A team of mechanics got down and dirty to bring a classic 1980s red Cortina back to life.
The team from North Oxford BMW and MINI in Long Hanborough volunteered their time and effort to restore the vintage vehicle for their charity of the year, Sobell House Hospice.
The car was sold for £3,000, with all the money going to the Headington based charity.
Managing director William Le Fevre bought the 1980s Mk5 Ford Cortina at a charity auction in October last year. The car had previously been sat in a garage since 1997.
Mr Le Fevre spotted an opportunity for the team to have some fun restoring a classic car, while raising money for a good cause.
He said: “The team volunteered hours of their time, at our state-of-the-art body shop in Long Hanborough.
“We brought the car back to life and in three months we completely transformed it – it is absolutely stunning.
“The car was stripped right back to a shell, new wings fitted and it was re-painted to the spec of a brand-new car.
“We loved this project and are delighted that we’ve been able to use the opportunity to raise much needed funds for our local hospice care provider, Sobell House.”
Sobell House, located in the Churchill Hospital, provides specialist palliative care and support to around 3,000 adult patients and their families each year.
Corporate partnerships manager Tim Wraith said the hospice has “loved” seeing the project come to life.
He said: “We are enormously grateful to the team at North Oxford BMW and MINI. It’s so great to see a fundraising initiative involve such great camaraderie amongst a team.”
The Cortina was the United Kingdom’s best-selling car during the 1970s.
