Mutual Chelsea Truck Company Respect
12th Apr 2016
However, for renowned Defender restorer Russell Sawwell and Chelsea Truck Company Jeep Wrangler owner, Stephen Hemming, there is only room for mutual respect.
Stephen gushes about Russell’s restoration work, citing various examples of stunning military jeeps that have been refurbished in a splendid manner.
Russell’s work has garnered international acclaim, having worked on many Jeep models from as far afield as America.
“I love what Russell does,” says Stephen. “He has the best collection of military Jeeps including pick up and ex Navy models. He has actually restored original U.S Military models so he respects the brand.
“I have seen him, first-hand, restore some vehicles that no one else could turn their hand to, and he has promptly turned them into works of art.”
Imbued with a no-nonsense charisma along with a retro persona, the more pressing question is, which of the two is better in terms of driving comfort, ergonomics, off-road capability, on-road ride and comfort?
The bottom line is that the Chelsea Truck Company Jeep Wrangler CJ300 is aimed towards the fashionista of today, someone who likes to look good in the most exclusive of city’s.
The superior design package includes a slim line four slot grille with industrial mesh, matching shadow chrome headlights, a complete colour change, new fuel filler cap and side mirrors.
A new set of Kahn wheels with all terrain tyres are suitable for light off-roading, whilst painted brake calipers and a stainless steel quad exhaust system make the CJ300 really stand out.
Take a look at the gallery to view some of the vehicles Russell is working on. Another update will be posted in the coming weeks.
