Old Land Rover ads

I had the great fortune of recieving from my grandparents a complete set of Desert Magazine from 1937 to it's end sometime in the mid 80's. Today I was looking through issues in the mid to late 60's and found several Land Rover ads and a few Land Rovers pictured in articles. Thought some of you may like to see some of the ads.

Wow, very cool.

Looking at the address on the scans it says that The Rover Motor Company of North America was located at 10889 Wilshire Blvd, LA 90024. That's about three blocks from my apartment in Westwood. There's a highrise building and an large art museum at that site now. Because there's no suite number listed on the ad, I'm guessing it was a small office building at the time. Just thought it was interesting that the old LRNA was so close to my home (many years before I was born in '77)...hope I didn't bore ya!
