The Original Sport Utility vehicle, the Land Rover defender needs little in the way of Introduction. Initially introduced in 1948, it went through several generations of production all the way through 1985. Designed as more of an agricultural utility vehicle, the offering from Rover Company was an instant success. Each generation saw improvements and the Series III is the most desirable of the original Defenders for this reason.
