FEATURED VEHICLE: 1977 LAND ROVER RANGE ROVER

"When it was first presented to the world as a concept in 1967, the Range Rover signaled a significant change of course for the Land Rover brand. Prior to that year the green oval badge was predominantly associated with the utilitarian line of Series trucks, vehicles sold more as tools than conveyances. When Spen King and Gordon Bashford designed the first Range Rover prototype, they could not have known their creation would ascend to such legendary status and be lauded as one of the most celebrated platforms in automotive history. Nor could they have fathomed that their first generation Range Rover would eventually define the Land Rover brand or go largely unaltered for the next two decades."
