For Sale: 1978 Land Rover Defender in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to present this rare 1978 Land Rover Defender Safari 109 for sale. The Land Rover was conceived by the Rover Company in 1947 during the aftermath of World War II. Before the war, Rover had produced luxury cars which were not in demand in the immediate post-war period and raw materials were strictly rationed to those companies building construction or industrial equipment, or products that could be widely exported to earn crucial foreign exchange for the country. Because of the tight financial position in this period of British Leyland (which owned Land Rover), Santana's were often better placed than Land Rover was to deal with these failings. This meant that Santana began to engineer its own solutions to common problems into the models it produced and thus arose a degree of originality in Santana's models compared to Land Rover's original products - a trend that led to the company's position today. Land Rover is known the world over for its capabilities off road. Whether it is the Sahara, the Amazon, the Mojave, or the Alaskan Outback, Land Rover is no stranger. Powering this Land Rover is the original smooth 2.25 Liter Inline 4 Diesel backed by a 4-Speed Manual Transmission. The character of this Landy is unmistakable utilitarian and ready for its next adventure!
