A Lightweight Land Rover with EVERYTHING!!

Recommended Posts

In my search for a Lightweight L/R, came across this one currently on eBay that really does have EVERYTHING!  Must have driven through the War & Peace stalls with its bodywork covered in glue!  And inside as well!  Now its not really fair to decry someone else's obviously keen efforts, and if he/she likes it then that is all that matters.  Maybe I should buy it and strip it down as you could open a military stall with the bits bolted onto this Landie. Someone needs to whisper in his ear.."less is more". https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Land-Rover-Lightweight-24v-ffr-1980-Series-3-military/114280951981?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

Worth a thought though. It looks clean and straight, if in generaly good condition it could be a decent buy and you could recoup quite a bit when selling off the extras.

At least it's not covered in chrome and it's missing the tow rope around the bumper and a canvas bucket hanging off the tow hook collecting road dirt.

Look through the photos, the rope is there!

Oh dear, so it is (is that a KERR?) and so much more besides. In my defence its not wrapped around it "just so" in the usual way :whistle:

Still, more parts for other vehicles to sell on including at least two spotlights...

You are right, Iain, underneath all that gubbins lies what might be a decent truck; but not sure if I can afford the filler needed to plug the holes when all that kit comes off!  It would look like a collander.

Right enough, not many unaffected panels.  Pity...

Well once you get all the crap off it, underneath it seems to still have the screened 24v system & an original engine not a V8 or TDI which is something in its favour.

It's second only to one which was on eBay a few months back - my all time favourite!  It had a large sign over the windscreen "LAD Armourer" and it was covered with every piece of REME recovery kit you could imagine.  It had a cab top with grilles over all the windows and, because of the weight of the snatch blocks on the bonnet, a patent screw assisted mechanism for raising the bonnet with a large handle at the front - just beside the enormous vice.  And, funnily enough, that was a good lightweight underneath as well.  I kept a photo of it, but, for some reason it won't download.

You should have seen the Land Rovers we fitted the NI GRP armour to. If they had gone through several tours there would be quite a few holes in all the panels as the holes were never in the same place.
