1989 Land Rover Defender

This is a frame-off restoration by Arkonik, delivered to me July 2015. Hundreds, if not thousands, of man-hours went into the rebuild (not including the time I spent pondering every detail.). The folks at Arkonik are true craftsmen. Any part that isn't replaced is refurbished. This vehicle is a blast to drive and turns heads everywhere I go. Ebay won't accept my VIN # (vehicle was originally sold in Europe), but it is SALLDHMV8BA312886. Clear U.S./Louisiana title. Below is a list of what went into the rebuild:
