1985 Land Rover Defender looks better than new in this ‘chameleon’ paint​

Netherlands-based car restorer Heritage Customs has finished restoring a rather world-weary Land Rover Defender 90, which wound up with a V8, a metal body kit and a unique Moon Dust Metallic finish.

We are tempted to call the exterior the main highlight of the entire project because of how well it looks on an elderly SUV. The near-black paint changes color to copper, bronze or brass depending on the viewing angle.

Interestingly enough, the customer apparently decided to leave all the dents and scratches on the 36-year-old car intact – probably to highlight its long years of service. We applaud the decision, because the assorted little defects look charming under the chameleon paintjob and next to the modern aluminum bumper, headlight bezels and running boards. Custom steel wheels looks simple, stylish and fitting.

The interior is awash with leather and Alcantara, while the trunk area is lined with wood. Modern niceties on board include a sports steering wheel, an audio system with a subwoofer, and a long gear shifter.

Powering the restomod from the Netherlands is a V8 of unspecified parameters. Prices remain likewise unknown
