Happy New Year

We hope that everyone had a terrific holiday season and new year. It’s been a while since we posted but were back and ready to share what we’ve been up to lately. One of our customers had us detail the engine compartment on their rover. It looks pretty incredible. We also are continuing the restoration process on the 1963 Safari Wagon. These are just a couple of the vehicles we have currently in the works. Some of the new years resolutions we have around here are to blog more often and also expand into new kinds of content such as video. Heres to a great start to 2013.

Restoration Photos

Today we decided to take some new photos of a few restored vehicles together. We also took some close up shots of some of the restored interior components as well as the new Capstan Winch on the 1963 Safari Station Wagon. If you have any questions about our business or the restoration process feel to email us at marketing@darebritannia.com

1964 Series IIa Trailer

In addition to restoring the vehicle a trailer was also requested by our customer. Yesterday we road tested the two of them together.

The Sanding Continues

I’m giving a quick update on the 63 Safari Wagon. Today the sanding of the body continues as we head towards returning this vehicle to its former glory. Soon I will be able to post pictures of a new painted body. Stay tuned.

Body Work

The body restoration for the 1963 Safari Wagon has begun. Here are a few pictures of the progress being made as you read this.

1963 Safari Station Wagon

We have acquired this ten-passenger vehicle which was featured in the film, “All in the Army” starring Robin Williams. As far as internals, it has gone through an extensive mechanical restoration, including a rebuild of the hydraulic and exhaust systems with all new components, a fuel tank restoration, recent carburetor, fuel pump, dynamo distributer, coil, ect… Here are a few pictures of it before the body restoration began.
