- The hit motoring show will return to the Discovery Channel in the New Year
- Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead are back to find, restore and sell iconic cars for a profit
Next year will see petrolheads Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead will roar back onto Discovery for a brand-new series of WHEELER DEALERS.
Due to premiere on the Discovery Channel on Monday 7th January 2019 at 9pm, the new series will see experienced car dealer Mike and talented mechanic Ant team up and embark on another monumental motoring mission: to find and restore iconic cars to later sell for a profit at their LA-based shop.
In the series, Mike has the challenging job of finding vehicles that have money-making potential. He then hands them over to Ant, who tackles everything from bare metal re-sprays to gearbox swaps to bring them back to their former glory. From the sunny beaches of southern California to the coldest edges of Maine, the series scours the US from coast-to-coast for the best vehicles to buy, restore, test and sell for a tidy profit. What treasures will the guys find and revamp on their epic adventures?
As the new series kicks off, Mike finds a rare beast: a 1976 Mercury Capri MK2 with the classic 2.8 litre V6. However, it’s not without its problems, which means a lot of work for Ant. Throughout the series, Mike and Ant will discover and restore a host of iconic cars, including:
- 1976 Mercury Capri MK2
- 1995 Volvo 850 T-5R Wagon
- 1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo
- 2002 Corvette C5 Z06
- 1991 Alfa Romeo 164L
- 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit GTI
- 2004 Dodge Ram SRT-10
- 1991 Lotus Elan M100
