Your Best Defender

What we like to do

We at Defenderforyou.com are a diverse group of professionals of different capacity and shared objectives: to work well, in a professional and scrupulous manner; love of the Defender and of particular automobiles that have made in impact in the world marketplace; desire to manage passions as opposed to merchandise. These are but a few of our group’s shared objectives and goals. The idea was born when we realized that by uniting our efforts and talents, we would be able to satisfy many an American dream , namely of possessing a prestigious Defender.

The Defender and similar select automobiles are difficult to find, to import or to restore in the United States. Consequently, we seek them out, verify their particularity, provenance and documented history. When selected, we restore the vehicle with great care. The company has a team of experts, approximately ten individuals, who have been involved and dedicated to the care, reparations and restorations of these vehicles for over forty years. Everything is considered, from bodywork, chassis and motor to the interior details and electrical systems. Eventually the vehicle is fitted out with further embellishments be it for a captivating design or added functionality. At this point the product is tested for 500 km, photographed in medieval villages, of which there are many in Italy, and ultimately handed over to the American public.

 It was used for over forty years on a farm north of Rome in the Sabine hills, to transport the workers during the olive harvest. It was thereafter transformed into a pick up truck in 1985 and used ever since to transport the olives to the press, thus of great support in the world famous production of Sabine extra virgin olive oil DOP. Our Defenderforyou.com team found the vehicle passed down and put aside but in good condition. It was dismantled, repainted both the exterior and interior, provided with new covering for the posterior seats, and the brake system was adjusted. In its present state, the vehicle is a small jewel: fascinating, silent, romantic, antique and actual. In each vehicle acquired, one can find a small memento in the object or coin compartment that has been left by the particular dedicated team members who were involved in its restoration.
