For most people today, January 29th, 2016, is just another day, but for the enthusiast of the Land Rover Defender today has a much more solemn meaning. The very last Land Rover Defender has rolled off the production line amid cheers and tears of 700 employees, ending 67 years of the 4×4 being made. Jaguar Land Rover has discontinued the famous off-road vehicle, which has been exported across the world. Although formal production ends for this iconic 4×4, we are proud to say that our work at Classic Overland is just beginning.
Classic Overland is passionate about keeping the Land Rover Defender alive and well. We are determined to meticulously restore these beautiful vehicles and keep them bringing joy to their owners as only a Defender can. Now with production formally ending, these prized vehicles become even more so. At Classic Overland we encourage you to help us keep the amazing story of the Land Rover Defender going.
Maybe Led Zeppelin said it best:
Should I fall out of love, my fire in the light;
To chase a feather in the wind?
Within the glow that weaves a cloak of delight,
There moves a thread that has no end.
For many hours and days that pass ever soon,
The tides have caused the flame to dim.
At last the arm is straight, the hand to the loom;
Is this to end or it just begin?
