2016 TWISTED LIGHTWEIGHT 90 SOFT TOP - DELIVERY MILES For Sale
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’.
