History of the Land Rover

The Land Rover Series range was launched in 1948 and the model, now known as the Defender, was launched in 1983 and the continuous run finished in January 2016, after 67 years. Land Rovers were inspired by the US-built Willys Jeep immediately after the war and by 1992 they claimed that 70% of all the vehicles they had ever built were still in use. The Defender and Series ranges have had unique international presence throughout the production run, having been exported, manufactured and produced under licence by a number of other manufacturers in a variety of markets, to include Australia, Southern and North Africa, Turkey, Brazil, Pakistan and Malaysia, to name just a few.  In 1993 Land Rover decided to take the plunge into the US market after their successful launch of the Range Rover brand in 1987 in order to offer an upmarket alternative to the Jeep Wrangler targeted at adventurous buyers. Land Rover finally had to retract their offering from the North American and Canadian markets in 1997 due to economic viability. The Defenders offered in the US during the 90’s had to be significantly modified in comparison to Land Rover’s other export markets. Subsequent federal safety regulation amendments finally withdrew the Defender from the US market entirely in 1997, with Land Rover throwing their attention towards upmarket Discovery and Range Rover models that were being built from the ground up.

The Car

This 1992 early two door Land Rover Discovery was originally delivered to Spain and registered on the 18/05/1992. The first owner had the car for two years until the end of 1994, subsequently it has had two further owners until the end of 2020. In summary, it's a highly original structurally sound truck that present in good all-round condition when considered its age and mileage and lack of underside corrosion.

Overall, the bodywork is factory original. There are a few small dents, however overall presents well. The car would benefit from some cosmetic attention, for example the front side passenger fender rubs against the door upon entry and exit to the vehicle.

AN UPDATE FROM THE TEAM
 

We are here and open for business

These are truly extraordinary times. Although we’re not as raring to go as usual, we still remain open, with shipping line's continuing to run, although at a reduced frequency. 

  Keeping our distance 

 Fortunately we are a small team and geographically spread. The team are largely working from home with the exception of our independent mechanics who are able to continue to work safely. 

 What does this mean for YOU

 We continue to operate and send out vehicles globally on a monthly basis. Our ability to prepare a vehicle to a client's specification is somewhat stifled. Although our mechanics are doing their very best, to meet smaller requests.

  Fast Moving Cars 

 AKA lockdown project. 

We’ve been working hard over recent months to gather a collection of "FAST MOVING CARS". These are rolling projects, although not perfect, they are ideal for first time importers giving a taste of what English classics have to offer.  

  Fighting fit in no time

 We are confident that we will come through this stronger and we wish safety and good health to everyone and their families. 

We are only a call, email or text away so please don’t hesitate.
