New arrivals at Vintage Automobilia

We were recently contacted by a client looking to sell their collecton of motoring memorabilia in order to move in a new direction. We were able to purchase a large amount of items which we are now in the process of sorting and is all due to be uploaded to the website for sale shortly. Tins, pourers, signs and globes, from great budget friendly shelf fillers to real gems, something for everyone. It’s not everyday that we get to find great pieces in one place and even buy back some familiar old friends! Attached is a small selection of the purchased oil pourers for you to perouse.

Vintage Automobilia at Goodwood Revival

We were honoured to be able to supply a pair of glass globes to Themed Garages for the Goodwood Revival 2018. A last minute set change required two pumps to be re-liveried and globes sourced. These glass reproduction globes had previous names removed, were delivered and then painted by on site sign writers just 48 hours before the gates opened!

They looks stunning. It was a pleasure for us to be of assistance. As always a fantastic weekend and we look forward to next years event.

New stock!

After a hectic few months with our move we are slowly getting back into the swing of things!

We have some fantastic new stock coming in at the moment, some super rare pieces and several project pumps, all has been sourced from individual collectors looking to downsize after 50+ years of collecting.

Items will be added shortly to the website. We are also scaling back our own personal collection with lots of collectable tins now available.

Keep checking back for updates to the stock pages to see whats new!

Gilbarco Gulf Pump

We have just started a restoration for a client on a Gilbarco salesmaker pump, to be finished in the iconic Gulf blue/orange racing colours. Pictures due soon!

Conde Nast Traveller Photoshoot

We recently supplied some items to Conde Nast for a photoshoot of high end watches and can now share the pictures with you. Including makes such as Rolex, Hublot and Breitling all with a motoring inspired theme. The article was a supplement to the Traveller magazine now out in print.

Great to see some of our humble collectable tins alongside some of the greatest watch brands around.

We are able to supply similar items for photoshoots, as film/TV props or display purposes. Please feel free to contact us for more details.

John Bull Tyres Poster Finds New Home.

As Seen On TV!

Purchased by ‘Salvage Hunters’ host Drew Pritchard at a museum in Cornwall (Series 9 Episode 15) we fell in love with this original framed poster the moment we saw it, a rare piece of advertising we stumbled across it for sale online after the show had aired, recognised the piece and just had to have it.

She now has a new home in our own collection and will shortly be undergoing some restoration to bring her back to former glory.

Garage display for The Royal Automobile Club

We are delighted to be able to reveal a project we have just completed for The Royal Automobile Club.

The newly restored Motor House at the Woodcote Park estate has recently opened to club members and we had the great privilege of working with the club to put together a 1950’s garage scene, dressing one end of the stunning 18th century barn with period items to form a backdrop for the beautiful cars on display.

A project we have thoroughly enjoyed working on.
