Classic Sports Car
Carrozzeria Franco: 0039 49 623151; carrfranco.it
How long have you been in business? I started this job 20 years ago, but the body shop has a much longer history – my father opened it more than 40 years ago.
What’s your specialism? We restore, buy and sell mainly English classic cars from the 1950s and ’60s, in particular the Jaguar E-type.
What’s your daily driver? A Jaguar XJ-S 3.6 manual that I bought from its first owner. I have an invoice for every bit of work carried out on it.
What’s your dream classic? An AC Ace Bristol, in which I would like to compete on the Mille Miglia.
What’s your favourite event? Choosing between the Le Mans Classic, Spa-classic, Goodwood and Techno-classica Essen is tough.
