The place was abuzz with excitement. How could it not be? At the Overland Edition of the Gears on the Piers hosted at the Manhattan Classic Car Club (CCC), the place was full of iconic overland trucks, all anchored by four of Legacy Overland’s own arresting 4x4 showpieces.
Legacy Overland restores and rebuilds classic off road vehicles such as Toyota Land Cruisers, Range Rovers, and Land Rover Series & Defenders. Man Made DIY sat down with founder Robert Madeira and team to find out more about who they are, and what it takes to preserve such iconic machines while maintaining functionality for the practical uses for which they were intended.
A cornerstone of the off-roading spirit is to help overcome obstacles and give back to the community. In a serious commitment to make the world a better place for everyone, Legacy Overland has come up with a unique initiative. Along with Bonhams, we’ve prepared a charitable vacation package, which you can bid on at the Greenwich Concours d’Elegance auction.
It's been quite a journey since we started working on our beloved 1982 Toyota Land Cruiser BJ40. From its two-decade life as an off-roader in family trips to the months it spent in our garage, under the attentive and meticulous care of our experienced mechanics and upholsterers, this iconic 4x4 has emerged from an in-depth frame-off restauration to become a media star.
