1958 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder re-creation

An American client has commissioned us to build him a flawless re-creation of a 1958 Ferrari 250 GT California Spyder. It is all true Ferrari underpinnings (Ferrari chassis 9219 GTC) and driveline with a fully rebuilt and detailed twelve cylinder under the hood. It is not to be a garage queen and will be used by our client as an enjoyable and reliable cruiser.

Restoration Garage - Season 4

David Grainger - Restoration Garage

Eccentric entrepreneur David Grainger might like to fly planes, ride horses and race boats but his true love has led him to one career and there is nothing blue-collar about it. At The Guild of Automotive Restorers, David Grainger and his team save the world's rarest classic vehicles. From re-building a one-of-a-kind turn of the century French De Dion, to recreating the multi million dollar Bugatti Aerolithe or by getting the engine of a 1969 Plymouth GTX roaring back to life.

David's crew of automobile mavericks turn rust into gold and deal with all the dents along the way. However, it is not just about the cars. David scours the planet's most elite auctions with friend and investment partner Larry Burns. They often bring back four wheeled gems to fix-and-flip. Shop manager Thomas Douglas keeps the restoration garage machine running smoothly.
