HISTORIC car owners can pick the brains of a team of hugely talented and highly experienced craftsmen when Mike Williams Restorations holds its first-ever open day at its workshops in Bredgar, Kent, on Saturday, October 12.
Between them, the members of Mike Williams’ team have more than a century of experience in restoring vintage and collectable cars and preparing historic race cars for competition.
And the day will benefit more than the visitors – tea, coffee and biscuits will be on sale to raise funds for the automotive industry charity BEN.
There will be a number of interesting vehicles on show, including an Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A, an Amilcar C6, a Jaguar XK120 drophead and a Triumph TR4 rally car, and Mike and the team can also take their visitors through photographic records of previous projects they have undertaken.
The list of past restoration projects features a huge range of ‘patients’, including Lagondas, an Invicta, XK and SS Jaguars, an 1898 Locomobile, HWM sports racing cars and various single-seater HGPCA cars.
“Our craftsmen will be delighted to provide expert advice on everything from chassis renovation or fabrication, suspension set-up, engine rebuilding, reconditioning and blueprinting and gearbox through to re-trimming, panel beating, spraying and re-wiring,” said Mike Williams.
The Mike Williams Restorations open day will run from 10am to 4pm on October 12. In order to ensure a plentiful supply of biscuits, Mike asks that all visitors register their interest in advance by calling 01795 830288 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before midday on Friday, October 11.
