About Us Welcome, my name is Paul Bennett and I am the Managing Director here at Pilgrim MotorSports and musclecar.uk and I would like to take this opportunity to discuss our business, experience and potential future with you. At a very early age, I was introduced to cars both racing and classic, Formula one to be precise. My uncle was a director of a car showroom in Brighton which ran a small owner/driver Formula 1 team. They raced with the likes of Graham Hill and Jim Clark. In order to fund their dream, they used to buy and sell the older F1 cars which I got the opportunity to sit in! I remember the amazing noise their engine made, so it’s no wonder that at the young age of six I was totally hooked. Even now at the Goodwood Revival meeting’s when they line up at the starting line, it takes me right back in a flash. From my first classic car purchase of a TR4a when I was 20 years old, I knew I had a passion for this part of the car Industry. Having been involved in car showrooms all my life I gained a great deal of experience in sales and after sales care with customers being no 1 priority. When the opportunity arrived to buy Pilgrim Cars, a world-renowned manufacturer of the AC Cobra and Speedster recreations, it’s no surprise that I jumped all it with my business partner Adrian Hewetson. Adrian had been a friend of mine for some thirty years and is a renowned classic car restorer. By combining our vast experience, it became an ideal project to build a “Shelby” style Cobra and Mustang business. At our factory, located in the picturesque surroundings of the South Downs in West Sussex you will find all types of classics being restored. It is our vision to have a classic car business a ‘one stop shop’ where nearly every part of the restoration process is on site and shown love from our highly experienced team of employed full-time mechanics and technicians. As we have had our own personal experience of owning classics, it was always disappointing to have to deal with long delays, waiting for work to be completed on our classics motors. Adrian and I wanted to address this within our factory by installing our own paint shop, metal shop, fabrication department, electrics department, suspension and design department, all contained within two large workshops. We have assembled a fantastic team of “old school” mechanics and craftsmen, who understand what it is like to deal with classic cars and all have a clear passion for the “real cars” as they describe them. Our top mechanics also service and upgrade the new series of Mustang models, fully supported by our suppliers. We are an authorised Steeda Performance parts dealer. So, anything connected to your prized Ford Mustang or classic can be delivered. We believe in innovation, having won the contract to design and build the Autonomous delivery vehicle for the Academy of Robotics who are partnered with Aberystwyth University. We all love what we do, we get to meet some great people and their equally great cars. I hope you will come and visit us, and I will be delighted to give you a factory tour and discuss any requirements you may have over a nice cuppa. All the best, Paul.
