Land Rover Defender D90 ‘Retro Vibes’

So frequently we see that custom car builders and restoration specialists can be pretty overzealous with their projects. We believe, however, that sometimes a truly keen eye and skillful hands instead require restraint. That’s the case with this 1996 Land Rover Defender D90 ‘Retro Vibes’ from the folks at Cool And Vintage.

If you’re familiar with this custom workshop, you already know they are famous for doing some exceedingly good frame-off restorations. But they also know when to stay their hand. So when they came across this very clean D90, rather than rebuilding it from the ground up, they just added a few upgrades here and there – namely turning it into a soft top and giving it an ’80s retro striped paint scheme – and turned it into a shop car. Now whenever the mood strikes or the surf is too good to pass up, the guys at this Lisbon-based shop can hop into this vintage ride and head down to the shore.
