LAND-RoverS have now completed over twelve years' uninterrupted operation on and off the roads of the world. During this time they have built up a reCord of unremitting service that can never be equalled, while their numberless activities in undeveloped territories have become legendary. Ruggedly built and powerful, Land-Rovers will outlast any similar type of vehicle, their strong box-section chassis and alloy bodywork being proof against the ravages of rough and tumble operation in all weathers and climates. There is no substitute for the four-wheel drive Land-Rover, the world's most versatile vehicle.







The 2-litre diesel engine of Rover design and construction gives further versatility to the LandRover by increasing its efficiency and economy in conditions favouring diesel operation. A truly rugged, four-cylinder unit, the Rover diesel engine develops 51 b.h.p. at 3,500 r.p.m. Its speed range is sufficiently close to that of the Land-Rover petrol engine to enable the same transmission units to be used.







The 2¼-litre overhead valve petrol engine develops 77 b.h.p. at 4,250 r.p.m. and has a torque of 124 lb. ft. at 2,500 r.p.m. Thus, there is abundant power available for vehicle operation, hauling trailers or driving machinery. Power that is smooth and willing for normal work ; slogging, determined power for tough assignments. This is an outstandingly reliable engine, its robust construction giving it a long and trouble-free life.
