The Range Rover Classic is a beautiful, iconic luxury SUV. Its clean lines and timeless beauty is something you simply just don’t see much anymore in modern SUVs. If you’re lucky enough to get your hands on one, you’re probably interested in restoring your Range Rover Classic or in the very least, upgrading some of the parts whether for performance or comfort. There are many upgrades for a restored Range Rover Classic to consider when restoring your British classic, some of which to consider would be drivetrain, interior, paint, and more.
Engine & Drivetrain
E.C.D. Automotive Design offers a variety of engine upgrades for a restored Range Rover Classic. Our most popular engine swap for the Range Rover Classic is currently the 6.2L Chevy LS3 V8-engine that produces 430-hp, 565-hp, or 600-hp. The LS3 is a great engine upgrade for your custom Range Rover Classic as it offers maximum reliability, ease of maintenance, and peace of mind with a 2-year/50,000 mile warranty from GM.
We recently introduced the addition of a new engine offering — the GM 6.2L supercharged LT4 V8 engine. It’s a direct-injection small-block V8 engine that produces 640-horsepower and 630 lb-ft of torque at 6600 RPMs. It is the most powerful engine now offered by E.C.D.The LT4 features an Eaton TVS supercharger capable of producing more than 9 PSI of boost, a cast-aluminum block, forged aluminum pistons, and a forged-steel crankshaft.
Additional options for an engine swap in your restored Range Rover Classic include a 5.3L Chevy LC9 V8-engine with 320-hp; a Cummins Diesel 4-cylinder turbo engine with 160-hp; and the factory Rover V8-engine with 190-hp.
Interior restoration for your restored Range Rover Classic is the next most popular upgrade. At E.C.D., we provide the ability to completely design your dream interior from choosing your seat materials, stitch patterns, colors, and more. A restored interior can breathe new life into your restored Range Rover Classic whether you choose a simplistic style or prefer having the newest modern technology. We offer three interior styles for your custom Range Rover Classic, all of which can be fitted and designed to your exact specifications. Regardless of which style you choose, you can also select custom dashboards for the Range Rover Classic.
Seat choice is a major element of interior styling. While you may choose to keep the original Puma seats, E.C.D. also offers custom seat upgrades for the Range Rover Classic as well. Popular options for custom seats include Corbeau Trailcat or RRS seats, both of which offer excellent comfort with differing sporty looks. Recaro seats for your Custom Range Rover Classic are ideal for maximum comfort. Orthoped’s are one of our most popular seat choices.
Paint is one of the most significant customizations that an owner makes to any vehicle they get. E.C.D. offers many different paint colors and finishes. Different finishes include monochromatic, two-tone, full gloss, eggshell, and autobiography style exterior paint. The number of colors and color combinations for new paint on your custom Range Rover Classic are infinite; if you can think of it, it will be done.
