Charles Leith is a classic car sales and brokerage specialist based in Fordingbridge.

They have a collection of fine classic and historic cars they sell on behalf of collectors.

The objective

Charles Leith approached Webbed Feet to help him build a brand new website. His expectations were to be able to upload classic cars and to create and convey a brand image that resonates with his desired target audience: classic car collectors.

The solution

The brand personality was inspired by the styling of an old number plate which fits perfectly with the classic car theme. The font is a hand-drawn script font further adding to the classic styling of the website. Typically, classic car websites have a monochrome dark green theme, but we wanted to be a little bit different. We decided to use a mix of red and blue with different colour tones.

Images of the cars are the main focal point for the website design. Having a wider, more modern look makes the images pop for buyers, so they can look closely at each image in detail.

The website features a custom-built vehicle listing system that allows our client to add cars and images from the admin area. He can also mark them as either for sale, sold or hidden. On the front-end, customers can view vehicles for sale and previously sold. Rather than generating a filtering system, our client can order the vehicles as a priority, which helps for highly sought after vehicles.

Our content management system (CMS) is built with Laravel, a powerful application framework that allows us to custom build the backend depending on our client's specific needs. This offers a huge amount of flexibility compared to other systems on the market.
