We love a challenge or two at White’s Bodyworks and this 1900 De Dion Voiturette certainly exercised our expertise and knowledge of all things vehicular and mechanical.
The good news is our team is always open to the challenge and this is one we really couldn’t resist.
The 1900 De Dion Voiturette is a classic in more ways than one. If you want to see what the first cars on the road looked like, then this is the type of vehicle you would have seen at the turn of the 20th century in towns and cities around Britain and Europe.
More About the Voiturette
De Dion-Bouton was one of the first vehicle manufacturers, a French firm that was created in 1881 and continued to make cars right up until the end of the 1950s. With a single-cylinder engine and just two gears, the Voiturette wasn’t the fastest car on the market at the time and there were never that many of them built, but it certainly had a lot of style.
At White’s, we’re able to bring modern methods to help restore all classic cars, including really old ones. Our fully equipped garage is matched by a team who really understand what it means to bring a vintage vehicle back to life.
The 1900 De Dion Voiturette is probably the oldest vehicle that we’ve had in our workshop but, over the years, we certainly dealt with a whole host of classics.
Why White’s Bodyworks is the Classic Car Owners Favourite
Over the last few decades, we’ve developed a pretty good reputation for carrying out repairs and refurbishments for classic cars. When a vintage car owner comes to us, they’re really looking for someone who cares as much as they do.
Finding a skilled team who know what they are doing is important, of course. Repairing a vintage car can often mean sourcing rare parts or even fashioning new ones from scratch. Not only does the car need to be roadworthy, it needs to be repaired in the spirit of the time it came from.
If you are a classic car owner and require either repairs, servicing or other work carried out on your vehicle contact the team at White’s Bodyworks on 01273 933633.
