“Our Land Rovers are built for those with a taste in collectible vehicles that are not only refined, but work well where mud is involved.” E.C.D. Automotive Design website
E.C.D Automotive Design of Malibu, California is responsible for the complete overhaul, restoration, and customization of the 1995 Range Rover (converting it into their Range Rover Classic Series Pinnacle bespoke vehicle) offered here in medium gray-and-black over tan-and-black. This Range Rover is a fully upgraded (including its General Motors LS3 6.2-liter V8 engine), one-of-one build. Commissioned by a current NFL player as his family vehicle, the RR has been re-imagined and re-executed at the very highest level of exclusivity and detail. Visit the E.C.D. Automotive Design website (link below) to appreciate the extent of their Land Rover expertise, the quality of their builds, and the satisfaction of their clients. (And be sure and visit the photo gallery here to review the amazingly comprehensive 10-step process E.C.D. employed to create this special vehicle.)

As stated in the E.C.D. website: “Over the years, we've championed ourselves on being recognized for building Land Rovers wholly customized down to the color of the stitch. Simply put, custom is what we do best. Combined with quality, luxury, and detailed craftsmanship, we deliver a classic icon that is not only one-of-a-kind but genuinely jaw-dropping. A rare beauty that can be driven with pride, with true purpose, and the heart to 'go anywhere and do anything.'”
This Range Rover was sold new in Seattle in 1995, retained by its first owner for more than 25 years, and re-titled several times in different states by the same individual. It was selected by the E.C.D. professionals just a few years ago based on its extensive dealer-service records and E.C.D.'s detailed assessment of its physical condition. It only then began the process of a complete tear-down to bare metal to ultimately be re-created as seen here. While the Carfax records show a “potential odometer rollback” in 2018, that was the point at which the RR was sourced by E.C.D. and its odometer was reset. This is effectively a “2020” vehicle showing a very conservative 12,695 miles on its odometer since beginning its E.C.D. journey.
Not surprisingly, the exterior of the Range Rover is without flaw. The gloss black paint on the roof and mirror caps is pristine, as is the medium-gray paint on the remainder of the body. All aspects of the finish show excellent gloss, even application, and attention to detail. There are no dings, dents, abrasion marks, or scrapes on the body. Panel fit is outstanding. Cabin glass and lighting lenses (including on the primary and secondary LED lighting up front) are clear and undamaged in any way. The black trim on the front and rear bumpers, front air dam, lower bodyside panels, window surrounds, and tailgate are likewise in excellent condition. Even the finish on the custom Banks® exhaust outlet is perfect. Proper “Range Rover” identification in black is present on the hood and tailgate; the iconic brand's logo badge is correctly located on the tailgate. Michelin® 255/70 Defender L/T tires are mounted on original, black 16-inch wheels with “Range Rover” center caps.
Inside, the quality of design and execution of the many customized touches is evident throughout. The careful selection of components and upgrades, together with their seamless integration, retained all the British charm of a classic long-wheelbase (LWB) Range Rover. Door trim features perfectly added tan leather and dark wood trim. Leather seat upholstery (on the front buckets and foldable rear bench seat) in tan adds a touch of flair with black piping. Black carpeting in beautifully maintained condition (with all-weather matting in place) covers the cabin floors including the rear cargo area. A stock Range Rover steering wheel (in black and tan) frames comprehensive driver instrumentation with an Alpine® mobile media digital interface in the center stack, above HVAC controls and an analog clock. The upper dash surfaces are of stitched black leather while the lower dash is trimmed in tan leather with a dark wood trim panel (matching the door trim) facing the front passenger. The black-and-tan theme continues with black leather on the upward-facing console surfaces (as well as on the shifter for the 6-speed automatic transmission), and tan leather on the side console panels. Every surface in the cabin interior—from switchgear, to leather, to carpeting—is extraordinarily well-maintained and free of even minor wear.
Under the hood, the powerplant is a GM® Performance Parts-sourced 6.2-liter, “Corvette” branded LS3 V8. Known for its power and reliability, the engine is fully supported by the network of Chevrolet dealers nationwide, and E.C.D. Automotive has extensive experience as to its proper installation. The Range Rover's entire engine bay is well organized with all components neatly organized and correctly installed. Viewed from below, the chassis is perfectly clean with all systems in place. The proper routing of the Corvette engine's exhaust demonstrates the skill involved here, as does the fitting of the custom drive shaft. There is no rust.
The vehicle identification tag, the E.C.D. build tag, and the GM Performance engine tag all remain in place. A full complement of owner literature from both Land Rover and E.C.D. is included in the sale,
While the more than 175 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this special-build Range Rover in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
One E.C.D. customer put it this way: “The build quality, the attention to detail, and modern updates all came together perfectly into a bespoke truck that is one of a kind. Bravo!!” We agree completely. This Range Rover is an absolutely exceptional blend of classic British adventure-motoring style inside and out, reliable GM power, E.C.D. expertise, and the highly respected Land Rover reputation in a one-of-a-kind execution.
