Wheeler Dealers Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead return to our TV screens this summer with a brand-new series, here’s when it’s on TV, what cars they’re working on and everything you need to know…
In the new series, broadcast exclusively on Discovery Channel, the dynamic duo continues to track down classic and iconic vehicles in need of some TLC, with each episode challenging the pair to restore a car to its former glory before selling it on for a profit.
Mike is charged with finding vehicles that have money-making potential, while master mechanic Ant can usually be found in the Wheeler Dealers workshop, working on everything from bare metal resprays to gearbox conversions.
This season zips from the sunny beaches of southern California to the coldest edges of Maine as the diverse used car market of the United States is combed for the best vehicles to buy, restore, test and eventually pass on to enthusiastic new owners.
