Vintage Occasions owner Harry Sunderland says: “Our business was founded in 1990 with just one Rolls-Royce Phantom III of 1936 vintage. Such was the interest a second was required, this time a 1934 Landaulette-body style Rolls-Royce. Ths also proved popular and so two more Rolls-Royces were added to our fleet. All of our cars have been fully restored and are maintained by us. For almost 30 years they have been very popular, giving that Downton Abbey experience. We are often asked if we have something different, so after a search and more restoration we can now offer a Ford Zephyr MK 2 convertible and our very latest addition – a 1949 Chevy pick-up truck with full rat rod effect. Th Chevy is mainly aimed at the groom and best man as there is only room for two passengers but to our surprise many brides have shown interest too."
