East Coast Defender’s ‘Project Ironhorse’ Is A Throwback To The Original

By now you have to know how much we adore Land Rover Defenders and especially those that are part of the East Coast Defenders family. Today, we have their most recent build to show you and it is nothing short of spectacular. Even its name, which “Project Ironhorse” is completely badass.

The goal for “Project Ironhorse” was for this build to represent an ECD Heritage build that is a true throwback to the original. Rather than reinventing the wheel with this project, ECD rebuilt Ironhorse to stay as close to the original specifications, which includes a 4.6L Land Rover V8 that traces its roots back to the original Defenders. The outcome is a Defender purist’s dream.

Check out more of Project Ironhorse, and its detailed spec, below.
