“Bob really raised the profile of our nation of Jamaica and we felt the greatest gift we could give to him was to restore his original Land Rover to its former glory,” said Sandals CEO Adam Stewart. “Marley’s Land Rover is one of the most famous vehicles in automotive history and we were delighted when the opportunity arose to be a part of its restoration. For us it has been an unbelievable privilege working with the entire Marley family and to reunite them with the same vehicle they rode around in as children is something we were only too pleased to do. Our journey to restoring this vehicle took us to some places where Marley himself had strong ties making the project even meaningful."
“In this 70th year, the Defender’s return to its home is in perfect timing as we celebrate all aspects of our father Bob Marley on his birthday February 6. The Marley Family thanks ATL,ITC and Sandals for this labour of love,” noted Marley’s first-born daughter and fashion designer Cedella. “
