WHY THE NAME SERIES1?

Land Rover entered production in 1948 with what has later been termed the Series I. This was launched at the Amsterdam Motor Show. These cars were built of Birmabright, a lightweight rustproof alloy of aluminum and magnesium. The material was used because of the post-war shortage of steel, while there was a plentiful supply of aircraft aluminum. The Series I model first, hit the roads in 1948 and the Darjeeling vehicle was soon brought after in the fifties by British tea planters who chooses to stay back after independence Which first used in tea gardens, healthcare (UNICEF), By the sixties, the British planters left but the land rover stayed back, ultimately finding their way into the hands of travel operators, and locals who started them as taxi and lifeline.

Background of series I
