15 years old on 22nd July, £15 off an MOT

Yes Buckingham Ford is 15 years old this year, it was on the 22nd July 1996 that we opened our doors for the first time. And it will be us giving out the presents.

Of course the showroom hear at Ford street has been here since 1888, before the engine took to the roads, making horse drawn carriages and hand carts on site, and then selling them from the showroom.
We may be venturing down memory lane on our birthday, but before then we will have over 15 great offers for you to enjoy, over the coming weeks.

The first is the continuation of the £15 off we started at the beginning of the year when you have a car mot'd with us, normal price £54 but just £39 with us, i am not sure that we can continue running this promotion beyond our Birthday so grab your voucher now at:

If you are looking for a FREE mot you can also get that on the same page, with a major service.

Happy Birthday to us soon.

The Sun is out, need a car thats fun for under £4000

The sun is out and here to stay for easter, and hopefully into next week. And this great little convertible is just the carriage to turn up in at a Royal wedding or a barbecue.
It has had 5 owners, but don't be put off as they have all looked after this one, as they have all maintained it wonderfully, as you can see from its full service history, One owner we believe and we don't know which one has been parking it a little too close to the kerb as you can see on the near side alloy wheel, but they probably had other things on there mind as they parked it, like just how good they looked in there cute convertible.
I have had a look around, and there isn't a car that can give you this much fun for under £4000 that comes with the good pedigree that this one does, and 6 months warranty, before you take it away we will service it and give it a nice new MOT, so you get piece of mind as well.
If things do get a little too hot, you can always put the hood back up, and turn on the air conditioning to get your temperature down. Take a look at all the nice pictures and specification here
This just could be the carriage you have been waiting for to take you away?
Have a great Easter everyone

Not just accident damage in our bodyshop

This was the end result, of a full restoration of this fantastic looking E-Type Jaguar, we were approached by the owner to do all the paint work for the car, after we had done some insurance repairs on a Land Rover and a Bmw for the company he owns.
The car actually belonged to his Father, and at some point in the past he had promised his Father who had had the E-Type for a number of years, that he would get the car restored to its former glory.
He was carrying out all the mechanical and interior work himself, so gave us the car piece by piece to prepare and paint.
We started with the main chassis, doors and boot, As the car had had a number of repairs in the past, and a total repaint at some point. The owner applied to Jaguar to find out what the original colour of the car was, so that it was back to its original colour. We then took the car back to bare metal before repairing any imperfections as you can see in the picture below.
He then had them back so he could start the rebuilding of the engine and the interior of the car.
He then gave us the front, which comes in one piece, and was the hardest part to prepare, due to the fine lines of the E-Type this took a fair few hours, as we didn't want this car having a lot of filler used on such a fine car.
The result was an E-Type that looked brand new, he had made a great job of the rebuild.
