There has rarely been a British success story like the Land-Rover. Developed in a short time and on a small budget, it was launched in 1948 and having passed though many revisions is still a world leader today. The series of vehicles detailed in this book take us from the beginning in 1948 to 1985, and the many surviving examples, supported by a comprehensive parts and restoration industry, are seeing a solid increase in value. Here James Taylor, the premier historian of the marque, provides a detailed study of the Land-Rover's evolution through the period and the variants and special-purpose versions that were produced. Uniquely, it is the manufacturer's own sales brochures and advertising that supply the illustrations, which number some 400 and serve not only to correctly depict the vehicles but also to re-create the atmosphere of the times when they were made.

About the Author

After graduating from Oxford and pursuing further academic studies at Reading, James Taylor spent twelve years working in central government. However, the lure of writing about cars proved too great and he decided to turn it into a career. James has now written well over one hundred books in all, and among them have been several definitive one-make or one-model titles, including a number for Crowood. He has also written for enthusiast magazines in several countries, has translated books for foreign languages, and delivers effective writing training in both the public and private sectors.
