Project Zermatt

D90 Td5 RHD Automatic


Introducing Project Zermatt. Complete Frame-Off restoration on a Genuine Land Rover Chassis, powered by the famous powerful and comfortable 5 Cylinder Land Rover Td5 Turbo Diesel Engine, arguably the best engine Land Rover ever made for the Defender, matched with brand new Ashcroft Land Rover Automatic Transmision. This unit was built with full investment opportunity and collectability in mind, unlike Chevy LS Conversion that you more commonly see online in Defenders.

All-Drivetrain, Engine, Differentials and Suspension was rebuilt and overhauled by Debsch Motors, one of the most reputable Defender Specialist in Texas, USA.

Built by Land Rover Factory in Soliohull, West Midland England.

This beautiful Defender was finished off in Zermatt Silver, followed by Full Custom Black Nappa Vally Leather Interior and Fully Functional Td5 Dashboard and Console. Project Zermatt took about 2000+ Hours and over 2 years to build.
