1973 Land Rover Airportable RHD (Lightweight)
From what I was told this Rover started it’s life on the island of Cyprus. For the British Military, it was used as a radio truck, hence why the 24 volts. This Rover only has about 40,000 miles on it, but the engine has a lot more hours sense it was used as a generator for the radios. This Rover still has the original 24 Volt 90 Amp Generator.

I purchased the vehicle with most of these mods already completed, I set out to keep it what it was because I liked the way it looked, and it handled great. I did some upkeep and swapped out some parts that I thought needed to be changed. It runs and drives great and would keep it if I didn’t already have another Rover that I am working on. Included is the original documents and papers that came with the car when I purchased it.
