Land Rover has announced that it will be launching a new division to support its older models on today’s roadways.
The British automaker is launching a heritage division that will be managed by Jaguar Land Rover’s special operations unit and will complement the recently-launched Jaguar heritage program. Both programs are setup to provide parts and support for vehicles that are at least 10 years out of production. Vehicle owners will be able to purchase new body, trim and extended-service items for the Range Rover Classic, while the Range Rover P38 and Discovery 1 and 2 will offer salvage and extended-service parts.
The company also plans on reintroducing more original part numbers for the Series I, II and III models and all components will be manufactured with original tooling methods and will come with a warranty.
“We are delighted to launch Land Rover Heritage, which perfectly complements the recent introduction of Jaguar Heritage,” said JLR Special Operations managing director John Edwards. “It is estimated that 70% of all Land Rovers manufactured since 1948 are still in existence so there is a large and very passionate owner base to support through Land Rover Heritage.”
