PHOTO CALL FOR NEW CLASSIC CAR TV SHOW

Hi All,
There's a new Classic Car TV programme being made featuring a Type 3 Fastback which has been worked over and mildly customised. If you can help with a venue or tidy Type 3 to help with the reveal, that would be great.

This is what Will says:- " I work for a Television company and we make a series ‘Salvage Hunters – Classic Cars’. For one of our episodes we have bought and restored a 1971 Type 3 Fastback. Although it was a good car to start with (RHD and original) it did have some elements of body work to look at. This resulted in a colour change to Birch green and following some alterations to the front bumper the wings, valence have been altered, and front number plate deleted.

We have also had some tyres striped by ‘Mr Whitewalls’ and put them on (unfortunately repro) sprintstar wheels. The car has also been lowered slightly and all seals, carpets, interior parts repaired or replaced. The result is a great looking car and we are looking for some reveal options – either great locations or with a number of other similar cars.

Looking on your website I am sure that your members are spread around the country but it would be great to find out if anyone was interested in taking part in half a days filming with their cars. We could look at locations that may be best for the majority if there was any interest.

With other vehicles we have filmed people looking around the car and giving their opinion (positive or negative) and ideally (although rarely possible) find someone who would like to buy the car or know someone who might be interested.

Below are some links to previous series to give some idea of an episode.

SHCC-EP 3 https://vimeo.com/265198712/6412ba9ddb

We are looking to film this ‘reveal’ either 22nd / 23rd November. We are able to pay petrol and expenses as well as lunch. Ideally we would attract around 6-10 cars.

If there is anything you can do to enquire on our behalf that would be great, if you need any more information please do get back in touch.

Many thanks,

Will. "
