After 68 years, Land Rover production finally came to a close, with the last “Defenders” rolling off the production line in Solihull, West Midlands, on 29 January 2016. By this time, just over 2 million of these trusty, iconic vehicles had been built. Their story had commenced in 1947, when Maurice Wilks, chief designer at Rover, harboured the idea of a simple, rugged vehicle that could be field-serviced, a farmer’s car, a rover for the land. The name had stuck.
In the early post-war economy, steel was in short supply, so the body was made from an aluminum alloy. The basic construction with its ladder frame chassis meant that the Land Rover was very versatile, and indeed it was adapted for countless uses, military and civilian likewise.
Even though ownership of the brand changed rather frequently – from Rover to British Leyland to BMW to Ford to Tata Motors – the shape and basic principle of the Land Rover remained pretty much unaltered, continued technical improvements notwithstanding. As much a classless as a timeless car, the “Landy” has always been popular with her Majesty, the Queen, who is said to have owned Land Rovers since 1952.
