Hi,
After a great deal of thought I’ve decided to part with my second 101 in order to justify the purchase of a Scammell Explorer!

I purchased this vehicle about 18 months ago with the intention of converting to coil springs and building a new camper body for it similar in dimensions to the radio body vehicle. Realistically I just don’t have the time and I would rather someone else gets the project.

OK, so here we have a 101 that started out life as a RHD ambulance, it went into service in ’81 as 75GJ64 according to the vehicle record book that I have it underwent a disposal inspection in March 1998 which I guess is when it came out of service. It was purchased by a haulage contractor in south Yorkshire who crudely cut the ambulance body down to a pick up and used it to move mobile phone masts up to remote sites, once this contract finished it lay in their yard for a number of years until I got my hands on it!

It was never registered after leaving the army although I do have a ‘Vehicle Record Book’ which lists lots of info and all the service records for the vehicle. I’m not sure what you need to get it road registered but I figured it wouldn’t be that difficult. Both chassis plates are still in place.

The condition of the vehicle (As best I can describe it!) is as follows:

Engine + Gearbox
According to the service record it had a new engine 17/8/95 at 29508(kms?) it has now done around 40000kms (From memory – forgot to check) so the engine should still be pretty fresh! Unfortunately it doesn’t turn over! I’m not sure what is wrong and I haven’t tried to investigate the problem, please purchase the vehicle on the basis that the engine is scrap, and if you get some good parts off it then that’s a bonus. The gearbox goes in and out of all gears although I have not been able to check it any further due to the engine problem.

Wheels + Tyres
Bar Grips all round with what looks like good tread (Never seen a new one!) no spare with the vehicle.

Bodywork
The cab is complete with everything still in place although a bit grubby, eberspacher looks complete to me. Obvious cut down rear body. Battery cupboard in missing one of the battery slides, no batteries! A few of the lights are missing (See Pics) Door bottoms are pretty good and the tops apart from the glazing channels look alright. I’d say that they would tidy up easily enough. One of the passenger door hinges is broken. The fuel tank was off the vehicle when I bought it so I'm guessing it needs repair or replacement.

Chassis
I had a quick look yesterday and it looks ok to me, rear x-member appears to be sound. If you wish me to have a close poke about then let me know!

Axles and Steering
Obviously hard to say without being able to drive it, they look ok. The chrome swivels are ok although there were a couple of spots where it is starting to go a little. Everything complete and all there, the steering works although I couldn’t check for play.



Ok so there you go, basically it’s a complete vehicle with all parts including the compressor and eberpacher with a knackered engine. If I don’t get what I am looking for then I shall replace the engine and MOT it, it will then be a lot more money so grab the bargain whilst you can!

I’m in East Ayrshire (Near to Muirkirk - KA18 3NL) about 35min from the main M74 Motorway down south. Please contact me if you with to view the 101 or if you have any further questions.

My email address is [email protected] or PM me for phone numbers! I have more pictures available if you wish me to email them to you.

Looking for £1000 which I think is a fair price given that this is a complete vehicle.

Thanks,
Duncan

If anyone can get this to the east coast of the US I would buy it in a second!

Good luck with the sale.
