The Land Rover File #2# All models since 1947

by Eric Dymock

The Land Rover was introduced at the Amsterdam motor show in April 1948 as a stop-gap, to see Rover through a difficult market, and a national steel shortage. Yet in due course Rover owed its survival to this astonishing vehicle, which saw service not only on the quiet farms for which it was intended, but also in every desert, jungle, swamp, mountain and trouble spot throughout the civilised and uncivilised world.

Land Rovers proliferated and matured into different configurations and marks, with open and closed bodies, and bewildering permutations of engines and drives for military and civilian use. Station Wagon and Road Rover, prototypes for special tasks and special forces, it was stretched in every direction and grew more powerful. In due course Land Rover developed additional models Range Rover, Discovery, Freelander and Range Rover Sport. Their common heritage was a cross-country agility that became an industry benchmark.

This book is the independent definitive history of all Land Rover models since 1947. It includes hitherto unacknowledged and even secret prototypes, known only to Land Rover insiders, together with detailed specifications, descriptions and photographs.
