A Gorgeous Land Rover Defender Restoration

View all 17 Photos

Elegant, rugged, and exquisitely executed. This Land Rover Defender restoration project shows how a talented team can make a beautiful car look simply gorgeous. Cool & Vintage stripped this gem to the bare chassis before working their magic, with unsurprisingly stunning results. The minimalist aesthetic allows the silhouette of the classic design to shine through, while the Light Blue paint job gives this Defender a brand new personality.

Designed to handle just about anything, the custom build boasts bespoke water and UV-resistant seats as well as a rugged interior that will handle off-road trips through water and sand. Other features include a custom mohair soft top and military-style windows. The heavy-duty wheels come with 5 BF Goodrich Mud tires, making this beauty ready for beach adventures. To present the build in all its glory, Cool & Vintage set up a photo shoot in a beautiful natural landscape that also seems to include a floating house, with the warm colors making the blue tone the car stand out.
