Project Sterling

D90 Puma

Introducing Project Sterling; Complete Frame-Off restoration on a New Galvanized Chassis, powered by the famous 5 Cylinder Land Rover TD5 Turbo Diesel Engine, arguably the best engine Land Rover ever made for the Defender.

This is matched with a Strong 5 Speed R380 Land Rover Gearbox.

We have created an excellent investment and collectability opportunity, unlike the more common Chevy LS conversion.

All Drive-Train, Differentials and Suspension was overhauled by Debsch Motors.

This beautiful Defender was finished-off in Land Rover Corris Gray Color with Genuine LR Signature Interior and Fully Functional TD5 Dashboard and console. The car is ready to be driven or customized further.

See bottom of page for full specs.

Financing is Available
