This Rover It is considered by many the most hardy Series model constructed. It is quite possibly also the type of classic Land Rover that features strongly in the general publics perception of the Land Rover from its many appearances in popular films and television documentaries set in Africa throughout the 1960s such as Born Free. 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 600000 of which more than 70% had been exported. Certainly it was while the Series IIA was in production that sales of utility Land Rovers reached their peak in 1969-70 when sales of over 60000 Land Rovers a year were recorded. (For comparison the sales of the Defender in recent years have been around the 25000 level since the 1990s. As well as record sales the Land Rover dominated many world markets- in Australia in the 1960s. Options include: Radial tires vinyl interior.
