Lightweight


Originally developed for the British Army, between 1968-1984 the military lightweight, forms the penultimate model of our celebration to Remake History. Originally known as the Half Ton Lightweight, all 37,897 units produced were based on the Series IIA and III by the original manufacturer as a lighter version of their counterparts once it was stripped of its panels.


The Twisted Lightweights will be finished in Willow Green metallic, they will encompass design details including a canvas roof, low backed classic seating, half height doors with fold down windscreen. Ten lightweight models will be built using delivery mileage unused Defender from our cherished stock. As you would expect we have considerately addressed the usual areas of improvement over the standard unit including; power, handling, steering, sealing and rust protection, to make this special build Defender the driving experience it deserves. No doubt some will end up in private collections, but many we hope will be in regular ‘service’.


All were first registered in early 2016 following the end of production and represent some of the newest vehicles available. They have been held in storage awaiting this release for almost 3 years.


All vehicles are delivery mileage, VAT qualifying and N1 commercial status. Each will be supplied with a comprehensive 24 month warranty with return to base breakdown recovery.


To reserve your piece of history, build slot and lock in your build number we require an initial deposit of £5000. This can be paid either by calling the main office number or clicking ‘add to basket’ & going through our checkout process.
