Seeking to make a bold statement, two best friends commissioned ECD Automotive Design to build them a pair of identical Land Rover Defender 90 soft top SUVs. At first glance, the vehicles are indistinguishable from one another; but look inside and you’ll find that each is unique in its own right. Project 67 and Project Flamingo exude individual styles while still retaining their signature bond as sister cars.
Crafted with a distinct Keswick green hue and contrasting black canvas roof, it’s easy to see why these restomods are popular. Additionally, 16-inch deep-dish black wheels wrapped in BFGoodrich all-terrain tires ensure that the vehicles stand out from the crowd. To top off this unique package, four LED spotlights and a matching lug nut finish complete the look of these incredible Land Rovers with their signature black roll cages.
Wrapping up the similarities is what lies beneath both of these SUVs – General Motors’ LS3 V8 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, as well as ECD air suspension and EBC brakes. To top it off, each is fitted with Borla dual exhausts for an added boost in power and performance.
Project 67 was equipped with a Momo Prototipo steering wheel, and the seats and steering wheel were custom-wrapped in luxurious Cadence Moon Rock leather. This Defender also features two inward-facing benches for added seating space, along with 110 volts outlet, a wireless charger to keep your devices powered up on road trips, and rear air conditioning for additional comfort.
Project Flamingo stands apart from its counterparts with an interior that is finished in Cadence Lentil leather and a Nardi Challenge steering wheel wrapped in the same material. Instead of two inward-facing bench seats, one single seat takes up the backspace which also sets it distinctly apart from similar models.
Presenting the wide range of preferences clients may select from to make their ideal, one-of-a-kind truck is precisely what these two SUVs demonstrate,” noted ECD co-founder Scott Wallace. Adding an extra layer of value and exclusivity are the fact that every Defender built by ECD will never be replicated – so his Land Rovers become a special token representing their friendship.
