Vintage Land Rover Defenders by West Coast Defender

Dec 4, 2019

Category: Rides

Few vehicles get our adrenaline pumping quite like the iconic Land Rover Defender, and the team at West Coast Defender is looking to bring these beauties to America for automotive enthusiasts.

Stateside residents know just how difficult it is to get one of these classic vehicles here in the good ‘ole USA, which is the exact reason Matthew Pearlman started his Los Angeles based West Coast Defender. The company essentially hunts down 25 plus year old Defenders, and puts them through a 230 checkpoint restoration program on the path to restoration. This restoration puts the vehicle in absolute pristine condition, complete with infotainment unit, Bluetooth connectivity, premium leather interior, and much more. Each of these bad boys will cost you around $100,000, and West Coast Defender looks to sell around 100 units per year.
