During the show, Philip will unearth the story of six cars that have played an important part in the UK’s social history, the cars that were built in Britain, were bold in design, caused a stir on the silver screen and flew the flag for great British manufacturing across the world. He is determined to hunt down and save the six iconic and abandoned motors he feels tells the story of post war Britain.
Cars such as the Ford Escort Mexico, MGTC, Mini Cooper MK1, Triumph Stag and the DeLorean. Under Phil’s guidance, the internationally renowned restorer Ant Anstead will be tasked with the challenging job of rebuilding of them and bringing them back to their former glory. While Ant works hard with the spanners breathing life into old bangers Phil will explore the people, passion and social history stories behind each of the marquees, learning what makes each car so unique.
