ECD Auto Design’s Newest Restored Defender 110 Soft Top Set to Take on Colorado Mountains


Worldwide restomod company reveals Project Kalorado coated in Brooklands Green and packed with power

KISSIMMEE, Fla., Jan. 25, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — ECD Auto Design (NASDAQ: ECDA), the world’s largest Land Rover and Jaguar restoration company known for its custom luxury builds, including bespoke Defenders, Range Rovers and E-Types, today reveals Project Kalorado – the perfect soft-top Defender 110 hand crafted for its new home in the Colorado mountains.

The new one-of-a-kind Project Kalorado Classic Defender 110, by ECD Auto Design, boasting a powerful GM 6.2 L V8 engine is ready to take on any adventure.

“Our team here at ECD takes a 25-year-old Defender, and restores it to include all the bells and whistles our clients can think of,” said CEO of ECD Auto Design Scott Wallace. “If our clients can dream it, we can do it – from the exact shade of paint to the most modern technology upgrades. It’s what makes us who we are and it is part of the heart of our business.”

Sitting underneath the hood of Project Kalorado is a brand-new 50 state compliant, GM 6.2L V8 engine with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The restored defender is propped on 16-inch Wolf wheels and BF Goodrich All Terrain tires made to take on the incline and curves of Colorado’s mountainous terrain. Project Kalorado also includes custom finishes such as the heritage style grille, classic bumper, soft-top multi-point roll cage, rear bumper tow package and mud-flaps.

Fully glossed in a Brooklands Green body exterior and topped with light tan canvas, Project Kalorado is perfect for taking the crew from the slopes to Après ski. The spacious truck and inward facing jump seats leave plenty of room to pack up the paddleboards in the summer and skis in the winter. With enough room for eight, the D110 includes heated Puma Classic seats and a single vertical diamond hand stitched pattern in Hazelnut leather to complement the soft top. Modern touches to Project Kalorado’s list of customizations include JLAudio speakers and subwoofers, CarPlay, SiriusXM, Bluetooth and a backup camera and sensor.
