There’s a reason why the Land Rover Defender is one of the most sought-after off-roaders in history. And if you’re a fan, there are plenty of shops that can turn your old-school four-wheeler into something that will take you on your next adventure.
Which Defender model is best?
Among them, Florida-based ECD Automotive Design, formerly East Coast Defender, is one of the biggest names in American Land Rover restoration. They’ll take your classic Defender, or even a Series II model, and give it all the modern comfort and convenience features you can think of, like a premium sound system with Alpine electronics.
The interior looks a little more luxurious than the bare-bones Defenders of past generations, thanks to a hand-stitched leather cabin. The front seats are heated and ventilated in super-soft black and panda charcoal leather, while the back gets two forward-facing jump seats for added comfort. Read more : ecdautodesign.com
While the custom Defender 110 may look a bit bare-bones, it has everything you need for a serious off-roader. Among the upgrades, this vehicle gets an LS3 V8 engine that produces 565 hp of power, and a full stainless steel Borla exhaust system.
It also gets a set of Fox shocks and Old Man Emu springs for added stability. And, it rides on 18-inch Land Rover Sawtooth wheels wrapped with 37-inch Federal Xplora M/T tires.
In addition to all the above, there’s also the option of adding a roof rack, snorkel and auxiliary lights, plus a winch and fender flares. It’s a true one-of-a-kind beauty that will demand to be driven.
