When Rover introduced the SWB Land Rover back in 1953 it had a wheel base of 2185mm. The current Jimny wheel base is 2250mm (which is 50mm shorter than a Fiat 500).

The Jimny has a surprisingly long wheelbase for its size, it 2" longer than a SWB Vitara.

Some Suzukis and a bunch of motorcycles.

In the late 60's a popular mod to increase the track without using spacers on Stock Cars was to reverse the rim on the centres. The inset became the offset and vice versa.
The centres of steel wheels in those days had flanges which had rivets and a short bead weld to hold them in place.

I was talking to a guy in Halfords car park on Monday. He was driving his Land Rover which was 53 years old - makes that the 60's.

WAS THAT YOU?
