The Wheeler Dealers are back as experienced car dealer, Mike Brewer, and multi-talented mechanic, Edd China, return with the 13th series and eight more classic cars with a mix of British, European and American marques.
Mike and Edd have again set up their workshop in Surf City USA, Huntington Beach, Southern California. Mike navigates the surrounding states in search of cars with money-making potential, bringing them back to Edd and the team for him to work their mechanical magic to restore the cars into profit making machines.
In the new series, the boys get eco-friendly with the original ‘Econobox’, a 1977 Honda CVCC; rescue a neglected and extremely rusty 1965 Land Rover Series 2a; get aircooled California style in a 60s Corvair, and put the zip back into the performance of an 80s icon, the 1988 Ford Mustang 5.0.
In a quick chat with Mike at the Greystone Concours where Mike was signing his new book he said: “After restoring over 100 cars, me and Edd are still finding fantastic classics to restore and if there was a theme for this series, it would be ‘having fun.’ With cars from the 1960s, 70s and 80s, Edd will be getting more involved in choosing the type of car we are looking for each week while I’ll be taking my turn getting my hands dirty in the workshop.”
In what Mike describes his favorite part of the process before handing over the keys it is when the repairs are complete and the duo hit the open road. This is when the transformation if complete and Mike and Edd are able to test the restored ride before Mike tries to sell it for the highest profit possible.
The brand new season of Wheeler Dealers will have its world premiere in the UK in May and followed up in the US in June.
