Chelsea Truck’s Defender Homage 2 Puts On A Retro Face And Wide Body Kit

Chelsea Truck Company keeps churning out special editions of the Land Rover Defender, with the latest adopting a bright yellow paint job and a very distinctive face.

It’s called the Homage II Edition, and unlike most Defenders that come out of Chelsea Truck Company, this one was created to evoke the front-end styling of the older Series 2 version.

Series 2 Defenders stand out by their headlights being mounted on the front grille, so the tuner redesigned the lighting setup to make the Homage II look like a Series 2 and added a new front grille.

The rest of the body is also modified, featuring an 8-inch (203 mm) longer wheelbase, mainly thanks to the addition of an extra 7.9 inches (200 mm) of bodywork just ahead of the windscreen, as well as the company’s wide bodykit and an exterior roll cage finished in black.

Thankfully, the longer wheelbase doesn’t reach the extreme levels of previous “Longnose” conversions performed by sister company Kahn Design, which made the Defender look simply weird and unbalanced.

The interior is completely overhauled with leather upholstery covering everything from the seats to the rooflining, the new custom center console, the dashboard, the door cards and even the sun visors.

Chelsea Truck didn’t mention any powertrain upgrades, which in all likelihood means that the Defender Homage II is still powered by the 122hp 2.2-liter TDCi diesel engine.

    Great looker. The lighting position is not good, but since it’s yellow, you know, it will be seen! XD

    Good looking vehicle.

    Question. Tuner? Seems to mean so many things. A tuner in my eyes is someone who modifies the engine, performance. Now they may be on certain vehicles but to call out “tuner” when this vehicle is not “tuned” rubs me the wrong way.

    No doubt Chelsea puts out great vehicles, just think this “tuner” stuff has gone a bit too far.

    Maybe mod shop, speed shop, modifier, off-road shop, etc….

    A tuner is, IMO, a shop with credibility that modifies engines et al to increase performance on or off-road.
