Further Notes

The current interior of this Defender 130 could be upgraded.  We left the original interior in place for now, as some people using this as a hunting or offroad rig might appreciate the simplicity. It’s still very clean and sharp.  We have complete trimming options that would allow us to upgrade or enhance the current interior, if requested.

Starting The Process

For those of you just starting your research on Defenders, there are a few areas you will want to learn about (maintenance, driving experience, and budget).  For the last part – budget – we’ve recently launched a “Defender Budget Pricing Calculator” to help folks understand the different levels of pricing you should expect to see on the market.


A Defender for Everyone

Whether you’re looking for a unique low-mileage Defender survivor or a complete nut-and-bolt bespoke restoration, we want to be the team that provides you with your dream vehicle. When other companies focus on cheap mechanical nightmares, or Defenders costing the same price as a house, we focus instead on – Defenders for the regular person. All of our Defenders undergo an extensive mechanical refresh to ensure years of reliable adventures.  From there, you can decide how much further you want to go with a restoration.

Maintaining the charm and character of a vintage Land Rover Defender pays respect the adventures that came before, while planning adventures yet to to be explored.

Restore only what’s needed. Refresh the rest for peace of mind.
