GIBBS BRAND & 356 PORSCHES….THE PERFECT COMBINATION!

We didn’t need to be asked twice when we were invited to visit the highly renowned classic Porsche expert Paul Smith of PR Serviceswww.prs356.co.uk. His workshops are always full to the brim with the most mouthwatering 356′s and we are proud to say that Gibbs Brand is in constant use, whether on general servicing or as part of the rust-proofing program on their award-winning full restorations.
Check-out this cool video walk-through of their workshops and a ride out in a bare metal 356!…..

A SURPRISE SNEAK PREVIEW AT STROMBERG TODAY: (AND IT’S NOT A NEW CARBURETOR!!)

When the Stromberg Carburetor Company ordered a case of Gibbs Brand for their workshops, we decided to make a long-overdue visit to their facility in Suffolk.
There’s not much we can add to what’s already been said about their now legendary carbs, other than to say it was comforting to see that they are all still hand-built on site; a rare thing these days!
What we also weren’t expecting was to get a look at the prototype of their latest product; an all-new, beautifully engineered front-mount Flat-Head Distributor. It’s similar in appearance to an original unit,(it even takes a standard cap) but has electronic internals for reliability. Its compact size will also be a great help in tight engine bays. Keep an eye on their website for more details: www.stromberg-97.co.uk
The final surprise of the day was to get a tour of a little known off-shoot of the company; their bespoke fabrication shop where they have some very cool projects underway…
Thanks Clive and Rick for a great visit!
