MIL­I­TARY LIGHT­WEIGHT

Land Rover Monthly - - Pricecheck -

88” SERIES II and SIII, 1968 to 1984

THERE'S NO mis­tak­ing this aus­tere and dis­tinc­tive mil­i­tary ver­sion of the leaf-sprung Land Rover, built for the armed forces. In 1972 the mil­i­tary Series III got the same me­chan­i­cal up­grades as the civil­ian model, in­clud­ing a five-bear­ing petrol en­gine and im­proved gear­box with syn­chro­mesh on all for­ward gears, and an al­ter­na­tor re­placed the dy­namo. Like all mil­i­tary Land Rovers, Lightweights are in de­mand with en­thu­si­asts, so good ones fetch se­ri­ous money.

BUYER’S TIP: Great fun in the sum­mer. SPEC­I­FI­CA­TIONS

1968-1984: 2.25 petrol/diesel and trans­mis­sions as Series II and Series III.
