The first eBay Car Challenge Goes live
Three restoration projects will each receive £4,000 to spend on car parts from ebay.co.uk
Any car enthusiast that has a restoration project sat in their garage or workshop is invited to enter the eBay Car Challenge. Hopeful projects can range from a surprising barn find that’s
gathering dust, to a prized family heirloom needing funds to get it back to its former glory.
The three projects will be chosen by eBay on 3 April 2016, with each restoration receiving £4,000 in funding to spend on over 270,000 live listings of car and motorbike parts and accessories available on ebay.co.uk. The restorers will then have until 3 July 2016 to complete their project.
"eBay is the first destination for any car restoration project. The eBay Car Challenge will bring to life the wide selection of car parts and accessories that can only be found in one place, that’s eBay. And in turn will showcase the passion and love of amateur mechanics from across the country,” says Murray Lambell director of retail car parts & accessories, eBay.
To get involved in the eBay Car Challenge, simply email a photo of the car in its current condition with 500 words outlining the restoration project including history of the vehicle and the work that needs completing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
