101GS 18K OBO fire sale

Hey guys,

The client that bought the Red 101 a couple months ago has come on some very ruff times and asked me to fire sale his 101. It's up on ebay with a buy it now of 18K but for the D90 forum I can $17,000. He really needs it closed and sold by Monday. Please contact me is your interested.

This 101 is in amazing condition with approximately 40,000 miles on it. It would make an amazing base truck for your dream expedition rig or an ideal compnay promotional rig. Truck was originally purchased by Town of Manchester VT in 2002 with 37,200 miles. It was a forest fighting Rover for the Town of Manchester.

Truck has been professionally maintained and housed in heated fire station in 2002. Truck has a new intake manifold and 4 barrel carburetor, original 3.5L V8 engine and full canvas top. We just had T Congleton Racing and Restoration go over the 101. They stated it is one of the finest best running 101′s in existence. This 101 is also capable of doing over 60+ unlike those sluggish Unimogs you may also be thinking of. Don’t miss this opportunity to buy an exceptional and extremely rare beast!They may look like a Unimog but they drive like a Range Rover. They also make great expedition rigs, beach rigs, farm vehicles, or any other mission you can imagine.



101 info

Only 2,600 where ever produced. Parts are easy to source as its mostly series, and range rover parts.
This 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 Tonne. The vehicle was designed to be easily transported by air; the positioning of the 3.5 litre 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.

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 inch × 16 inch tyre. To cope with the extra height above the ground, the wheels feature an unusual feature for a Land Rover (but used for many years on the much older and similar Mercedes Unimog S404); a flange around the centre of the wheel has an embossed tread pattern forming a step for the crew when entering the cab, otherwise named a wheel-step. These are the rarest of the Land Rovers. They may look like a Unimog but they drive like a Range Rover. They also make great expedition rigs, beach rigs, farm vehicles, or any other mission you can imagine.

Engine Specs

3.5L Petrol V8

The Rover V8 engine is a compact V8 internal combustion engine with aluminium cylinder heads and cylinder block, originally designed by General Motors and later re-designed and produced by Rover in the United Kingdom. It has been used in a wide range of vehicles from Rover and other manufacturers since its British debut in 1967. Delivering 130hp and 16-17mpg with a 60mph cruise speed.

So I take it the Firehouse 101GS didn't sell? I just received a Ebay second chance offer to buy it, my last bid stands.

Or is the ebay offer BS?

I have a serious longing for a 101 now. Saw a 1994 BMY this morning on my way to work. It was 100% bad ass. Guy picked it up at an Army auction for $5k. Cool truck but overkill. The 101 is ideal for me. I'd like to find a rust/dent free example with the ambulance or Comms-shelter config so I can convert it into a camper.
