eBay RESTORATION LIVE is returning to Silverstone as the Classic’s official parts and accessories partner.
Racing driver and car restorer Fergus Walkinshaw will lead a team of top mechanics completely restore a classic car in front of festival-goers, using parts and accessories from eBay. This year the team take on a 1984 Ford Capri.
Starting on Friday, they will race against the clock and – if all goes to plan – show off the 33-year-old, 2.8 Injection Capri on stage with Mike Brewer on Sunday. The finished car will then be sold on ebay.co.uk, with all proceeds going to the event’s charity partner, Prostate Cancer UK.
Murray Lambell, eBay’s director of retail car parts & accessories, said, “Silverstone Classic attracts everyone from the highly experienced restorer right through to people who simply love their car – just like eBay does – so it’s a great event for us to be part of.
“With over 8 million live listings for car parts and accessories available to buy at any one time on ebay.co.uk, eBay is the essential destination for all car owners, whether they are looking for an everyday replacement part or a rare component in a restoration.”
