Restored and updated with modern features, this classic vehicle has been elevated for contemporary adventures. Codenamed “Project Hitchcock”, this stunning build seamlessly fuses classic elegance with modern power.

The vehicle now boasts a robust 300 TDI engine and precise R380 gearbox, delivering enhanced reliability and unparalleled performance. Through meticulous mechanical rebuilds, galvanization, and thoughtful interior touches, this classic vehicle has been revitalized for a new era of adventure.

Project Hitchcock features galvanized chassis and body components to prevent corrosion and ensure longevity. The interior showcases leather seats with Harris Tweed inserts, exuding classic British sophistication. A wooden-rimmed steering wheel with a custom badge pays homage to the vehicle’s storied history.
