Wheeler Dealers 5
CLASSIC CARS THAT HAVE REACHED THE END OF THE ROAD GET A JUMPSTART AND NEW MILEAGE ON WHEELER DEALER
From a Mercedes 280SL to a Series III Land Rover, WHEELER DEALER has host Mike Brewer and mechanic Edd China fixing up another range of classic vehicles. With Mike’s salesman expertise and Edd’s mechanical talent, they seek out more mechanical challenges to overhaul on Discovery Turbo’s WHEELER DEALER. Brand new episodes air every Wednesday at 2200 hrs (10:00 pm SIN/HK) beginning February 4. Encores on Saturday at 1230 (12:30 pm) and 2030 (8:30 pm).
On each episode of WHEELER DEALER, Mike and Edd are on a mission to salvage repairable enthusiast vehicles. Working on a budget, they select a particular make and model to repair, then sell it to a new owner. Mike – the salesman extraodinaire – is responsible for buying the original vehicle then selling it after it has been repaired. Edd is the mechanical genius who gets the vehicle back into roadworthy condition. The WHEELER DEALERs are back with new episodes, new challenges, and new (old!) cars!
Join Mike and Edd as they put their refurbishing skills to the test in these episodes of WHEELER DEALER:
Mike goes to Germany to buy a Mercedes, and after some hard-bargaining he's the proud owner of a 1984 Mercedes 280SL. But Edd is less than impressed when he sees the brakes.
Edd continues to work on the Mercedes 280SL, fitting a new steering wheel, hood and set of wheels. When the job's done, Mike tries to get a decent price for it.
Mike has a budget of £5000 to buy a Lotus Esprit. He finds one without a MOT (British road-worthy certificate), which could be a big risk. Edd starts by ripping out the interior and the engine.
Edd continues to refit the Lotus Esprit that Mike bought, changing the cam belt and replacing the manifold before replacing the interior. Will they be able to sell it for a profit?
Mike heads for Turin to try and buy a Fiat 500. The problem is that the only way to get it back to the UK is to drive it. Will the little car make it back?
The 1971 Fiat 500 finally makes it back to the UK, with the help of a trailer. Edd gets to work giving the car a complete paint job before the boys try to sell it.
After a nervous test drive, Mike plumps for a 1981 Series III Land Rover to buy and do up. He and Edd decide to do an LPG conversion on the old warhorse.
The 1981 Series III Land Rover that Mike bought is coming up for its new MOT and the boys are nervous. But they take it for a good test drive before getting it ready for sale.
Mike heads for Dijon, France to try and buy a bargain Citroen DS. After a struggle, he manages to get his hands on one and heads back to the UK for Edd to have a look at it.
The Citroen DS's suspension has turned out to be a nightmare, and Edd has a hard time with it. Plus Mike has to search for a new interior. Will the boys be able to turn a profit?
Mike has £5000 to buy a Rolls Royce. But when he's offered a 1984 Bentley Mulsanne Turbo he takes a chance, much to the dismay of Edd when he sees the paintwork.
The disastrous paintwork on the 1984 Bentley Mulsanne Turbo is proving to be a problem for Edd. Will it be up to scratch when Mike tries to sell it?
