The answer is VAN. The definition, of course, is ‘vehicle’, and the cryptic way is ‘Ivan eventually’. Take the ‘eventual’ letters from Ivan.. i.e the letters at the end .. VAN!

Not heavy, so partly delighted
At first pass, I think light, but something is removed? The answer is light, so the cryptic part is redundent.
