Featured Land Rover Defender Builds

Sample Bishop+Rook Land Rover Defender restoration projects done over the years.

Sopris II

A complete nut-and-bolt restoration of a classic Land Rover Defender 90 County Wagon – which we converted to refined soft-top cruiser.  Fit for the city as much as the country with a satin Nardo Grey finish, split series doors, and a completely rebuilt power package.

Chief

Chief started its life as a Fire Chief’s support vehicle in Northern Spain before coming to the Bishop+Rook workshop for a complete body off restoration and customization. We stayed true to the Land Rover Defender 110’s original adventurous lifestyle by rebuilding and tuning the 200tdi and suspension to give it modern performance, while wrapping it in a beautiful Aintree Green paint job, custom roof rack, winch bull bar, and LED light package.

Black Rebel

We completely refreshed and restored nearly every aspect of this Defender. The chassis was treated and painted to look factory fresh. The motor and mechanicals were all extensively serviced. We upgraded electronics to included a unique combination of LED lights and stereo package. The interior was tastefully re-trimmed to a more modern style.

Project Skye

We wanted to maintain Skye’s original character and personality, while preparing her for a life of adventures across America. We resprayed her in her original color, while adding a few modern styling features – fitting to her use and purpose.

Sophie

We were inspired by the minimalist designs from Cool n Vintage in Portugal when was started this project, but wanted to put our own unique twist on our approach. Additionally, we wanted to make this the ultimate beach cruiser by mating a completely rebuilt 300Tdi to an Automatic gearbox using a custom Bishop+Rook conversion kit.

Project Overlander (Rocky)

We built this Land Rover Defender 110 300Tdi to serve as a capable overland rig. We performed a sympathetic restoration of the interior to maintain the originality of the vehicle, but we completely refreshed the mechanical elements of the Defender – while converting it to an automatic transmission using our custom Bishop+Rook conversion kit.

Girona

Girona shares her name with a city in Spain’s northeastern Catalonia region, known for medieval architecture and Roman remains.  As much of the original history of the city remains, we felt the name fitting for such an original classic Land Rover Defender 90 Preservation Series, as well.

Carmen

Our goal was to create a classic Land Rover Defender beach cruiser that was just as capable on paved roads as she might be cruising across loose sand.  We added a few luxury touches with custom leather-trimmed seats and flip-down rear tailgate designed for picnics.

Talisker

This project was designed to create a daily driving Land Rover Defender 90, with tasteful and elegant upgrades to put it in a class of its own.  Talisker features a beautiful Nara Bronze exterior, with custom wheels and soft-top – complemented by a one-of-a-kind leather trimmed interior and supported by a completely rebuilt and tuned 300Tdi 5-speed running on an air-ride suspension system.

Grimes

Grimes was completely disassembled down to the chassis. Each panel was individually body worked and painted, to achieve a top-quality finish. The color transformation from white to green gave Grimes the classic heritage style we were looking for. We kept the interior as it left the factory, but added an ice-cold under dash air conditioning system.

The Beast

We created this Land Rover Defender 110 to be the go anywhere, do anything vehicle we always dreamed of at the workshop.  It was a former search and rescue vehicle that we turned into an American overlander.
