Jan-Pieter Kroezen, Co-Owner of Heritage Customs, said: “This latest bold, yet sympathetic, Heritage Customs Vintage restomod commission features a satin Moon Dust paint finish. It changes color subtly – depending on the amount of light which hits the body. The body, deliberately, proudly still wears some of its battle scars – instead of being over-restored: an ode to the previous life of this car. The owner of this 1985 Defender V8 was keen to co-design a stylish and understated Vintage model with us. At Heritage Customs, we call this ‘carchitecture’. Together, we opted to paint our Heritage Customs milled aluminum side and bonnet vents; as well as, the bespoke front bumper black – matching the roof and wheels. Non-automotive black leather and quilted Alcantara – also, color-match to the roof and wheels – was applied to trim the seats, dashboard; as well as, rear benches. The floor of the rear compartment was equipped with solid wood. The owner was keen to not make this floor out of teak because, in his view, the rugged Flamed Oak Wood complements the character of this confident Vintage better.
