Land Rover Defender The Huntress By ECD

Sep 5, 2017

East Coast Defender is back with another brilliantly beastly Land Rover build and we couldn’t be happier. Especially because the Florida-based customizers have infused this one with a little local style on top of their already brass-balled flair. And they’ve appropriately dubbed her ‘The Huntress.’

As you might guess, the donor vehicle for this project was a Land Rover Defender 130, but they’ve taken the beefy pickup-bedded SUV to the next level, dropping in a 430-horsepower 6.2-Liter Chevrolet LS3 V8 engine with a six speed automatic transmission. They also lifted her by 2 inches, slapped on a set of 18 inch Boost wheels and BFGoodrich tires, and mounted a tubular WARN winch on the front end. The local style we mentioned comes in the form of the interior’s pair of locally-sourced alligator skin seats – which promise to only look better with age and wear. And they’re mated with brown leather accents throughout the cab, as well as a custom Morel amplified speaker system and a fully loaded Kenwood infotainment rig. It’s a shame that the Huntress is already spoken for, because we’d love to get our hands on her.
