Overfinch will turn your classic Land Rover Defender into a unique restomod
The famed UK-based company is set to create 12 "remastered" Defenders that are bound for US soil.
It may be best-known for modifying the latest and greatest Range Rover models, but UK-based tuning company Overfinch has turned its hand to the growing restomod business, and the first candidate the company has its eyes set on is the original Land Rover Defender.
A vehicle surrounded by renewed interest after the launch of the new 'second-generation' model – if you can really call it that – the company has its sights set on the US market with the limited run of 12 cars it's set to "remaster".
Using carefully selected Defender examples that are over 25 years old, the company plans to fit them with modern crate engines and transmissions, and will offer each completed car with a 12 month warranty on the work that's been done.
Although the models will all feature Overfinch's signature styling touches, customers can commission all sorts of bespoke options, including a modern Land Rover dashboard, different seats with a range of upholstery options, and more.
While the first 12 remastered Defenders are set to be completed using an array of 90 and 110 models chosen by the company, it has noted that customers can bring their own vehicles forward to be upgraded if they meet the standards required for the intensive modification process it will go through.
Speaking with CarBuzz, Alex Sloane, Vice President of Overfinch North America, notes that the new Overfinch Heritage program addresses a growing demand, particularly Stateside, for classic vehicles reworked to better meet modern standards.
"Overfinch Heritage will address a major opportunity to satisfy the demand for restomod Land Rover vehicles in North America," said Sloane.
"Remastering allows us to create enhancements and proprietary Overfinch upgrades that simply wouldn't have featured in the classic production car. We intend for our customers to create something truly personal while guiding them to retain the classically British character of the original vehicle."
