When this magnificent 1956 Ford Sunliner pulled in to the drive of the workshop it certainly caught our eye. It was impressive. The owners were passing through town on their way to a car show and needed a Geelong mechanic to help with a few adjustments it required. We were more than happy to help.

The Sunliner was incredibly close to original condition. The owners had always wanted to own one and after taking 40 years to find one, it was certainly worth the wait! They brought it over from the States and it’s a 3 on the tree manual they had converted to a right hand drive. It was repainted, keeping the original colour and the interior was lovingly restored and honestly looks like it just left the factory floor. It was absolutely immaculate and a beautiful, impressive car.

The owners were rapt they found us stating that after finding our workshop online it looked impressive, but they were even more impressed upon arrival. They were confident we would look after their car in just the same way they would and happily entrusted us to carry out the required work. Our Geelong mechanics are highly skilled and take a great deal of care and pride in their work.

It was great to have the Sunliner in the workshop and the owners were really nice people. They showed us photos of some of the other cars they have restored and their passion for unique cars was pretty obvious. We were glad to be able to help them out on their way to the car show, where we’ve no doubt the car would be greatly respected and admired. If you need us to help out with your own special car then don’t hesitate to contact us.
