The Base Restoration

This Land Rover started it’s life as a simple Arles Blue Defender 90 that had covered nearly 200,000 miles.  It was a perfect donor to be re-born as a Heritage Inspired Land Rover Defender Soft-Top.

A Timeless Classic

This Defender 90 was stripped down to the chassis, with every nut and bolt refreshed, restored, or replaced with new.  We completely rebuilt every mechanical aspect fo the 300Tdi engine, R380 gearbox, transfer case, and the rest of the mechanical components.

Heritage + Style

The goal was to create a unique Defender that looks like it could have come straight off a working farm.  Simple utility, but with comfort, performance, and style in mind.
