Overland views: tracks only a rover could love

In the 1950s and 60s there was only one vehicle which could reliably access many areas of the African continent. The Land Rover Series 2 was released in 1958 with several improvements aimed at its new primary role as a vehicle for overland exploration and off-road travel in support situations. The Series 2a was released in 1961 with further improvements to the engine and other areas and are considered some of the most hardy and iconic of the Land Rover models.
