1976 Land Rover Lightweight
First registered for the road in 1987; Range Rover differentials; X9 Superwinch; used regularly as a workhorse; driven 50 miles to the sale
Registered to our vendor since 1997, regularly used and put through MOTs, this lightweight petrol Land Rover has only had two other registered keepers since being first DVLA recorded in 1987.
Originally serving as the rugged and no-nonsense military version of the leaf sprung Land Rovers of the day, they were of course specifically made with the armed forces in mind and although this one spent few years with the army, it has been put to work by our vendor on his farm for most of its life, getting involved with day to day activities and being adapted over time. It is of course now free to tax, now fitted with some Range Rover differentials and a very handy X9 Superwinch.
The vendor would be the first person to admit that this landy has been rather ‘used and abused’ over the years and it is certainly a little shabby, but all in a good and practical sort of way!
The car was driven from Cheltenham for the auction and although did not have any hiccups, the vendor did carry some extra fuel in the back just in case there were any unexpected leaks. It should be noted that although it does not need an MOT legally, it has not had one since 2017, when it had quite a few advisories which can be seen online. Obviously, bidders should make a point of coming to view in person of they can and have a good look underneath if they want to take her out on the road in future.
