Time to Revisit the Forward Control

Back to Main Page
Posted On: Nov 28, 2007 By: Category: Land Rover News

Way back in the mid-90’s we brought you the story of one George Bull, an intrepid fellow whom Atlantic British sponsored in his quest to see the world in a Land Rover Forward Control.

The vehicle shown here is a 1967 Series 110 FC with the Rover P5’s “actually very” good three-liter six, according to Hemmings Motor News. It uses the normal Series IIA chassis, engine and running gear hidden under the truck bodywork, with a new sub-frame bolted to the front of the chassis to carry the cab. The cab itself contained some new panels but made considerable use of standard Series IIA panels. The radiator was moved forward and the fan driven by its own mini propshaft complete with two universal joints.

Most FCs came with a drop-side body, supported by a subframe of U-channel girders and uprights bolted to the chassis. The engine is accessible via a cover in the bed at the back of the cab. The bed is supposedly big enough to carry an 80-inch Series I Land Rover. Total production is thought to have been no more than 3,193, so this a rare beast by any measure.

Land Rover

This one comes to us from Hemmings, who saw this run among late model Pathfinders and Grand Cherokees, “where it stomped them flat and spit on the remains”.
