Experienced car dealer Mike Brewer is joined by multi-talented mechanics in a monumental motoring mission: to find and restore iconic cars to later sell for a profit at their LA-based shop. In the series, Mike has the challenging job of finding vehicles that have money-making potential. He then hands them over to a mechanic, who tackles everything from bare metal re-sprays to gearbox swaps to bring them back to their former glory.
Wheeler Dealers Season 16 Full Episode Guide
The Dodge SRT 10 truck has an 8.3 liter V10 Viper engine, and Mike finds one at a price he can't resist. Once Ant is sold on the plan, they dive in, working to make this vehicle powerful enough to dominate on a NASCAR track.
The Golf GTi was a symbol of the 80s, and gave birth to the term 'hot hatch'. Mike finds a prime example of a Rabbit which he believes can be transformed. The market is crying out for cars like this, but Ant has a lot of work to do.
Mike finds a 2002 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 with over 400 hp and zero to sixty in under four seconds; it's a road-legal race car, but Ant is less than enthused when he realizes the scale of the work needed to help it regain those impressive numbers.
Mike tracks down what he believes is the finest-handling front wheel drive car ever made, the Lotus Elan M100. If Ant can get the engine and suspension back to glory, then Mike is convinced that some cosmetic upgrades will seal the deal.
Mike tracks down a rare '91 Alfa Romeo 164L. He loves the look of the car but Ant has his work cut out for him. This Alfa has perfect bodywork, but it has a leaking engine, faulty steering, dodgy brakes, and a host of other issues.
Mike finds a true Swedish Unicorn of the car world; a '95 Volvo 850 T-5R. A station Wagon with a racing pedigree. Unfortunately the turbo in the T-5R is in need of TLC and some left-field thinking is needed from both guys to solve the bodywork issues.
Mike gets his hands on a Japanese Ferrari, also known as a 1991 Toyota MR2 Turbo. One small fix becomes a big problem for Ant as the entire engine has to be removed but at least it gives him the chance to deal with even more problems along the way.
Mike finds a 1976 Mark 2 Mercury Capri with the classic 2.8 liter Cologne V6, and Ant has to completely overhaul the engine, the interior, and his own design upgrade.
