Deleted the old add and updated and replaced Land Rover 101 Vampire Overland $35,000 obo

this Vampire has been transformed from a stock 1976 Land Rover 101 FC Vampire into the perfect base for Overland vehicle.

All work was performed by Congleton Services of Milton VT in 2015.

During the build the Vampire was stripped of its drivetrain and ancillaries, and abrasive blasted axels, chassis, and body underside. After achieving clean metal numerous coats of 2K primer where applied and then top coated with black high gloss enamel to encourage moisture repelling. A new Rear cross member was also installed at this time.All of this corrected any rust issues and set up the vehicle to be as rust resistance as possible.

The Vampire was fitted from factory with a 24v system. Over the years the system was added to. Congelton service cleaned up wiring in the battery box, front cab area, front grille area and rear cross member areas. Also corrected where cleaning, fixing, and rerouting of numerous circuits. Many where also redone and replaced with safer fused versions.

For drivability the original 3.9 engine was replaced with a 4.9 zero balanced engine matted to an LT230 transfer box and ZF4HP22 automatic transmission. Transforming the an old army Rover into a modern beast. Auxiliary coolers have also been fitted to the front of the Vampire for transmission and engine cooling. Currently getting a full tune up and brakes bleed. Inside upgraded front seats, radio with speakers, fan, all set up on ARB style switch. The rear is lined with berliner and ready to be outfitted to what ever mission you can think of.

Highlights 12K Warn winch

Catamount Stage two 4.9 10:5:1 compression. Custom Erson cam Forged piston, forged rods, heads ported and polished. 340hp, 350tq.

LT230 transfer case 1:2 ratio ZF 4HP22 Transmission with upgraded low gear clutch packs

Twib setrab oil coolers, with 8 an braided lines

Complete stainless duel pipe exhaust Custom Spicer driveshafts

Custom E brake housing

All new drivetrain parts and sensors, genuine ignition wires, cooling hoses and ancillaries, and fuel filters.

Holly 4 barrel carb with electric choke and polished big bore intakes

New rear shocks and polly bump stops Complete underbody abrasive blast and paint with epoxy primer and enamel

This is a very rare Rover and would make an amazing overland camper! Please feel to call 802-324-3370 Always happy to talk Rover’s any time.

It needs a tune up and new batteries. Was not that loud when running.
