Land Rover Series 3 lightweight, Technical Specifications Cars & Parts For Sale

The vehicle was available as both S2A and S3 models and called the Lightweight (or "Air-portable") and was built purely for the Ministry of defence. It is based based on the civilian Land Rover's mechanics with the main difference being the shape of the bodywork. Although named Lightweight , it was actually heavier than the civilian counterpart. It was only made lighter when the de-mountable body panels were removed, allowing it to be lifted by the helicopters of the time. These had excellent off road capability which was ideal for the military so once they filtered through to the second hand civilian market they were quickly snapped up by off road enthusiasts.
