East Coast Defender Venice

We just canīt get enough of East Coast Defenderīs custom builds. Project Venice is the name of one of the latest masterpieces to roll out of their Florida-based workshop. This isnīt as impressive as other ECD customizations, but that is what we love about it, they simply took an already perfect Defender 90, and made it even more awesome with subtle changes and details. They fitted it with a powerful Chevrolet LS3 engine, an automatic transmission, 16” wheels, BFG KO2 tires, and added a sports suspension, a Momo steering wheel, Corbeau racing seats, LED Lights, touch screen navigation, and an Alpine entertainment system. Yes please. 
 
If you’re interested, East Coast Defender is currently taking reservations for 2017 builds.
