Better-than-new quality, total customization, excellent price

Who knew the death of the Land Rover Defender would fertilize such bounty? The end of official production on January 16, 2016 has led to a new Land Rover Defender that's coming soon and quite unlike the original, along with the Ineos Projekt Grenadier that will be a spiritual successor to the original, and Poland's Land Serwis Defender, which effectively is the original going back to the Series models. The latter company's first showcase is a fully rebuilt and restored 2010 Defender Heritage Limited Edition crew cab pickup.

It's a beautiful but misleading first note, though. What makes the Krakow-based firm special is that it can build an original Series-model Defender from scratch. Land Serwis says it is one of only four companies in the world, and the only one outside the UK, to possess original tooling and plans for parts and spares. Seeking to make a truck better than the original, Land Serwis uses laser-cut frame members that are from one to six millimeters thicker than the steel Land Rover originally used. Instead of lacquering the frames for corrosion prevention as Land Rover did, the Polish operation uses hot galvanization. Company head Piotr Kowal says the frame is "virtually eternal."
