1975 Land Rover 101FC (Forward Control)
Now HERE is something you don't see every day! We're pleased to present this behemoth, 6.2L V8 LS-powered 1975 Land Rover 101 Forward Control RestoMod with a clean NC title.
To say that this truck with leave you transfixed is an understatement. Named for its 101" wheelbase, less than 3,000 of these forward-control legends were built for British military forces, They heroically served various roles as tow rigs for field artillery, as medical wagons, communications vehicles, and utility vehicles – and none were sold to the public, which makes this vehicle an especially rare find. Nearly half of all 101's were built in LHD configuration as this one is, which makes driving in North America that much easier.
This permanently engaged 4-wheel drive truck was stripped to its solid frame and tons of important upgrades were performed by Osprey Custom Cars, the world-renowned Land Rover Defender specialists in Castle Hayne, NC. Finished in classic Land Rover Keswick Green with custom saddle leather-upholstered sport seats and a rugged Raptor-lined floor, it'll make a statement and stand out in any crowd – either on or off-road. The fact that it can also pull a 105mm Howitzer is a pure bonus!
