As excited as we are about all the upcoming variations of the new Ford Raptors, electric SUVs and supertrucks, it’s the classic vintage SUVs like old school Land Rovers that really tickle our fancy. In case their restoration of a 1986 Chevy Silverado wasn’t indication enough, Classic Car Studios knows how to make just about anything beautiful. This 1971 Land Rover Defender Series II they made might be our favorite one of their creations to date, and it doesn’t even have a thousand horsepower engine in it. For starters, the Poppy Red paint job with gloss back accents and matching leather interior is nothing short of breathtaking. It wouldn’t be a Classic Car Studios creation if all they did was slap on new paint and redo the interior, so they rebuilt or replaced just about everything else from the 2.25 liter engine and carb to the transmission and differentials. Even the undercarriage on the truck has been detailed to better than new.
