1947 Vauxhall 10 - first drive in 41 years
If you've seen my other video of this car you will know I bought it after it had been stored in a barn for over 40 years. I have since rebuilt the front brakes and needed to turn it around in the garage to get better access to the rear brakes to rebuild them too. Unfortunately the starting of the engine is missed off the clip, but as I've now rebuilt the fuel pump and put new fuel in the tank, starting up is pretty easy - pull out the choke, turn on the ignition and press the starter. There's still no coolant in the engine, hence why I turned off the engine before stopping. This is the first time I've attempted to drive it at all, so a big moment for me. Hope you enjoy it, feel free to comment if you like.
1951 Henry J -- Fresh Out of Barn
A 1951 Henry J bracket racer that has been in our barn for 24 years. Going to start restoring it this summer, giving it a re-paint and fixing the body damage, especially to the left quarter, where the whole "fin" part of it got creased in. Also at the beginning of the video is a 1958 Desoto Firedome, which was also in the barn, first one actually.
Going to be video documenting the restoration of the Henry J, so keep checking back! =)

This Shelby is a true barn find and yes, it does start and is driven on and off it's enclosed trailer to various car shows.
