Classic Land Rover advertisements


An extensive celebration of classic Land Rover advertising from 1948 to 1979

Land Rovers have been advertised throughout the print media ever since the first models was launched in 1948.

Originally, much of the advertising was concentrated on the specialist farming press and often used line drawings of Land Rovers hard at work in the fields, with standard text.Over time, adverts began to appear in other specialist media, as well as general publications, and also became more colourful and imaginative.
