Land Rover

Rover recently bought a design and manufacturing facilities for the 3.5-liter V8 light alloy engine that General Motors had built into the compact Buick Special for a few years. With this machine, which is just as modern as it is powerful, the large Rover has now been fitted since the autumn of 1967, and until then had a rather sedate 3-liter six-cylinder engine. Since April 1968 also installed in the smaller sedan. In addition, Rover had also developed a sports car with very interesting technical details, which was recently shown to the public. however there is no intention to build it in series.
In February 1968, just a few months after its manufacturer had been subsumed, under government pressure, into the Leyland Motor Corporation, the Land Rover celebrated its twentieth birthday, with total production to date just short of 600,000, of which more than 70% had been exported.

The new 1 Ton 109 is basically a Series IIB Forward Control built with a standard 109 in body, featuring 2.6-litre petrol engine, lower ratio gearbox. The chassis frame is unique to this model and feature drop-shackle suspension similar to the military series Land Rovers. 900x16 tyres are standard.
Introduced this year Lightweight or "Air-portable" 88" is built purely for the Ministry of defence, based on the civilian Land Rover's mechanics, with different bodywork. Although named Lightweight , it is actually heavier than its civilian counterpart. It is lighter when the de-mountable body panels are removed, thus allowing it to be lifted by the helicopters.
