create your own legacy


The journey starts here! Your Heritage Customs Valiance Convertible is available in individually tailored and carefully curated colour schemes, we have made 3 as a source of inspiration for designing yours, inspired by beautiful beaches and the Land Rover brand heritage: Valiance Convertible Côte d’Azur, Valiance Convertible Solihull Sand and last but not least Valiance Convertible Kokkini Paralia.

The Valiance Convertible is coachbuilt by craftspeople and based on the Land Rover Defender. Each of the first generation Convertible conversions will feature a semi-electric roof, Magic Metal packs for interior and exterior and handmade enamel Heritage Customs logo’s on side and back


Looking back and thinking of the iconic classic Defender, you would probably picture a convertible instantly. That charming soft top, still boasting the rough looks and featuring all capabilities of a true Land Rover 4x4, is the fundament of the Valiance Convertible.

Open air driving takes on a new persona in this one of five bespoke Convertible. As well as the bold silhouette you’ve come to expect, the Heritage Customs Valiance Convertible roof takes craftmanship one step further. Exclusive to this vehicle is the hand-stitched hood and tonneau cover.

The first edition coachbuilt Convertibles will be limited to 5 unique Defenders and will be handmade in 2022. On the next pages you will find the three carefully curated concepts from which you can draw inspiration to design yours. We’ll also outline how you can reserve your very own Valiance Convertible
