JLR Classic to restore recently discovered 1948 Land Rover launch auto

JLR Classic to restore recently discovered 1948 Land Rover launch auto

And here's the video of what a "real" customer can expect when buying from a main Land Rover dealer (Hunters) during the winter months.

Daily Mail reported that Jaguar Land Rover launched an attack on the demonization of diesel as sales in the United Kingdom sunk by a fifth in the last three months of 2017.

Additionally, higher taxes on diesel will affect 90 percent of Jaguar Land Rover vehicles sold in the United Kingdom, making them more expensive to run.

BYD electric vehicles are planned to feature integrated infotainment and digital cluster systems powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820A Automotive platform. It was actually postwar military surplus paint, originally specified as the interior finish of RAF aircraft, and the colour wasn't consistent across different batches, making the restoration of early Series 1 Land Rovers a lot more complicated than it should be! According to Land Rover, it was being used regularly into the 1960s, but was then neglected for decades, sitting in a Welsh field for 20 years where it was used "as a static power source" until the engine seized.

It'll be re-finished in its original light green, a colour characteristic of Series 1 Land Rovers and which has a story of its own.

"There is something charming about the fact that exactly 70 years ago this vehicle would have been undergoing its final adjustments before being prepared for the 1948 Amsterdam Motor Show launch - where the world first saw the shape that's now immediately recognised as a Land Rover", said Hannig. "Beginning its sympathetic restoration here at Classic Works, where we can ensure it's put back together precisely as it's meant to be, is a fitting way to start Land Rover's 70 anniversary year".
