Land rovers were built of aluminum because they got it cheap from the British Goverment from war surplus, Range Rovers were built from Aluminum because that is what they used to build a cheap mockup body to cover the running gear and driver on the prototypes and they even kept the same boxy utilitarian shape knocked up as a temp body.
