1972 Land Rover Lightweight 88 Adventure Project

1972 Land Rover Lightweight 88 Adventure Project

The Land Rover Lightweight 88 was originally created to allow for military transport via helicopter and, at the same time, manage rough terrain while performing ground duties. This special version known as the ‘Adventure Project” shows off a bare metal silver exterior for a truly unique look that’s both refined and a bit rough. It gets bits like a custom steel bumper, integrated winch, front skidplate, headlight guards, a full roof rack with cargo boxes, and a new set of driving lights up top. Inside, there’s black leather upholstery and a diamond-plated cargo area. Power comes from a 2.25-liter four and a newly reconditioned transmission. Wheels shod in vintage Dunlop SP Qualifier tires. Benefitting from a recent — and thoroughly extensive — restoration, this Land Rover project is powered by a 2.25-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a reconditioned transmission. Trimmed in black leather, the interior of the car also features a diamond-plated boot and a rear area with a pair of black leather bench seats. It just sold at Bonhams for a rather surprising $21k.
