If you’re thinking about buying a Range Rover Classic (or even if you’re not), you might enjoy this North American promotional video for the 1989 model year.

Here’s a good video demo video from Bridgestone Australia for their latest Dueler light truck tire. It’s got some nice off-road footage and some basic driving suggestions.

 

Continuing on the Grand Wagoneer theme, here’s a dealer commercial for the 1973 Grand Wagoneer. The narrator enthusiastically states that the rear seat is standard, not an optional extra.

It’s funny to look back at the history of the SUV. On this full-time 4-wheel-drive system, the lock-out for the center differential was in the glove box!

As long as I’m on the subject of Pinzgauers, here’s an early, factory promotional film touting the benefits of the 710 (4×4) and 712 (6×6) models to the tune of a swinging soundtrack.

This fantastic Land Cruiser promotional video from the early 1980s, called Getting Through, demonstrates various driving skills filmed throughout Australia. It features footage from sandy beaches to snowy mountain tops and covers the following:

Rocky terrain
River crossings
Beach and dune driving
Winch anchoring
Snow driving

The tips and techniques (many of which were new to me), and animated illustrations are excellent. The vintage TV-detective-show soundtrack and mustaches are hilarious.

Very informative, very entertaining, and highly recommended.

Here’s something for all of you G-Wagen fans, a short promotional film for the Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
