Arkonik show off their im­mac­u­lately re­stored De­fender, nick­named the Boul­der

Land Rover Monthly - - Contents -

Arkonik have been restor­ing and sourc­ing De­fend­ers to be­spoke spec­i­fi­ca­tions for cus­tomers all over the world since they were founded in 2007, and their lat­est project is the per­fect ex­am­ple of what they do best.

A De­fender 110 Sta­tion Wagon, the one-off Boul­der has a wealth of ex­te­rior en­hance­ments in­clud­ing a Front Run­ner roof rack with lad­der, KBX grille, A-bar and front light guards, as well as Fire & Ice side and NAS rear steps. Fin­ished in a dark Bonatti Grey with Java Black wheel arches, wing mir­rors and Kahn 1983 wheels, this truck cer­tainly looks more im­pos­ing than when it left the fac­tory.

The Som­er­set-based spe­cial­ists have worked their magic in­side too, re-up­hol­ster­ing the front seats in grey leather, while an Elite Loc-box sep­a­rates the two pre­mium high back rear seats. In ad­di­tion, four tip-up seats fit­ted in the load bay area add a dose of prac­ti­cal­ity. Other in­te­rior mod­i­fi­ca­tions in­clude a retro Evan­der 15 inch wooden steer­ing wheel, al­loy gear knobs and an Alpine sound sys­tem that in­cor­po­rates Ap­ple Carplay, bring­ing it up to date.

Pri­mar­ily con­cen­trat­ing on the North Amer­i­can mar­ket, Arkonik De­fend­ers are ex­clu­sively over 25 years old, in keep­ing with im­port reg­u­la­tions. This ve­hi­cle is be­ing shipped to a cus­tomer in the US state of Colorado.
