Our frame-up restoration of the Land Rover Defender is a painstaking processthat leaves no part untouched. It’s obsessive. It’s compulsive. But the end resultis worthy of the automotive icon.
Search and Arrival
All Heritage Driven base vehicles are legally imported to our facility in the U.S. Each vehicle must meet both our specific standards and very stringent requirements established by the U.S. Government. All of our vehicles are imported in their original condition and all work is done in the U.S. Our customers never have to worry about the headache of importing, shipping, customs, taxes and registration in the U.S. as we have these trucks in our shop long before our customers place their orders.
When it comes to customizing a Heritage Driven Defender, the options are endless, and thechoices are personal. Each build is uniquely tailored to a customer’s lifestyle and tastes. Westart the customization process with a deep dive into how you envision using your new Defender.Off-road versus street driving, digging yourself out of mud or a mall parking lot, hitting the highwayor cruising downtown – answers to these questions will help us build a vehicle that meets your needs.
From changes to the drive train and extreme suspension to highly customized interiors and paint colors, if you can think of it, we’ll make it a reality.
Dismantle and Rebuild
We strip down each vehicle to the chassis and start over. Every single part is either repaired or replaced. Every Heritage Driven vehicle is built by hand piece by piece. Not a single bolt is left untouched. It’s a lot of work but this is the only way to doit right. The drivetrain is designed and built to match the clients' desires. Interiors are fully revamped with effective soundproofing (something the original vehicles never quite mastered), new custom seating and interiors, upgraded electronics, brakesystems, suspensions, lighting, and beautifully straight body panels.
Our attention to detail has been called obsessive for a reason. At every stage, we do a thorough quality inspection to ensure that the vehicle we build is mechanically sound and meets customer specifications and our rigorous standards.
Depending on customer specifications, a full frame-up rebuild of a Land Rover Defender can take between 4 and 6 months to complete. Our build schedulefills up quickly so let us know if you have a hard deadline.
Finishing and Delivery
While quality control is maintained throughout the build process, we run everyDefender through a comprehensive inspection and road test before delivery to ensure that every feature and function meets our rigorous standards. We will even deliver it to your door.
