History – Overview

We love the history of old Land Rovers

At Revised we not only like old stuff, but we’re also passionate about the history of old Land Rovers.

For years we have been doing research spending countless hours in archives and libraries, scanning old documents, photographs and film reels. And occasionally a small treasure turns up on an attic or in a private collection.

Discover on this page a selection of projects that we did recently.
