History of Jaguar Land Rover Minneapolis

In 1970, Jaguar Land Rover Minneapolis (JLR) purchased the British Leyland Franchises from B&K imports and moved them to their newly constructed facility in downtown Minneapolis. This state of the art, all enclosed building, included two levels of show floors and three levels of service. JLR sold and serviced MG, Austin Healey, Austin Marina, Jensen, Triumph, Jaguar and Land Rover. In 1981 British Leyland stopped production on all models except for Jaguar and Land Rover.
