1988 Range Rover (3.5 EFI) I just bought in Dubai... the car has 6,800kms... The rims will have to go as soon as I find a set of original ones, the rest of the car is...100% original.

About Atlantic British Ltd.
Atlantic British Ltd. is a pioneer in Land Rover parts supply. In 1970, Atlantic British opened for business and became North America's first mail-order resource for maintenance parts. In fact, during 1974 – 1987, when Land Rover's dealer network pulled out of the United States, Atlantic British was one of the very few sources available for Rover accessories and parts.

Many of our "charter customers" are still with us, as are many of their sons and daughters who have also been bitten by the Rover bug.

Over the years, they've taught us a lot about Land Rovers and their owners.

We know you want it fast, so we offer overnight delivery and have expanded our warehouse to fill an average of 97% of your orders from stock when you order by phone by 3pm ET or order online before 12pm ET, Monday - Friday.

We know you want choices, so we provide you with a wide array of premium Land Rover parts, accessories and performance upgrades imported from around the world; many of which are available no where else in North America.

As direct importers, we pay no licensing or import agent fees, and we are free to offer you the very best items for your Rover, be they Genuine Land Rover parts, Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts or quality Aftermarket parts and performance upgrades that enhance your driving experience even more.

We know you want to order with confidence, so everything you buy from us comes with our 1-year warranty against defects and a 30-day return/60-day exchange guarantee. (excluding electrical parts and shop manuals and videos). See our Store Policies page for more details.

We know you want convenience, so we give you the option of ordering many of our routine maintenance items in our exclusive pre-packaged kits. They come complete with everything you or your mechanic need to do the job right the first time - nuts, bolts, pins, clips, seals, gaskets - everything - and only Atlantic British has it!

We know you want information, from tech tips to the latest accessories, so we give you a special Tech Tips section and the most knowledgeable Rover Customer Service Reps in the business are just a phone call away.

We know you want camaraderie, so we provide links to Land Rover Clubs across the continent where you'll find fellow Rover enthusiasts gathering for off-road adventures. (When you join a Club, look for us there. It's not unusual to find an Atlantic British staff member riding along.)

And, after all this, if there is still something you want that you're not finding at Atlantic British, all you have to do is call, write or e-mail us and we'll do our best to get it to you. Because you can't stay in business all these years without being responsive to your customers. No matter how fast we grow or how big we become, that's one thing about Atlantic British that will never change.

You have our word on that.

Happy Rovering,



D*** Taylor

Range Rover History
1884: Starley and Sutton start making the Rover safety cycle - the name stuck and `Rover' still means `bike' in e.g. Poland.
1947: First prototype Land Rovers built (based on the WWII Willys Overland Jeep) including the centre-steer prototype.
1948-1958: Series One (SI) Land Rover
The 80" SWB Land Rover with a 1.6L ioev engine world debut at the Amsterdam motor show 30 April 1948. It featured full-time 4WD with a front free-wheel mechanism which could be locked by a "ring-pull" control. The head-lights were mounted behind the radiator grille (which made them hard to clean). The side-lights were mounted on the fire-wall or bulkhead.
1949: 80" Station-wagon model.
1949: First Land-Rovers used on the Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme (SMHEA).
1949: Head-lights "through" the radiator grille.
1950: Selectable 2WD or 4WD - the free-wheel mechanism dropped.
1951: 2-litre engine. 80" station wagon discontinued.
1952: Exterior door-handles, new inverted-T radiator grill, side-lights on wings.
1953: 107" model introduced; SWB lengthened to 86".
1954: Station wagon reintroduced.
1955: 10-seater LWB station wagon introduced (the ultimate "Meccano" kit car?).
1956: Wheelbases increased by 2" (88" and 109"), except 107" SW.
1957: Optional 2-litre diesel engine. Fully-floating halfshafts on LWB.
1958-1961: Series Two (SII) Land Rover

1958: (April) S2 introduced - 2.25L petrol engine. Some early cars had the old 2-litre petrol engine fitted.
1959: 109" 10 seater station wagon introduced.
1959: November, 250,000th Land-Rover produced.
1961: 2.25L diesel introduced.

1961-1971: Series Two A (SIIA) Land Rover
2.25L petrol or 2.25L diesel engine.

1962: 12-seater LWB station wagon; This could be seen as a tax avoidance measure as 12 seats made it a bus and buses did not carry sales-tax!
1962: Forward Control Land Rover introduced.
1965: (approx') prototypes of the Military Lightweight.
1966: Optional 2.6L 6cyl petrol engine on LWB and FC. Improved FC (series 2B).
500,000th Land-Rover produced.
1967: New dashboard, single concealed wiper motor.
1968: Headlamps move to wings on export models.
1968: Military Lightweight 88" air-transportable.
1969: Stronger Salisbury rear axle on LWB models.
1970: Headlights move to wings (see 1968 above).

1970: Range Rover released (see below)

1971-1983: Series three (SIII) Land Rover

1971: (Oct) Series 3 introduced. New all synchromesh gearbox. 750,000th Land-Rover produced.
1972: Stronger Salisbury rear axle standard on LWB.
1972: SIII version of the Military Lightweight introduced.
1972: Military 101" Forward Control introduced - 3.5L V8, LT95 4-speed full-time 4WD.
1974: End of Land Rover imports into USA (RR imports started 1987).
1976 June: 1,000,000th Land-Rover produced.
1979-1985: Land Rover SI I Stage-1,
leaf-sprung LWB (109"), 3.5L V8, LT95 4-speed full-time 4WD; also an Australian version powered by the Isuzu 3.9L 4BD1 4-cyl diesel.

1981: Camel Trophy switches to Land Rover products - Range Rover in this instance.
1983: Land Rover 110, coil sprung, LWB (110")

1984: Land Rover 90, coil sprung, SWB (actually 92.9").

1997: Modern, small Land Rover, code name CB40, finally revealed and christened Freelander. On sale in UK late 1997. Also used in the 1998 Camel Trophy!

1999 Sept: The `Rover Group' name to disappear except for legal and accounting purposes; with all major decision making taking place at BMW, and no local Rover corporate structure, it is just another `marque' owned by BMW.

2000 March: BMW decides to sell Landrover to Ford for about US$2.7bn, and later Rover cars to a management group `Phoenix'.

2000, July 1: Ford takes control of Land Rover.

2008, March 26: Tata Motors of India agreed to buy LandRover, and Jaguar, from Ford for approximately us$2.3billion (plus a contribution to the J & LR pension fund). The deal was completed on 2 June 2008.
