Buy a used Defender SWB and Do this!
Want to have a retro looking 4×4 with a modern twist? Well here is a possible tune for you if you are looking at a short wheel base Land Rover Defender.
Codenamed Project Barbour, this one-off Defender is finished in a lovely Coniston Green paint job with color-matching wheels, a Rovers North beige soft top with the Barbour logo affixed, and added detailing to the grille and headlights.
In the cabin, a Momo Indy steering wheel has been fitted alongside saddle leather seats with Barbour Tartan inserts, Barbour Tartan door pockets with Barbour zip closure, and a Kenwood stereo with Infinity speakers. Power comes courtesy of a rebuilt Rover V8 engine, which is paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. Naturally, the build retains all of its iconic off-road capabilities, even with the added fashion elements.
