As an English television presenter, motor enthusiast, designer, and artist Ant Anstead loves cars, and he loves to restore them to their best. On a mission to help save classics from becoming the next frying pan, Anstead joined Wheeler Dealers in season 14.

Working as the mechanic didn’t bring him very much celebrity limelight until he met Christina Haack from Flip or Flop. The two began dating, and Anstead’s fame began to rise.

Anstead’s job on Wheeler Dealers was to restore cars

Anstead worked his fingers hard with his crew on Wheeler Dealers. He was tasked with taking in a vehicle and restoring it under a budget to sell to another enthusiast. The show took in different models of unique and classic vehicles that needed repairs and created a sellable product.

Anstead was the lead mechanic and presented the finished vehicle back to the owner for approval after repairs were finished. The show’s success has led it to return to the UK, but Anstead did not go with them.
