King of the car programme, Mike Brewer is building his dream car and filming progress as a spin off of his popular TV show Wheeler Dealers.   Making his dream come true is Shipley based race car builder Andy Harrison of Acespeed Historic Motorsport.

When it came to rebuilding the car the first choice was Andy Harrison and his team at Acespeed Historic Motorsport.  Andy is one of the country’s top mini racers and his business specialise in building pre 1968 mini’s to FIA regulations.   His cars can be seen racing at all the top historic events including Goodwood.

Andy took delivery of the car at the Lancaster Classic car show this weekend where Mike Brewer described him as one of the best Mini builders in the country.  It is now being stored in a secret location awaiting assessment and planning for the new build.

Said Andy

The car is in quite good shape and has all the important Cooper S parts present.  The body shell is going to be replaced with a heritage shell which will make the build quicker.  This is the first time that we have worked with a camera crew during the build of a car and I am sure it will be quite challenging.   However, it will be a great experience and I am sure that working with Mike will be a lot of fun.
