This is Where Old Land Rovers Go Instead of Dying

SUV

West Coast Defender turns classic models into modern SUVs.

What could be cooler than taking a classic Land RoverDefender out into the wild for some epic off-roading? These beasts from 1980shave literally traversed just about any natural barrier all across the globe,taking rich holiday-makers and angry armies wherever they had to go. Butusing a truck like this as a daily driver would be equally challenging, withits bare-bones 1980s rugged comforts not exactly what American drivers are used to ontheir everyday commutes.

That’s why a California company named West Coast Defenderhas begun buying-up these classic Defender 90s and 110s dating back to 1989 andearlier. At its UK shop, the company rebuilds the classic SUVs, fitting themwith brand-new interiors including everything from heated seats to navigationsystems and power-locks, even automatic transmissions. Once they are completed,the Defenders are imported to the US, where they sell for $85,000-110,000.
