Cool & Vintage are one of Lisbon’s definitive vehicle customization companies, delivering a steady stream of heritage classics that seem to get better with age. And while their most recent project might not be their most “underutilized” vehicle to date, the 2013 Land Rover D90 certainly boasts a character all its own.
The D90 in question is truly one-of-a-kind — outfitted with Bespoke Cognac Connolly leather trim and a handsome utilitarian Keswick Green colorway, the iconic Defender has taken a different stance on what it means to represent the Land Rover name. Utilized as a shop truck for most of its life, Cool & Vintage’s diesel D90 omits the platform’s original rear shell and transitions swimmingly into a rugged, nostalgic pickup. It’s been outfitted with a Marshall wireless sound system and an updated A/C unit to provide the creature-comforts of modern-day vehicles (albeit, with a little more “oomph”), and comes complete with all of the well-designed principles you’d expect from the brand. The off-road-ready Defender has been listed for sale on Cool & Vintage’s website — but if you’re looking for an exact price, you’re going to have to inquire directly.
