History of the Land Rover Series After World War 2 the Rover company decided to develop a new model as demand for their luxury cars was down. The Series 1 was designed in 1948 specifically as a work vehicle, ideal for farm or industrial use. It was launched at the Amsterdam 1948 Motor Show.

The original Series 1 is a design classic, but is of course more basic than today’s vehicles. A single 2m wheel-base model was produced from 1948 until 1951, with a 1.6 litre engine that reached 50 bhp. It had a four speed gear box, which included a pioneering two speed transfer. This enabled a freewheel 4 wheel drive system which could be used permanently, while a traditional non freewheel 4 wheel drive could be engaged from a pedal by the driver's feet. This remains a great innovation.

As a working vehicle the Series 1 came with few frills, with roof and door tops sold as optional accessories, but from 1949 onwards, more upmarket station wagons were available. The first of which, the Tickford, sold 500 models, the majority for export. Until 1958 the model was released with tweaks and improvements year on year, including a larger 2.0 litre engine, a wider wheelbase, and the introduction of the diesel model.

In 1958, the year BML first opened for business, the Series II was launched. It was manufactured until 1961, when it was replaced by the Series IIA. The Series II was designed with the help of famous Land Rover stylist David Bache, who improved interior design, and gave the Land Rover its distinctive barrel waist and curved side windows. The Series IIA was launched in 1961 and made technical improvements on the Series II, as well as minor cosmetic changes. It was made until 1971, and during this time Land Rover sales reached their peak of 75,000 models sold per year. Such was the quality and innovation of the vehicle. The Series IIA forward facing and IIB forward facing were also launched in the late 1960s, which increased the load and storage space available.
