Land Rover Lightweight



Some Lightweights were manufactured as a 'Winterised'  version. My Lightweight  was one of these. Winterised Lightweights were fitted with an 'Arctic Heater'  which was fed with water from the engine and the heat distributed to the windscreen and side windows via a ducting system. Some of the interior metalwork had insulation matting bonded to it. Externally there were cleats and fixings for blinds to cover the windscreen and door windows and a radiator 'muff'.
My Lightweight has had the Arctic heater removed but there are still signs of it having been fitted.
