East Coast Defender (ECD) is set to roll out its Heritage Collection.
Like its namesake implies, the new Heritage Collection sets the standard for a classic-built Defender by appealing to the hard-core Defender enthusiasts that love and respect the classic elements of the iconic Defender brand, according to ECD.
ECD was founded to stoke the company’s founders’ passion for all things automotive and more specifically, their love of the classic lines and personality of the Land Rover Defender. With years of building full custom-built Defenders under their belt, now seemed like the perfect time to fulfill their passion for the true Defender, according to the company.
“We are pleased to announce the integration of the E.C.D. Heritage Collection alongside our full custom builds at the Rover Drome,” said Tom Humble, co-owner and founder of ECD. “Building a custom Land Rover Defender is a complicated process; the gains we have made in our production line over the past few years will allow the Heritage style Defender to move through the facility much quicker than previous build types.”
The Heritage Collection includes Defenders with:
- Air conditioning
- 16-inch Boost Alloy or steel wheels with BF Goodrich T/A tires
- Folding side steps or full-length steps
- Marine-grade carpet
- Cubby box with raised arm rest
- Checker plates all around
- Momo heritage-style steering wheel
- Exmoor trimmed classic seating
- LED lighting all around
- Genuine rubber mats
- Full re-spray in color of choice
- Slim-line front bumper
The all-new Heritage Collection is just one of the newest product lines being manufactured at the recently expanded ECD headquarters in Kissimmee, Florida, known as the Rover Dome.
