The Classic Land Rover: Britain's Favorite Dual-Purpose Vehicle

Tractor Tales from Wales: The Land Rover, first produced by the Rover Car Company in 1948, is practically an institution in rural Britain.

This Series I Land Rover dates to 1950 and belongs to my nephew, Phillip. It initially belonged to his father, Bob, who tells me his son used to ask, “Dad, when you die can I have your Land Rover?” (Aren’t kids just charming?) Finally Bob decided that since he wasn’t using the vehicle very often he would sell it to his son, and at least that way he would get paid for it.
