here's my all-time favorite 101 (belonging to Alan Ottley): Roverworx

George,

I would like to know where that place in DC is too! If you are ever through Columbia look me up.

I bought my D90 new over 11 years ago..........sold it to a frind 4 years ago.......and a few weeks ago bought it back. My wife and I just love this truck. So I am reletively new to this site.......but not to the D90.

Trevor - where in Columbia are you? I am in King's contrivance. Mine is a Black 95 with a grey hardtop on it. How about yours? Hope to see you arround........

I don't have a d90 yet, I just moved down here and live in thunderhill, i'm in the search for a 90 or maybe a series 3... I had to leave the fj40 in NJ so i don't have anything to wheel with...

There's nothing in DC unless you count running over ricers on the beltway. Closest is GWNF/paragon/trails in southern VA. You may be thinking of the trails by the old rover HQ which are long closed. Trevor, there are a couple of series rigs for sale locally and there's always a RRC or two around if you want a beater.

yea i've seen a couple of series around, on my commute to work there is a guy near gaithersburg who has several of them in his driveway... no for sale signs though... I think i'm gonna focus on a 90 mostly, i'm pretty sure the series will handle like the fj40, and man was that rough...

To be on-topic, i'd love to get to look over a 101...

nah I have been in both the series is smoother, however the Fj has more power. The series had a stronger will to achieve the FJ needed more abuse

Follow-up Post:

my defender doesnt ride much better than either just a little more quieter
