We are currently working to bring this 1937 Mercedes-Benz 230 Pullman back to road-worthy condition. Overall, the car is in good condition. Although it runs and drives it needs a fair amount of work to get it back on the road. We’ve started with some suspension repairs this week and we’ve removed the cylinder head and fuel pump and fuel tank for reconditioning.
This Lotus Esprit had sat in a garage for years before its current owner rescued it. The car had seized rear brakes and a few other small issues but was overall very good. With the rear brakes sorted and the engine up and running the car is now back on the road.
Ian Burford’s Coventry Climax powered TVR Grantura has gone into the body shop for the restoration of its fibreglass body. It has decades worth of cracks, filler and paint layers so we are taking it right back to the original fibreglass to be repaired, prepped and repainted ready for the 2019 race season. The car is a rare and very early TVR with a 1097cc Coventry Climax FWA engine and drum brakes all round.
