It goes without saying that we are particularly excited about bringing a late Series III Airportable Lightweight to makret. Land Rovers military vehicle variants are arguably some of the most resilient models produced. This model was first commissioned by the Danish Army in 1981. It was then later gifted to the Lithuanian Land Forces (LLF) under a joint Danish – Lithuanian project. The LLF was formed in 1991 to form the backbone of the countries defence force and form an integral part of NATO’s forces. Being a late model lightweight production vehicle, it represents a great usable military variant benefiting from later synchromesh gearbox, larger clutch plate and Smith’s interior heater.

Overall the vehicle presents in great original shape. There is no evidence of any modifications from its original specification. The original matching numbers Diesel 2 ¼ engine starts with half a turn of the key. The Smiths heater quickly fires into life. The gearbox works through all gears precisely without hesitation. It’s evident that the vehicle has been well maintained, there is a selection of replacement engine components. Both high and low range function without hesitation. The instrument dials also all function correctly. Structurally the vehicle is very sound the footwells our original and don’t suffer from corrosion. The frame has certainly been undersealed during its time in the military, which has likely help to preserve its condition. There is no evidence of any repair works to the frame, which is a true testament to the overall condition.

In summary this is a fantastic survivor condition Lightweight, that can be used enjoyed straightaway.
