The Heritage Customs Vintage is based on the world’s most iconic 4×4. Each Vintage is built by hand and features beautiful paints, milled jewellery parts and handcrafted interiors.
Heritage Customs, studio for carchitecture transformed the base car from 2008 into an unique motorcar:
Car designer and co-founder of Heritage Customs Niels van Roij:
“This likeable Dutch Vintage commission features a rich, soft green metallic paint. It feels right at home next to the Heather flowers in the forest as well as on the pebble stones next to the patron’s striking monumental villa. For this Heritage Customs Vintage we selected our bespoke milled aluminium side- and bonnet vents whilst non-automotive tan Nubuck leather was applied to trim the seats, dashboard as well as rear benches.
We also designed a teak wooden cargo floor with white rubber inlays, integrated a Marshall speaker into the cubby box and hand stitched a tan canvas hood complementing the leather interior. A wooden steering wheel replaces the plastic standard unit, whilst the centre stack has been tastefully colour-coded to the body and has metal switchgear applied to its facia.”
Heritage Customs founder Jan-Pieter Kroezen:
“This sympathetic bespoke Heritage Customs Vintage is a friendly yet self-assured design statement with distinctive aluminium details and colour coded extra wide steel wheels. A selection of Heritage Customs-specific wheels are available for the Vintage.
Furthermore our customer selected a simple and clean front bumper design from our range of custom made bumpers and side steps. Full LED lights all-around complement the package, without harming the classical looks: they slightly modernise the car’s character and simultaneously offer an increased light output.”
