Pendine specialise in the sale of historic cars for road and track. Whilst focusing specifically on the immediate post-war period through to the 1970s, their experience ranges from Edwardian racers through to the supercars of the 1990s.
Founded by James Mitchell, the showroom is a platform from where established figures within the historic car industry are able to offer an exceptional selection of classic cars.
James was the business manager at Fiskens for almost a decade and is known as a freelance writer for publications including Classic & Sports Car. He is the Senior Writer & Editor of Speed Age Books, a publishing company dedicated to the publication of bespoke, limited edition volumes on important cars and collections. Historical research is an increasingly important factor within the classic car market, making his authority and knowledge a great asset.
The company is named after Pendine sands, the 7 mile stretch of beach on the south coast of Wales that was the setting for Britain claiming and retaining the land speed record in the 1920s. The record runs started with Malcom Campbell in 1924, Parry Thomas with ‘Babs’ in 1926 and finally Campbell again in the first Bluebird in 1927.
In the spirit of those pioneer racers, the mission at Pendine is to become the leaders in their field, breathing fresh life into the historic car market as they go. Find out more on pendine.com or take a look at their listings on collectorscarworld.com
