LAND ROVER SPECIALISTS
We are the eldest Mid-Atlantic "Land Rover" only Restoration Shop.
We charge $65 an hour for us turning wrenches, because we are a Land Rover Enthusiast company, not some corporate investment firm with sales people. For full off restorations (starting @ 500 hours) we reduce that labor to $60 an hour as reflected in our restoration sales figures.
We are based out of greater Washington D.C. Metro area just off of interstate 81 and 70 in the Quad State area (WV, VA, MD, PA) but do travel as far as Delaware and Ohio to collect vehicles for restoration. This is done at $1.50 a mile and $35 hourly labor.
ICONIC European Defenders handcrafted in the USA
We work on Land Rover Defenders daily and rebuild them here locally in the USA, by Americans for American roadways with pride and passion.
We are a one stop shop! Our company does all the work from, buying and importing Defenders, dealing with customs, registering and licenseing them. When you buy a vehicle from us there are no countless hoops to jump through or endless promises of 'it' will make it through customs and 'it' be registerable or any hidden costs such as import taxes and DMV fees which could add to thousands of dollars. Quite simply, all our vehicles come with American titles because we do business in America.
Our nut and bolt rebuilt Land Rover Defenders roam the back woods or pavement jungles from California to Florida. While each build is uniquely different, ranging from rebuilt original heritage editions (200/300tdi) to the mental builds with the 5.9L Cummins Diesel, Mercedes Diesel options or GM LS V8's, they are all equally distinctive and different at the same time.
WE ARE FAR MORE THAN YOUR LOCAL LAND ROVER PARTS CHANGERS
We are more than a parts changing place, aside from building cars from the ground up, we do the same with our Engines.

BE INVOLVED IN YOUR CAR, BUILD WHAT YOU WANT, RATHER THAN SETTLE FOR WHAT IS OUT THERE.
We have long been lusting for high quality built availablity in the North American Defender market. We offer the option to build a "Forever Defender" in the sub six figure market, which is an industry leading full galvanized vehicle that can be passed down through the generations if maintained. Talk with the experienced and product knowledge experts who understand what it takes to build a 'new' Land Rover from scratch and to keep the old ones going. Knowing what to use here and what product not to use there, sets us apart from the blue bag builders. Having owned numerous and daily running various Land Rover's (Defender, Series, Range Rover Classic, Discovery) gives us the unique ability to relate and also the know how, as we gone through nearly every conceivable problem under the sun with the older generation Land Rover’s. From soft top conversions to chassis swaps to nut and bolt restorations on Defender’s to suspension lifts on Discovery 2’s, or air spring replacement on the L322, nothing is too inconceivable. We invite you to reach out with your idea's of what is the perfect car for you. We trust that we can make your dream and the reality intersect at a future date.
We work 6 days a week, but are only available in the weekend by appointment.
