Any day that I get to feature a Land Rover Defender from East Coast Defender is a damn good day. Today, we have Project Honey Badger, a fully restored Defender 90 that is powered by a 6.2-liter, 430-hp Chevrolet LS3 V-8 engine. Project Honey Badger also marks the introduction of a new transmission option from East Coast Defender LS3 drivetrain lineup with the T56 six-speed manual transmission. This new transmission makes the Defender 90 capable of 0-60 in under six seconds. WHOA!
Inside, the new owner of this $159,000 beauty will find upgrades like a Kenwood infotainment center with backup camera and wifi, JBL speakers with subwoofer, full LED lighting, classic instruments Moal Bomber gauges, and ivory leather Corbeau seats with black accent stitching.
Other features include:
- Upgraded transfer case with limited slip differential
- Borla Exhaust
- Ron Davis Radiator
- Stainless brake and fuel lines
- Full roll cage
- 18” Sawtooth wheels with BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2 tires.
- Quark steering wheel by MOMO
- Porsche Dunkelolive Metallic paint
