Alan Wilson was an indentured apprentice for Star Bodies in Oldham and attended Openshaw Technical college studying vehicle and coach building from 1972 until 1976. Alan won a 2nd prize in a country wide competition for timber framing while studying at Openshaw college and gained top honours and credits in the city and guilds examinations.
Alan built and raced Formula 1 Stockcars from the age of 17, winning and gaining invaluable experience in racing and preparing cars to a high standard to take the punishment and horsepower of these exhilarating special cars.
Alan has now passed on his knowledge to his sons, Chris & Rick Wilson who both now work in the family business. The brothers have always been around classic & vintage cars so both have a profound understanding & knowledge of many different manufacturers & models of these vehicles and the neccessary proccesses & requirements of completing any vehicle restoration project.
Chris has studied under Alan since being 17 years of age. Alan insisted he serve a 4 year indentured apprenticeship with him before trying other areas of the vehicle trade. Chris has had the same indentured apprenticeship which Alan had, and has worked at various body shops including a spell at Chevron racing cars building and preparing Chevrons, F1, F2 and GT cars for racing.
