A Vintage Voyage – Peters & May Automotive Transport 82-year-old Myron Stephens Sprint

After almost a century as a race car; this vintage Myron Stephens Sprint has certainly done her fair share of miles over the years! Destined for Lymington UK; Peters & May Automotive transported this old racer from Orange County California, USA safely over 6,580 miles.

The specialist Warehousing and Automotive Transport teams at Peters & May were delighted to play their part in the long history of this beautifully restored vintage vehicle. A brilliant example of the growth of Peters & May, this project was an exciting one for everyone involved! A full Peters & May solution, the collection, packing and loading US side was managed by recently acquired Transport Partners in Charleston USA. A great project and perfect example to mark ongoing collaboration. 

Jenny Elstone, Sales & Automotive Manager at Peters & May explained “Our relationship with this client was founded back in 2013. Having followed the restoration project over the last 5 years, it is a pleasure to have been selected to transport the vehicle to her final destination. Such a vintage treasure requires careful transportation, something Peters & May, with their bespoke solutions are experts in”.

Providing a door-to-door solution, Peters & May designed a bespoke block and brace scheme to cater for the unique dimensions of the vehicle. With a narrow chassis, but wide tyres the Myron Stephens Sprint required extra support in transit to limit rattle within the container. Loaded into its own container via a ramped enclosed car transporter, the vehicle was pushed and rolled in and out safely, with no driving involved.

After the 15-day shipment by sea and road, the Myron Stephens Sprint arrived safely in its container ready for unloading by our expert Warehousing Team at Peters & May Head Office in Eastleigh, Southampton. After careful extraction from the container, the vehicle was moved to its final destination in Lymington ready to stand proud in all its glory.

The proud of owner of this custom built classic race car works closely with enthusiasts and collectors throughout the world. With family members having raced in F2 & F3; racing is at the heart of Andrew Hurst’s passion. As a specialist in transportation of racing vehicles and racing yachts, this project is a very exciting one for the Peters & May team.

Andrew was pleased with the service Peters & May automotive teams provided: “Peters & May provided an excellent door to door service. After years in the planning, it was great to work with a company that could provide a bespoke logistics solution to cater for the unique requirements of the Myron. From packing and loading, to shipment and clearance, the team at Peters & May had it covered – they come highly recommended!”
