Affordable, high-quality cars for sale
Ingram Cars was formed by Simon Ingram’s desire to offer excellent quality, well presented, specially selected cars at affordable prices, and to provide a genuine and caring customer service.
Youngest son of Sussex born parents, Simon grew up in the Newhaven and Seaford area in the 70s and 80s and developed an enthusiastic interest in cars.
He particularly recalls being inspired by Fords of that era; models such as the RS 2000, XR3i, XR4i, Escort and Sierra Cosworth, and more recently, the Ford Focus RS.
Simon’s passion for cars grew when, aged 12, he started visiting car dealerships. He collected a vast library of car brochures many of which were from a Ford dealership in Seaford. Aged around 15 he was granted leave from school on a ‘work release’ scheme and kindly, Mr Jermyn of the local Ford dealership, agreed to provide him with the experience. This arrangement extended to cleaning cars at weekends and helping out during the school holidays and busy times of the year. His rewards were rides in all the best and latest new Fords!
With encouragement and support from his parents, he trained as a motor mechanic for a couple of years. Upon realising it wasn’t quite for him, but gaining valuable experience, he spent the next few years working for GKN Autoparts and finally, aged 22, began a long-anticipated career in car sales. Much knowledge and experience were gained in the trade while working with various manufacturers, including a Toyota dealership. Eight years later he returned to the Ford dealership for 18 years becoming Sales Manager.
Over the years he undertook regular and extensive training at Ford’s excellent training facilities in Leicestershire, gaining various awards along the way. He achieved UK product knowledge champion and regularly achieved 100% customer satisfaction scores from customer surveys. He enjoyed the best new cars and became firmly established locally with both private customers and businesses as a trustworthy, friendly, and dependable car sales professional.
After an exceptionally successful career with Ford which spanned nearly two decades, Simon joined forces with (previous customers), John and Thomas Lawrence, who manage a highly professional and successful Health and Safety business. Simon, John and Tom have enthusiastically launched Ingram Cars Limited.
