LAND ROVER 70 YEARS

    • CELEBRATE AN ICON

      On a beach in Anglesey, UK, 70 years ago, Maurice Wilks drew a sketch in the sand. This sketch would become the inspiration for the first Land Rover. The Series I became an icon, as did Wilks. Possessing a truly restless spirit, Wilks’ goal was to build something that could tackle any terrain, weather condition or challenge. That is exactly what he did.

      Launched on 30th April at the 1948 Motor Show in Amsterdam, it soon became obvious that he had created an exceptional vehicle.

      To celebrate our 70th birthday, we visit a place that adds a unique chapter to the heritage of Land Rover in India. It’s a story 70 years in the making; a story of a relationship between a place, its people and Land Rovers. Celebrating a rare 'INNER STRENGTH' that keep original Series Land Rovers and their owners going at a unique place known as The Land of Land Rover, Maneybhanjang-Sandakphu.

      This fascinating and compelling story unfolded in 1958 in Maneybhanjang, West Bengal. Defined by tough terrain and spectacular landscape, life was tough in the then sparsely populated place along the Indo-Nepal border. But the people were tougher, determined to succeed against the odds, relying on ponies to move themselves and supplies across distances near and far. Until the first of the Series 1 Land Rovers arrived in 1958.
