Clas­sic fet­tler needed

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

An ex­pand­ing garage in Sur­rey is on the look­out for a per­son with clas­sic car restora­tion skills to join its team.

Af­ter car­ry­ing out bodywork jobs on older cars for cus­tomers, Just the Ticket in New Malden has de­cided to en­hance its ser­vices to in­clude re­build­ing clas­sics.

Pro­pri­etor Paul Onslow-Cole, who is also the father of tour­ing car race driver Tom Onslow-Cole, be­lieves the job would suit a re­tired per­son with the re­quired ex­per­tise in clas­sics, who could choose their hours to suit. Bodywork abil­ity is the main re­quire­ment though, al­though me­chan­i­cal savvy would ob­vi­ously be a bonus.

Projects the garage is work­ing on in­clude a Mercedes-Benz 190SL, the first pro­duc­tion Bris­tol 411, which was owned by 007 sound­track com­poser John Barry, and an Austin A40 to race at Good­wood this year. ‘There’s a lot of va­ri­ety,’ says Paul. ‘It’s some­thing we feel we’re re­ally good at, so we’ve de­cided to do more of it.’

You could find your­self work­ing on John Barry’s Bris­tol.
