Fully restored, tax-free, LHD Land Rover Lightweight 2.25L petrol for sale.

The Lightweight was fully restored in the first half of this year, no expense spared.

Rare Lightweight prototype, only a few were produced as a forerunner to the official delivery of the Lightweight Land Rover series III. The car is completely original with matching numbers.

The Lightweight is fully restored, both visually and technically. The original 12V 2.25L petrol engine was also completely overhauled. The car is also equipped with new doors (upper and lower sections), new Exmoor Trim canvas cover, new rims and set of tyres as well as many very rare parts such as military headlights, battery heat shield, original 2-piece tailgate, new original capillary temperature gauges and more. The interior was also completely restored to original, including new seats.

The car is completely corrosion-free and was treated against corrosion both inside and out. In terms of lacquer, no expense was spared there either, entirely sprayed in Standox, a very unique special colour showing the Land Rover’s heritage background but without loosing the (ex)military character.

The car has driven less than 50 km since the restoration. The engine runs great and is literally brand new, everything works properly. The car also has a new MOT (Dutch periodic vehicle inspection) valid up to 05-07-2019, it passed at the first attempt without any problems.

In short, an extremely rare, problem-free Lightweight in absolutely new condition. It's the perfect beach/day cruiser, it drives and shifts wonderful. A pretty picture which will make heads turn.

The car is kept in a heated garage and is ready to go.
