1979 Land Rover Defender Series 3 ‘Blacked Out’

Portugal is undoubtedly the European surf capital, thanks to its legendary Atlantic Ocean shores. It’s also from where classic vehicle customizers Cool N Vintage hail. And that makes them uniquely equipped to built a superb beach-going SUV, like this drop-dead gorgeous 1979 Land Rover Series 3 Defender.

Done up in matte black from tip to tail, this old-school ride is a head-turner to be sure. And that all-black theme extends to the redone vinyl interior, as well as the safari-style soft top. And while the exterior is certainly noteworthy, everything under the facade has been gone over with a fine-tooth comb, as well. Including its 2250 diesel engine, the whole rig went through a comprehensive restoration within the last decade. Best part is, you can probably put her in your garage, so long as you reach out to Cool N Vintage to inquire.
