The guys at Cool & Vintage from Montijo, Portugal understand classic cars and their appeal perfectly like no other. Their restorations are gleamy clean and highly desirable; something that only increases once you have a look at the way they present them. Thanks to Ricardo, co-founder at Cool & Vintage, we recently were able to get a tour of their gorgeous workshop thats scattered with gorgeous period-correct automobilia and some tasty cars prepared. In the feature, an astute observer might notice an incredible lineup of Land Rover Defenders in one of the photos, under wraps and ready to be delivered. This here is one of those gorgeous builds that has now made it out to the cool sandy beaches of Montijo, Portugal.
The Land Rover Defender you see here is a 2002 model that has been fully restored by Cool & Vintage. This TD5 diesel that shifts via a 5-speed gearbox has been inspired by military defenders, thus the flat grey and black coat of paint is only fitting to give it the appropriate rugged military look that the guy had aimed for. The beautiful restoration comes with a specially made black mohair soft top with the Cool & Vintage Logo and hashtag on it. For ensuring that the build is not only a looker but can truly off-road, it has been adorned by BF Goodrich mud tyres that are installed on heavy duty wheels.
