Chelsea Truck Company: Year in review

Staff Writer 3rd January 2018

2017 was a significant year for the Chelsea Truck Company, as the last Defender rolled off the Land Rover production line in January, marking the end of 67 years of production for the iconic 4x4.

As one of our most popular models, the Chelsea Wide Track Defender has taken centre stage at many of the events and exhibitions we’ve attended over the years and will remain an important part of our company’s history.

Whilst we are understandably sad to see it go, the good news is that we were able to source a significant number of the last production Defenders and still have a handful of dealer mileage vehicles available, both in the 90 and 110 variant.

As expected, these are now rocketing in value and demand is high. If you would like the opportunity to purchase one of the last Chelsea Truck Company Defenders we would recommend getting in touch soon.

If you’re already a Defender owner, you will of course still be able to benefit from our extensive range of interior and exterior components and purpose designed wheels, as well as the option of booking your vehicle into our workshop for a full Chelsea Wide Track conversion.

2017 also saw numerous versions of the Black Hawk Edition Jeep Wrangler Black Hawk edition snapped up by our discerning clientelle.

As a personal project headed by Design Director Afzal Kahn, the painstaking attention to detail and passion for perfection is clear to see in the finished product.

With every component tailor-made and precisely engineered, the build quality is comparable to that of a fully coachbuilt vehicle. The result is a unique vehicle in a league of its own, and unlike anything on the market today.

This is reflected in the recent independent assessment of the Black Hawk’s value by trade price specialists CAP, who awarded it a 35% higher residual value than the standard Jeep Wrangler model.

We’ve also showcased the Chelsea Truck Company Mercedes-Benz G Class G63 AMG Hammer Edition - the SUV of choice for customers who are looking for a fashionable vehicle like no other.

Synonymous with excellence, fashion and nonchalance, the latest addition to the Chelsea Truck Company range is a world away from the motonous production methods often used by modern manufacturers.

The level of personalisation is a joy to behold, a pair of front and rear bumpers work in unison with extended front and rear fenders that feature utilitarian exposed bolt apertures and vents.

As we enter 2018, we are looking forward to another year of innovation, creativity and inspiration. We would like to wish all our customers, friends and supporters a happy and prosperous New Year.
