Land Rover Anniversary

On April the 30th, 1948 the first Land Rover prototype premiered at the Amsterdam Motor Show. It was cobbled together from Rover parts (it used a 1.6-liter engine from the Rover P3 sedan) and a Jeep chassis. The Series I was billed as "a go-anywhere vehicle, a portable source of power, and an alternative to the light tractor." Doors were optional.

Maurice Wilkes, Rover's chief designer, was taken by the American designed and Willys and Ford built GPW (Jeep). He wanted to produce a light agricultural and utility vehicle. The first prototypes were built with Jeep chassis and Rover P3 saloon car engine and gearbox. For some reason the steering was from the centre of the vehicle, not the left or right side.

Pre-Production L05 at the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show

Eventually designs were worked out, a bit late for the 1948 Geneva Auto Show but in time for Amsterdam Motor Show, pictured above.

Rover had worked out something pretty good, the ladder frame was tough steel, the drivetrain was already proven and the body was built from aluminium, the only surplus metal available in the UK. It had great potential for export, a desired method to get foreign currance after WWII.

They have conquered just about every continent (not sure about Antarctica) as utility and luxury vehicles.


Fancy a Singer

Alan Brand found this while trolling the Internet! It may not have crossed deepest darkest Africa, but it has crossed the Atlantic to find California!

Even if you don't want it there is a lot of detail pictures http://www.ebay.com/itm/371055588215
