Land Rovers were never known for their reliability, and now, 39 years after the Land Rover Series III was produced its reliability has not changed. Let me introduce the Land Rover Series III Lightweight. The truck, which is air-portable, meaning it was dropped from planes, is made to be assembled quickly and easily. Compared to it's sibling, the normal Series III, the lightweight is a toy. The driving experience consists of no creature comforts, and an engine and transmission that scream. The thing wants to kill you. This was our weapon of choice for Overlanding across the United States.
