This Freelander was launched in 1997 and was a total change for Land Rover. It went down very well, claiming many motoring awards.
1998 was Land Rover’s 50th Anniversary year and special editions were created for the Range Rover, Discovery, Defender and the Freelander. All had a special Atlantis Blue paint finish, a 50th Anniversary badge and a host of extras. The Range Rover and Defender 50th Anniversary models were numbered with a unique plaque, but the Discovery and Freelander versions were not.
The Freelander was still very new at the time but nevertheless was given the full 50th Anniversary treatment.
This car was found locally and was going to be scrapped having suffered engine damage. We decided to save it and repaired the engine. This is a lot of car for very little money and was considered worth saving.
