ECD Automotive Design

Auto tuning company ECD Automotive Design (formerly East Coast Defenders)' facility is over 30.000 square feet and is growing with over 50 full-time employees building award-winning specialty vehicles. The founders grew up in England, the Midlands, about 60 miles from the famous Lode Lane factory where the Land Rover Defender was made. They were surrounded by these original vehicles from an early age and mostly drove around their friends' farms, sometimes with hay bales, the family dog ​​or the occasional farm animal. The founders, Tom, Elliot, Scott, quickly became interested in vehicles, especially classic English ones. Elliot's first car was a 1987 Austin Mini. Tom's is a '67 MGB Roadster. When Tom and his wife Emily moved to the US in 2012, they decided to open a dealership and import some of the vehicles they had been so passionate about over the years. In 2013 ECD Automotive Design opened its dealership / showroom for the first vehicles and some trucks. Tom, his brother Elliot and the first clerk, Brandon, worked 18 hour days, pulling these Land Rover Defender and rebuild them according to customer requirements. There is more about the company
