Land Rover Brochures and Sales Literature

Land Rover literatureThe automaker we now know as Land Rover technically didn’t begin until 1978 and Land Rover brochures were after that time. Two brothers first built the vehicle in 1948 and they were named Spencer and Maurice Wilks. These two brothers were so impressed by the Jeep that they saw in the war that they wanted to make a vehicle that could be as tough and versatile as the American Army Jeep. Maurice Wilks worked for the Rover Company as a designer and actually put together the first Land Rover on a Jeep chassis on his farm. Land Rover brochures and literature came much later.

The first Land Rover or actually a Rover was equipped with full-time four-wheel drive, canvas cab enclosure and removable doors that were optional rather than standard equipment. A crude mock-up of miscellaneous parts that was the start of something that became to be known as the Land Rover. I would love to see the Land Rover brochures back then, but not yet. In the 1950s Land Rover started to get refined and designed until 1958 when the brand officially launched with the Series II that offered increased horsepower and refinements that made the Rover, which is the predecessor of the Land Rover. The first diesel Rover was introduced and then the Series IIA Land Rover was introduced and was produced from 1961 to 1971. The Leyland Motor Company acquired Land Rover, which later became known as British Leyland Motors.

The next step in the progress of Land Rover was the introduction of the Range Rover in 1970, which was a vehicle that stood apart from the competition. The Rang Rover was powered by a V-8 engine, had an aluminum body that was not only rugged, but also stylish and attractive. Land Rover brochures would be great, but haven’t found any yet. The brand that was still officially the Rover was changed to the Rover group and was acquire by the British Aerospace after British Leyland Motors became a nationalized company.

The Range Rover was known in most parts of the world for its abilities, durability and longevity. Then in 1987 the Land Rover Rang Rover was brought to the American marketplace. The popularity of the SUV in North America made the Land Rover a big hit and in 1989 Land Rover introduced the Discovery. Then you could find Land Rover brochures, catalogs and sales literature. BMW purchase Land Rover in 1995 and the former utility vehicle became more of a luxury vehicle under the BMW ownership. Even though the Land Rover became more luxury and less off-road focused the power plant and the drive-train continued to be capable of traveling off-road.

Land Rover continued to expand the line with the Freelander and options that set the pace for other automakers when it came to off-road abilities. Land Rover was purchased by Ford in 2000 from BMW, but that was short lived when Ford hit some hard times in 2008 Land Rover was eventually sold to Tata Motors of India. Land Rover has continued to expand the line including the Range Rover Sport, Range Rove Evoque, Discovery and the LR4. See the Land Rover brochures and sales literature below.
