For sale through AB4x4s Cleveland and on behalf of a customer is this custom built Land Rover Military Lightweight Soft top featuring a V8 and 5 speed box.

This Lightweight was rebuilt recently then came to our premises where we have done a full body restoration.
We are a couple of weeks away from completion with a few small jobs to sort. As can be seen in the pictures, we have converted this to a full soft top and fitted new heavy duty sticks making it much safer for all on board.
Finished off with a brand new hood against the Atlantic green it looks amazing.

During the refurb we removed the bulkhead and completely restored it then galvanised dipped it along with the bumper and capping’s plus other pieces. We also used stainless steel nuts and bolts throughout.

It is on a coil spring conversion making the ride and handle feel much nicer. All running gear is brand new as are all the brakes to include wheel bearings, seals and callipers.

The chassis is in fantastic condition with a galvanised rear crossmember. It is totally rot free and wax treated for longevity.

It is sporting a V8 SD1 engine which sound lovely and purrs along. It was first registered in 1975 so is a historic vehicle and tax free. It was registered from is original military plate in 1983 and comes with the original service book giving it a nice history.
