‘Not un­usual to make a late car look ear­lier’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Living With Classics - DA­MON OORLOFF KINGS­LEY CARS

‘Gen­er­ally these cars are not used for off-road­ing any more so the fo­cus is on mak­ing them more us­able on the road. Our cus­tomers want turn-key re­li­a­bil­ity, bet­ter fuel econ­omy, more pre­cise han­dling and fea­tures such as im­proved hi-fi, cen­tral lock­ing, air con­di­tion­ing and bet­ter se­cu­rity. It’s not un­usual to take a late two-door car and make it look like a much ear­lier car; the four-door mod­els may have bet­ter prac­ti­cal­ity but they don’t have the same charm or col­lectabil­ity.’ www.kings­l­ey­cars.co.uk
