RCT 820H – Rare 1971 Land Rover Series IIA Lightweight.
One of approximately 2,000 Series 2A Lightweight / Air portable / Rover 1 Land Rovers.
This particular 24v example served with the Royal Navy (Military reg No 26 RN 88) and has been enthusiast owned since demob in 1980.
There is a huge history file with this Land Rover, including 20 old MOT certificates to support the 23,500 recorded mileage.
Other documentation includes build date letter (from Land Rover UK), Letter from Beverley Museum of transport (Confirming Royal Navy use), copy of original chassis number record from Land Rover and copy of user handbook.
Also included – 13 pages of service records – detailing all work carried out by previous owners, including a complete rebuild from October 1998 to June 1999 – the main part of which was the fitting of a brand new military spec chassis.
Because of the above – The Land Rover is in exceptional condition for its age – with as you would expect a rust free chassis and bulkhead.
Finished in Nato Green, with original army spec canvas, Smiths square heater, 7.50 x 16 tyres, bridging plate, and Nato rear hitch.
Definitely one for the enthusiast, – not many “Headlamp in the grill” Lightweights come up for sale – and fewer in this condition.
