Mercedes Benz Restoration & Parts
This site is for Hjeltness Restorations. Jerry Hjeltness is a highly respected classic auto restorer. I have known Jerry for many years and supplied many luggage sets for automobiles that he has restored. He is an expert in the correct restoration of the famous Gullwings.
Jim Friswold is a supplier of hard to find original and reproduction parts for vintage Mercedes, specializing in 500K and 540K automobiles as well as other vintage models. He is also a world-class restorer of these great cars with many 500's and 540's to his credit.
With several hundred members, the Gullwing Group has brought together owners and enthusiasts for these wonderful cars. Their combined knowledge and experience with the cars is a great resource for anyone interested in owning and caring for one. I have been priveleged to supply my luggage to many group members and have found them a delight to work with.
This is a good site for information regarding Mercedes Benz restoration projects.
I was privileged to make a set of luggage for the BASF Gullwing restoration project on the Dream Car Garage TV show.
