Austin Champ

Vehicle Ref 169

Front side view of Austin Champ Jeep in Army Khaki Colour

About this vehicle:

The Champ is one of only around 300 left on the road in the UK, it was designed as the British answer to the US Jeep after World War II. Known for being over engineered and expensive to produce it has a 2.8 litre Rolls-Royce designed B40 four cylinder engine. Despite the basic look it has a ride quality to rival most modern cars and was years ahead of its time in many respects.  

It has a simple fold up roof but no side cover which means the side remains open when driving, although if the weather is fine the roof can be fully down to appreciate the full open effect. 

The Austin Champ can take two passengers in the back and one in the front. The driver can wear appropriate period ceremonial or combat uniform, or civilian clothes if preferred, simply let us know your preference at the time of booking.  An unusual and fun way to travel, perhaps for the Groom and Best Man.

Didier's communication was great and we had a smooth ride in the white laudelette taxi on the day of our wedding! We were blessed with good weather so able to have the roof down!

The driver was lovely and friendly and there was a bag with water/tissues and a mirror provided if needed!

Premier Carriage were fantastic, the booking was straightforward and the team were very accommodating when it came to making amendments. The car looked fantastic, it was very clean and well kept inside and out. The chauffeur was very friendly and was happy to let us take loads of photos with the car.

We would happily recommend Premier Carriage to anyone looking for a car for their wedding day.

I'm so happy with Simon and his amazing camper "Betty" she is really beautiful photos don't do her justice. Simon, from the moment he got there, was nothing but friendly and professional. He saw my son was having a little bit of a meltdown and helped calm things down (nearly 2 years old, missed his nap and was starting to get very restless) which helped me out not having to stress and worry.

I loved every second of the drive. My only complaint is my venue was to close so I didn't get to stay in Betty longer 😂


Everyone loved the photo booth In the evening and was a huge hit thank you so much

We recently had the pleasure of using Adrian’s Aston Martin for our wedding. It was an outstanding experience from start to finish.  The booking process was very smooth with Adrian responding promptly to any questions.

On the big day, the car arrived early, was immaculately clean, and beautifully decorated.  Adrian helped keep me calm on the way to the church, and the ride was smooth and enjoyable - the best start to the wedding. 

I highly recommend Adrian for anyone seeking a reliable and exceptional wedding car service.  He truly helped make our wedding day unforgettable. Harry & Emily.

Adrian was a star! Arriving with plenty of time to spare, I had no worries about getting to my wedding ceremony on time and in style!! On the journey to the ceremony Adrian was lovely company for my dad and I (easing the butterflies!) and for my Husband it was really a dream come true for us to be whisked away from our ceremony as newlyweds in such a stunning and elegant car (very well kept and I fitted-in well with my dress despite the long train!) It was exactly what we had been specifically looking for, and we couldn't be happier - both with the car and Adrian's wonderful service. A very special addition to treat yourself to for your wedding.
