Classic Rolls Royce to be restored after years in storage

BBC Spotlight

A classic car enthusiast from Dawlish is trying to bring a 1930s Rolls Royce – hidden away for years – back to life.

The car was lost for a decade after being hidden to avoid German bombing during World War Two and spent most of the next 70 years inside a barn on a farm in Wales.

It has fewer than 8,000 miles on the clock.

Classic car enthusiast Mike Waters said it would take lots of work to get it on the road but it would be worth it.

There are a few thousand hours of work in there, and a few long nights. I’m not doing it as part of my job, I’m doing it as my passion and my hobby. It’s evenings and weekends, so things do take time.”
