Project Hartigan

1996 Land Rover Defender 110 - 300Tdi - County Wagon

Heritage Build Defender

Project Hartigan was another complete nut-and-bolt restoration by the Bishop+Rook team.  We stripped this vehicle down to the chassis to start with a new foundation. Project Hartigan was part of our challenge to convert the ugliest donor Defender we could find into something that could be drive daily, with great pride.  We feel like we’ve been extremely successful.
