Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars will make a welcome return to Quest in the New Year.
Dynamic duo, Drew Pritchard and Paul Cowland hit the road once again in a bid to locate some of the UK’s hidden and most desirable classics. Their mission to salvage, restore and then hopefully make a profit on the vintage discovery’s.
Returning exclusively to Quest in the New Year, salvage extraordinaire Drew Pritchard will don his Harris Tweed Salvager Cap to present an exciting brand new series of Salvage Hunters: Classic Cars.
An expert in buying and selling antiques, Drew is once again partnered by experienced car dealer and presenter Paul Cowland, as they scour the length and breadth of the UK to find some of motoring’s hidden gems and classic vehicles.
Experts & Acumen
The combination of Drew’s expert eye and deal-making skills matched with Paul’s extensive mechanical knowledge and business acumen make them a formidable team, in what promises to be the most enthralling series yet! But while Paul and Drew share a passion for cars, when it comes to work, sparks can fly as their different approaches occasionally come to the fore.
With lofty ambitions for the new series, Drew uncovers a real gem in a Jaguar XJS. Fitted with an aftermarket body kit, Drew wants to strip the car back down to its bare bones, and return it to its original best, but Paul has reservations over the scale of the job.

Elsewhere, Drew’s attention is drawn to a Ford Capri as he attempts to turn the tatty boy racer into looking like it’s just rolled out of the showroom.
Countering Drew’s passion however, is Paul’s drilled-in practicality; he’s market-savvy and can spot an opportunity, and whilst he takes risks, he isn’t afraid to walk away from a deal either.
But Drew and Paul’s expertise would count for nothing without the help of Drew’s army of artisans and restoration experts, who work tirelessly to bring these classic cars back to life.
From a specially commissioned wicker-effect paint pattern for an old Morris Minor, to restoring steering wheels for classic sportscars, there is nothing Drew’s crack team cannot fix or restore.
There are some classic gems to be seen on the new show, which will included:
- Jaguar XJS
- Renault 4
- Ford Capri
- Lancia Delta Integrale
- Morris Minor Traveller
- Maserati Ghibli
- BMW 635CSI
- VW Type 3 Fastback
- Rover P6
