Land Rover

The Land Rover, a classic British Staple, originated in 1947. Designed by Maurice Wilks, who was the chief designer at Rover Company, Maurice was inspired by an American WWII Jeep.  Here is a picture of the original.

The early choice of color, various shades of green, was determined by a surplus of military aircraft cockpit paint.

This classic British Automobile, stood for superiority, wealth, and safety.  Take a look at our favorite ads-
