Wilmington, NC, (June 2020) - OSPREY CUSTOM CARS, has a well-deserved reputation for their exceptional custom-built classic Defenders, Broncos, and old FJ restomods. They also have a Manufacturer's Certificate of Origin (MCO) to build, from the ground up, replicated models of older model Land Rovers. OSPREY'S latest build ia a brand new replicate of a gorgeous 1993 Fuji White Land Rover Defender 110. Featuring a 6.2 LS Performance V8 w/ approximately 525HP and / 486ft-pounds torque with a 6l80e transmission, this old/new truck can really move and carries an extraordinary list of customized features.

Osprey is a family business and understands the importance of building something that stands the test of time, as many of their clients have owned cars for generations and hope to pass their vehicles onto future generations. Their handiwork can be seen from the hobbyists' garage to the showroom of SEMA in Las Vegas. Osprey has seen a number of interesting requests, and prides themselves on the notion that, 'if you dream it, we can build it!' They've installed antique flooring, custom engraved exteriors and even custom paint jobs to match houses or other cars.

Osprey's latest, a 1993 Fuji White Defender 110 replicate is one of their more recent custom builds. This handsome vehicle retains the timelessness of the original model combined with modern performance, speed, and convenience. "We've built this truck into something very special", says Aaron Richardet, owner and founder of Osprey Custom Cars. "Every component is upgraded and customized to create a luxurious, comfortable vehicle that is equally at home at the mall or in the woods.
