Land Rover's Halewood Factory, History in Liverpool

Land Rover's Halewood Factory in Liverpool

 

Land Rover's Lode Lane factory in Solihull, England is iconic and known around the world as the traditional home of Land Rover since 1948. However, not all English-built Land Rovers come out of the ancestral home in the Midlands. Since 2006, Land Rover's smaller transverse engine models have come from Halewood, an old Ford plant on the outskirts of Liverpool.


A History of the Land Rover Camel Trophy: Part 4, 1990-1992

In 1989, Land Rover released the Discovery. Based on the Range Rover Classic platform, the Discovery would define Land Rover's success in the 1990s. It would also define the balance of the Camel Trophy event, with Discovery taking the mantle of team vehicle from Defenders starting with the 1990 event. With the exception of the final Camel Trophy in 1998, the Discovery would define the rest of the event's life.

From 1993-1995, Camel Trophy would see what some considered the last gasp of its glory years. The event was still solidly focused on the 4x4 expedition, using Land Rover Discoverys. This period would take the event on some of its first multi-national adventures as well. However, the seeds were being sown for the final events, where the focus on off-road driving would be heavily reduced.

The late 1980s would be a sort of "Glory Years" for the Camel Trophy, hosting some of the most iconic iterations of the event. With the Camel Trophy now an extremely popular global event, it also drew better and better teams. Many of the participants in these years would go on to have major roles in the off-road and Land Rover community. It would also feature the only British win ever in the 1989 event, a win for which the victors remain celebrated 31 years later.

By the mid-1980s, the Camel Trophy was an international mega-event, exploring the world's jungles in their iconic convoys of Sandglow-painted Land Rovers. The event grew bigger and more intense every year, and began to experiment with more arid environments alongside the usual lush green jungle locations.

There may be no adventure associated with Land Rover that is more iconic than the Camel Trophy. For eighteen years, the ultimate test of man and machine was partnered with the Best4x4xFar. It was an adventure that touched every part of the globe, and took Land Rovers through the harshest conditions. As Camel Trophy turns 40 in 2020, we're going to look back throughout the year at the history of The Great Adventure.

Land Rover 50 year anniversary vehicle badge

 

In 1998, Land Rover celebrated its fiftieth anniversary, a major milestone for any company. It was celebrated in due style, particularly in America, where Land Rover was enjoying success with Range Rover and Discovery sales. Many enthusiasts consider the 1990s one of Land Rover's greatest periods, and the 50th Anniversary was certainly part of that. It also created a significant cache of memorabilia that still circulates. As we celebrate Land Rover's 72nd anniversary, let's take a look back almost a quarter-century to how we celebrated in North America.

Seventy years ago, in April 1950, the British Automobile & Motor Cycle Show was held at the Grand Central Palace in New York City. Among the models exhibited was the Land Rover, which had not been formally imported to the United States at this point, though some had been sold in Canada. This marked the beginning of high-volume Land Rover sales in the United States.

Range Rover's Early Dakar Dominance

Range Rover At Dakar 1979

 

The 2020 Dakar Rally is going on now, with a convoy of race vehicles that bear as much resemblance to a factory vehicle as a NASCAR Toyota Camry does to one in a rental car lot. It's the first rally to be held in Saudi Arabia, the third region to host the rally. But in 1979, it was a race across Africa, in modified factory cars...and in the earliest days, the Range Rover Classic was dominant in the field.
