The 1948 LAND ROVER by the Rover Company, is today regarded as a British icon. It was first designed by Maurice Wilks in 1947, on his farm in Newborough, Anglesey. The design ‘may’ have been influenced by the Jeep since the prototype, was built on a Jeep chassis and axles. The early choices of colour were dictated by military surplus supplies of aircraft cockpit paint and came in various shades of green.
