We’re a bit past the actual anniversary, but we can still celebrate #70yearsoflandrover with this lovely #LandRover Series IIa. The SII (and SIIa) dates from 1958 (this is a late #1960s example) but was basically just a slightly restyled continuation of the flat-sided, utilitarian original.
-
Conceived in 1947, the original Land Rover was a real shot in the dark - #RoverCars was primarily known for solid, old-fashioned near luxury cars, the kind preferred by Doctors, Solicitors, and MPs. But such cars were not in demand in the postwar environment of deprivation - just getting materials to build cars was a challenge. Supplies of raw materials were reserved for industrial uses or for vehicles for export (to bring home cash), and the prewar looking Rover P3 was neither of those things.
-
Taking inspiration from the many surplus Jeeps that littered Britain after the war and Ferguson Tractors, Rover’s chief designer Maurice Wilks designed a light #offroad #4wd vehicle for farm and agricultural use - at first based directly on a Jeep chassis but with Rover P3 mechanicals and a magnesium-alloy body. The flat-sided body was designed to be made cheaply, and the whole product was only intended to generate cash until the U.K. economy recovered. At first, it was also classified as a commercial vehicle.
-
But the iconic offroader quickly outgrew those origins. The first longer-wheelbase trucks appeared in 1956, and in 1957, Rover decided to refine it a bit, with chief stylist David Bache turning his attention to making the body a little less “military surplus.” Underneath, much of the original continued, with a 2.6L I-6 joining the gas and diesel fours of the original.
-
There are very few differences between the II and the IIa, though the headlights moved to the fenders in 1969. Sales of the IIa were very strong - but in the U.S., changing regulations and slow sales caused imports to end in 1974. With gradual refinements, the original Land Rover continued as the SIII into 1985, with a more refined version, the Defender 90/110, arriving in 1983 and lasting into 2016. Land Rovers returned to the U.S. in 1987 (Range Rovers only), and the Defender returned from 1993-1997.

The Best of British 🇬🇧Rain, beer, mud, dogs plucky determination. And Land Rovers. Whenever I see one of these best of British 4x4’s, it always reminds me that I wish I’d not sold my old Series Three Stage One flat-front LWB V8 model. Is there a Land Rover in your life?
