FOR ANYONE with an interest in local classic cars, Rare Spares should be a familiar name. Started nearly 50 years ago, it has over time developed a massive range of parts that has helped countless restoration projects get back on the road.

The company has decided to celebrate its achievements with a video documentary on the business and its foundations.

It says: “In our newly completed video documentary, we felt it appropriate to pay tribute to the guys who steered the company from its early days as a cottage industry in the fledgling restoration market, to what it is today, the foremost restoration component supplier in Australasia.

“Follow the journey from the very beginning, hearing stories from those who were there from the start. Listen to Australian Motor Sport Hall of Fame member John Bowe talk about how important some of these components have been to keeping his racing cars on the track. Learn how innovation and technology have helped change the way Rare Spares provides product to customers.”
