Slightly Unimog-esque. I wonder is it was manufactured under license like when Harley-Davidson manufactured flat twins during the war.

You'd have loved to hear some of the stories this owner had to tell. Apparently it's really light for its size, and the newer engine he swapped from a Disco is putting out a lot more power.

So he loves nothing more than smoking Civics who try and pass him as the lights turn green.

The only thing he doesn't love are the horrifying blind spots.

Thirty-one 101s were converted by Land Rover with artistically styled bodyshells for the 1995 Sylvester Stallone film Judge Dredd. Land Rover is supposedly the world's only surviving vehicle manufacturer in 2139 when the film is set, and the green oval logo can be seen on the front of the vehicles, known as "City CABs".[1] Several of these prop vehicles still exist in driveable condition and are often seen at Land Rover events. One also features in Canadian eurodance megahit "You're a Superstar" by Love Inc. (Vik Recordings/Sony-Bmg Canada)

Looks a lot of Volvo C303, but similar requirements too, army vehicles.

I saw this Land Rover 101 thing driving out in Tillamook forest off roading a few weeks ago. It was way more capable then my friend's tricked out Toyota FJ cruiser. I was so embarrassed for my friend. That truck was amazing!!!
