Father And Son Are Turning Rust To Riches

Lance, 52, and Merlin McCormack, 20, brought back to life John Lennon’s iconic 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom.

Among the classics Lance, 52 and Merlin McCormack, 20, have worked on included John Lennon’s iconic white 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom, alongside motors worth £15 million and above.
