Wheeler Dealers is set to return to UK screens in 2019, with an array of iconic second-hand cars in need of a second chance. In what will be the second half of Series 15, Mike Brewer and Ant Anstead will fix and flip a variety of unique used cars from their southern California shop.
In the new episodes, Mike set about finding vehicles that have the highest 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.
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.
Throughoutthe series, Mike and Ant will discover and restore a host of iconic cars, including a 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, and a 1991 Lotus Elan M100.
Wheeler Dealers will return exclusively to the UK on Discovery Channel at 9pm Monday 7th January 2019.
