This 101 is just not getting the use that I had intended, city living is not suiting me owning this type of vehicle.

Vehicle is in Edinburgh, Scotland.

I bought the vehicle in July 2012 and I've enjoyed owning it but it deserves much more than I can give it.


Vehicle details: Land Rover 101 Forward Control, 4 Stretcher Ambulance, 12 Volt, Right Hand Drive, Manual Gearbox
Registration Details: 72 GF 44 / ATO609Y - Date into Service 17/08/82 - Cast 19/05/98 with mileage 33044. Current Mileage is (update in the next few days). MOT'd til April 2015 (#). Taxed to 31 October 2014. (#, MOT is due on the 23rd April 2014, it is booked in to be tested in early April and I envisage selling it with a full years MOT)


The previous owner did a “no expense spared” conversion on it spending around £20k.
It is in excellent mechanical condition with a very good chassis, it was fully undersealed in September 2012. 
It has done just over 15,000 miles since the 300Tdi professional engine conversion - full details below (from the previous owners advert):

_________________________________________



Brand New 300Tdi (Defender Spec) Diesel Engine fitted at 33600 miles.


Professional Conversion by Roger at Zeus Engineering Exeter (costing over £13,000 in 2003) includes the following:
Zeus 300Tdi Timing Gear kit (replacing the 300Tdi drive belt - a must if the vehicle is to be used in arduous dusty conditions)
Zeus Bell-housing conversion
Modified and re-cored Radiator

Reconditioned Gearbox and upgraded Transfer box

Power Steering


Other Modifications:
Allisport Turbodiesel Intercooler

Zeus 101 Disk Brake Conversion Front and Rear

Michelin XZL tyres (very little mileage since new and have massive tread)

Halogen Headlamp Conversion

Batteries in internal compartment behind the passenger seat fitted with Master cut-off switches

NoiseKiller Accoustics Engine Blanket and Bell Housing Blanket, ACTech Quilt over engine cover.
Inertia Reel Seatbelts
Defender Front Seats

Leather Steering Wheel


Camper Conversion including: 
Dometic 3 Way (Gas, 12v DC and 240v) Fridge
Twin Burner Gas Hob with Grill
Stainless Steel Sink - with 12v pumped tap
“Rock and Roll” style ¾ bed which stows into a seat (this is a standard VW camper item).

Mains electric hook-up for campsites - with European converter
Lots of storage space.


Fiamma Carrybike fitted to rear door (will carry two Bikes)

Fiamma F4i, 3m Awning with 3 sided ‘Zip’ Privacy room (equivalent to a 3m x 2.5m tent)

Garmin™ Low Profile Remote Antenna mounted on roof (suitable for any Garmin GPS with MCX connector)


Parts replaced since conversion:
Front and Rear Propshafts; Front Diff Oil Seal and Pinion Bearings (despite which it still has the 101 transmission growl on overrun! )

Transfer Box - Rear Oil seal

New Speedo Cable
Brake and Clutch Reservoirs

Stainless Steel Fuel tank and associated hoses (Bespoke item via the club 2011)

Diesel Lift pump
Brake Servo - defender conversion and Brake Master Cylinder Conversion (also from the club).

70Ah Lucas Battery (April 2012)
____________________________________________
I have fitted a solar panel which helps with running the fridge and keeping the lights on when you're away from civilisation



I am looking for offers around £9500 for the truck, but I'm open to sensible offers if you view the vehicle.

Please text me on 07932 803 289 or email [email protected]

Honest note: I have had a bit of a problem with the High/Low jumping out of High, I've been told this is to do with bad selector cable routing, I have a stop fitted to keep the vehicle permanatly in High. There is nothing wrong with the transfer box but the next owner may/will need to look at the selector routing.

In a rather surprising twist the 101 is still on the market.

The other buyer put a small deposit down and now he seem to be uninterested. :?
