John Craddock Ltd Magazine (Uncategorized)

Launched back in 1948 at the Amsterdam Motor Show, the Land Rover Series 1 is easily one of the most iconic off-road vehicles ever produced in Britain. Designed to rove the land whatever the terrain, the vehicle has definitely earned its place in British motoring history as 70 years on, the vehicle is still admired by millions worldwide.

For the team here at John Craddock Ltd, the Series 1 holds a special place in our hearts as it was this very model which started our journey back in 1968, when John Craddock himself purchased a 1948 Series 1 Land Rover for just £50.00. What started out as a hobby, attending Land Rover rallies up and down the country, quickly turned into a thriving business as parts for classic models gradually became scarce. Combining his growing passion with an eye for business, John started to offer parts and spares to fellow Land Rover enthusiasts, gradually building a reputation for being one of the UK’s most trusted providers of Land Rover parts and spares.
