Zombie Killer aka The Rogue V100

Hello guys! New to the forum and this is my first post here. Iím not sure what category my vehicle best fits in, but I guess itís the thought that counts anyway. This machine started as a 1968 V100 armored car, and has been extensively modified. Iím in the process of waiting for Violator axles with locker for the rear and violator stub axles and lockouts for the front (since I already have 19 spline 1-3/4Ē axles and a locker in it now) and the Violator lockouts. As soon as the parts show up, itís off to Winter Haven Florida.

I will make progress posts as time allows
Hereís the vehicle


Hereís the custom built wheels (those are not chrome plated either)

WGT, good to see you on Pirate. I've followed a lot of your builds on SteelSoldiers.

The V100s were amphibious APCs used for patrol and convoy protection in Vietnam. They are the predecessor to the more modern ASV150 and LAV series APCs. I believe WGT is modifying that V100 for use by a police dept SWAT team. If I remember right it's had a Cummins 6BT swap and the hull has been extensively modified to add windshields and the headlamps in the nose. Here is what a stock V100 looks like:

Thanks guys!
This V100 is mine, just something I'm playing around with. I took the stock 361 Chrysler engine and 5 speed manual trans out and replaced it with a Cummins 5.9 backed up with a 6 speed Allison. The V150 I am working on here is assigned to a SWAT team, and is in the early stages of rebuild.

WGT, post some pics of your M114 and some of the other stuff you have built. Some really first rate fabrication and attention to detail.

Here's a recent pic of my H1 and the M114 we built for Gwinnett SWAT out front of our shop...I will upload some of the other tracked pics a bit later. There's a few vids out there too IIRC

Interesting pics. I like the idea of an hotrod APC.

Here's something I had a hand in, a few years ago now...

Now that's pretty neat I've done M114, LAV150 and a LAV300 for agencies so far, with another LAV150 in the parking lot. We're trying to get our V100 mostly finished this year in an effort to free up some shop space

You could give me the M114, that would free up some room.

The GM engine would have to go though, a nice Mopar small block would be much cooler.

Cheers. When we designed it, we actually considered the aesthetics. From the pics of your work, I suspect it would look even better if you got your hands on it.

Here's a couple more of some in service in the Philippines

Thanks hoggyn, its always a pleasure to see other folks work!

Here's a couple more pics that show different views of this project. I was just informed by Steve at Ouverson that my axles were on the way out...fortunately he just happened to have a pair of gun drilled Violator stub axles on the shelf that would complete my order

It's not much to look at right now, since I'm building up all the seat mounts and welding them in as I go, then I'll blast the whole thing and epoxy prime it. There are also 5 other seats (not pictured) that are of the same design and the mounts are already installed. All the seat frames will be powdercoated and new seat covers will be made as well.
