Time to rediscover former glories

eBay is looking for interesting car restoration projects that it can back to the tune of £4,000.

As part of the eBay Car Challenge, it will select three projects for funding on 3 April, when each will be given £4,000 to spend on over 270,000 live listings of car and motorbike parts and accessories available on ebay.co.uk.

The restorers will then have until 3 July 2016 to complete their project.

Murray Lambell director of retail car parts & accessories, eBay, said, ‘eBay is the first destination for any car restoration project. The eBay Car Challenge will bring to life the wide selection of car parts and accessories that can only be found in one place, that’s eBay, and in turn will showcase the passion and love of amateur mechanics from across the country.’

To get involved in the eBay Car Challenge, email a photo of the car in its current condition with 500 words outlining the restoration project including history of the vehicle and the work that needs completing to ebaycarchallenge@launchpr.co.uk.
