Classic car restoration – Fixing up with Amazon

No primary category set

Amazon are making a play for the classic car restoration enthusiast with a tie up with Practical Classics magazine. Editor Danny is joined by workshop guru Clive to work on a Volkswagen T4 Camper van.

Amazon might not be the first place you would think of when looking for parts for your classic car restoration project, but there’s not only plenty of product placement throughout the videos, including Amazon Basics maintenance tools, along with all the oils, filters, and lubes you’ll need in your workshop. Plus, if you’re watching the series on the Fixing up with Amazon landing page, everything used in the episode is linked and available to instantly buy.

Motors is a big business and, especially with the muted economy, more people will be looking to keep their cars serviced at home when they can to save on garage costs so the timing couldn’t be better. For the classic car restoration market, typically you’d be looking for parts from specialists, but you’ll still find the general maintenance parts on Amazon, even if you can’t find the wood trim for your Mark II Jaguar dashboard.

Amazon have also got a ‘Your garage‘ feature enabling you to add your own vehicles to the marketplace and source parts that you know will fit. However, unlike some ‘Garage’ parts finder features, you can’t simply enter your reg number to find your vehicle, you’ll have to know the make, model, variant, and exact engine type to be able to add your car. Frankly I know my Ford Ranger has a 2.5l engine but I haven’t a clue it’s a 2.5 Tdci or a 2.5 Tddi… which is probably why I don’t service it myself… if you do know the difference then Amazon Garage is for you.
