Used Land Rover For Sale
It started with sticks in the sand, two brothers on a beach, and the need for a used car tough enough for a farm but flexible enough to take on the road. Today, a Land Rover for sale can be found in every major city, and their cars found in the most remote locations. The British car manufacturer Company already existed, in one form or another, for nearly 70 years before the 4wd came along and redefined what it meant for a car to be useful.
Maurice Wilks was the chief designer for Rover in 1947, his brother Spencer the managing director. The two were at the family farm in England when Maurice drew the first concept for an off-road SUV with a stick in the sand. It’s believed that the design is based off an old American military surplus Willys-Overland Jeep that was used on the farm. It worked, but they needed a vehicle geared toward agricultural uses, not war purposes, and they needed for it to be more reliable.
With that, the wheels of creation were set into motion. A year later, in 1948, Rover launched the Series 1, and it was met with an overwhelming amount of success. In fact, their success was so enormous, that the LR division broke from Rover, becoming its own independent entity built around practicality.
The lineup didn’t change drastically from year to year, and only a few more models were ever introduced, but they never needed to. Built for a purpose with the intention of being sturdy, these Rover vehicles are some of the most reliable in the world. In fact, they claim that as many as 70% of the vehicles they’ve ever produced are still running.
With a track record like that, it’s no wonder why a used vehicle still has a value close to the original MSRP.

The leading vehicle receives serious new hardware thanks to their Special Vehicle Operations department. In the earlier days of the Rover Company, a large high-performance model was a dream. However, since the start of the Range Rovers in the 1950s, the vehicle has become an incredible accomplishment for the British manufacturer and has reached heights never imagined. Engineers needed a design that could master tough terrain, surpass unexpected weather conditions and provide an ultimate luxury experience. The SUV carries a spacious cabin with leading technology for the highest quality interior. The Autobiography’s unmatched luxurious style complements its incredible performance.
