… like this one! It’s a smart-looking 1976 example that appears to be in original condition, and comes with a long MOT.
A 101 isn’t for the faint hearted. Just getting in and out requires an impressive feat of agility, and the fuel consumption of the 3.5-litre V8 is colossal. But then again, this vehicle was designed to hauling artillery guns across boggy battlefields, so what would you expect?
In civilian hands its perfect for load-lugging, dominating off-road courses or just touring the shows in the summer. It may feel vast, but in reality its shorter than a long-wheelbase Land Rover and no longer than many family estates, so you’ll probably find room for it somewhere. But whatever you use it for, cherish it; values are set to rise.
See the current issue of LRO for a 6-page guide to buying a 101, written by our resident expert Peter Galilee. You’ll find detailed advice on how to assess the whole vehicle in detail, particularly the engine, transmission, steering, electrics, bodywork, structure and trim.
