Land Rover ® Lightweight (NYA)


For sale, Land Rover ® Lightweight in Drab Olive (1983).

Petrol 2286cc. MOT with no advisories until 27th July 2019. Brand New 750 Military Style Chevron Tyres. Late release in 1996. 3 former keepers. Twin Tanks.

We are delighted to present for sale this well-sorted lightweight, in original condition. On the outside, there are many period features - the front bridging plate, original galvanised cappings, front and rear bumperettes, front lifting eyes and matching bonnet mounted spare. There have been some subtle newer additions such as a new canvas for a fresh look, a full set of our 750 military style chevron tyres to aid gearing and stance, towball and defender style door mirrors for additional visibility. All of this makes for a vehicle that looks just as it should've on release - with little upgrades for more usability in the correct military style. 

The interior is very much standard, with a square heater with front demist, military flyscreens three front seats and deluxe matting to the footwells. The only notable addition is a seat belt bar, which has been fitted to use inertia reel seatbelts. A cut off switch has also been fitted to the left of the steering wheel, which is always handy & can be taken away with the keys for extra security. The rear is unfitted and houses a load mat, but could have benches if they are required for £295 fitted.

Out on the road, this lightweight is a joy to drive - the petrol engine is whisper quiet and starts up with the first turn of the key, the new rubber gives a more relaxed cruising experience and it certainly looks the part out on the tarmac. This is perhaps due to the late release and the MOT with no advisories - it feels well sorted and 'tight'. 

In summary then, if you are looking for a nice, original, period lightweight then this could be for you. These vehicles represent a good value way into Land Rover ® ownership, and with the late release and classic insurance, it should prove cheap to run.
