CORGI VANGUARD VA11108 O SCALE Land Rover Series 1 80 - AA Road Service
The Land Rover was launched in 1948 in order to get a product to the market in the immediate aftermath of World War Two. Rover envisaged it would be sold to farmers, and initially underestimated demand for the vehicle.

The AA Series 1 modelled here is typical in that once the Land Rover was on the market, organisations all over the world realized it was the answer to their problem, and put it to a bewildering amount of uses. With hindsight, it's obvious that its towing capacity, storage, and go anywhere ability make the Land Rover an ideal vehicle for an organisation like the AA.

The AA was formed over a century ago, when cycle 'scouts' on push bikes were used to patrol the roads of the day to combat police persecution. It was the scouts' responsibility to alert its members to police speed traps and from this the iconic AA badge evolved.

It wasn't until 1949 that the AA introduced four-wheel vehicles and the Land Rover was one of the first to be deployed in London.

Ideal for an organisation like the AA due to its power and versatility, the Landie was soon introduced to other parts of the country.
