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.
