Default Here are some of my details, what am I, and why did I die?

I was conceived over the Easter holiday.
I am neither LHD nor RHD.
I could be seen on the road in September of the same year.
I was destroyed the following year along with all evidence.
But, my legacy lives on today.


(Both questions need to be answered this time to be correct.)

Even though I never "grew", my decendants went from 80 inches to 86, to 88, to 107, finally 109 inches. Who am I?

The answer...

The Centre Steer is the name given by enthusiasts to the prototype of the Land Rover 4x4 automobile. Being a prototype, only one example was built and the production vehicle differed significantly in many ways. Developed in late 1947 by the Rover Motor Co. The Centre Steer was used as a concept of the basic design and mechanical elements and was used for promotional photographs for the first sales brochure, however these pictures were heavily air brushed to look like a normal early Land Rover. The Centre Steer used a Rover 1.6 litre 4-cylinder gas engine of 50 horsepower (37 kW). This was coupled to a 4-speed manual gearbox from the Rover P3 saloon. This unit was coupled to a Willys/Ford 2-speed transfer gearbox taken from a Jeep. The prototype used the original Jeep steering gear and frame also. The legend has it that it was destroyed to prevent Willys from discovering that it was basically an MB with a replacement body. Remember from my previous trivia post that this is the same time frame in which Willys was sued by Bantam for fraud.
