Coming Soon, this shows the project status on 12/14/17.  can be completed in as little as two weeks, and can still be customized for your needs and wants.  Below is a list of whats intended or already on the truck!  Please call to cover specifics.




This started its life as a bone stock 1983 land rover defender 110, but  Ebay would not except the import vin #salldhmv1aa199886. Complete top to bottom restoration was completed November 2017.  The vehicle has been stored inside a climate controlled storage keeping the restoration looking fresh.

About the rebuild and restoration, the vehicle was carefully taken apart and taken all the way down to the frame, the frame was galvanized and then powder coated.  At the same time the bulkhead was replaced to the modern PUMA style with excellent heat and air conditioning vents that help keep the inside a comfortable temp year round.

The majority of the body was treated to updated, new take off and new panels.   All of the body was painted in separate pieces, and then carefully re assembled on the chassis.   The interior is color matched painted in separate pieces then assembled.     The outside was painted with high grade paint using only Land Rover paint colors.   Has a new style NAS bumper.  

The complete original drive train was scrapped and in its place is the heart of America muscle was installed.    It now has an LS3 turning out low 465hp, with a 6l80e transmission.  Brand new transfer case with all new heavy duty drive shafts.   All of the axles have been upgraded to heavy duty parts from the ring and pinion, axle shafts and CV’s.   To make sure it can stop it has all new brakes consisting of red calipers, along with vented and slotted rotors.    Mounted to the 17 inch land rover Predator Rims and wrapped in General Grabber Red letter tires.

The inside was upgraded now featuring 7 leather seats, featuring heated front  seats.  The Suede headliner above, and the plush leather protected by the heavy duty factory rubber floor mats.   It now has power, along with keyless entry, more options never offered in a defender through the factory.  Kenwood stereo with DVD, Bluetooth back up camera etc.   Several charging points have been added along with a very nice JL speaker and audio system providing great musical sound in the truck.
