Car Restoration Project Is a Real Award Winning Triumph!

Students on the motor vehicle course at Communication Specialist College Doncaster (CSCD) are celebrating a real triumph of a restoration project.
The group have been working on an old Triumph Gloria saloon car from 1936, since before the covid pandemic, and have finally completed their work.
Andy Boothroyd, course tutor said: “We are all so proud of the work that has gone into making this car look amazing again.
“It was a true barn find and together we’ve stripped it down and prepped the chassis and worked on some of the panels that needed prepping and painting before being married back up to the car body.
“The Triumph is just one of many projects that our students have worked on as part of their course. These projects allow our learners to gain experience of working on a real life task, be this a trailer, a car, or a van,
“The expertise and skill of Sanjay Topiwala, our motor vehicle, body and paint trainer assessor, who is an ex student of the college, was invaluable on this project.
“It has been a real labour of love but a totally fantastic project for our students to work on and they have learned so much.
“The vehicle is now finished and went to a national Triumph recently!”
The vehicle won the award for Best in Show and Most Desirable Car at the National Triumph Rally in Stratford on Avon and has qualified for the NEC Classic car show in November.
Name, a student at CSCD said: “I never thought that when we were working on such an old car, in such poor condition, that it could turn out so good.
“I was shocked to see the end result and really proud to have worked on it.”
