Post and discuss all general info about Vesters & Neirinck here.
You may start new topics on specific cars, projects and makes designed and/or bodied by Vesters & Neirinck.

The origins of the highly skilled firm seem likely to be with Brussels' coachbuilder "Vesters, Inc.", which was first recorded in the press about 1914. About ten years later, in 1923, the firm of Vesters & Neirinck was listed as an exhibitor at the Belgian Auto Salon of that year. They would subsequently maintain a stand at shows throughout Europe for the decades to come, highlighting their specialized coachbuilt designs for potential discriminating customers. Never a high volume coachbuilder by choice, they produced stylish designs for a discriminating clientele on many different types of chassis', including Minerva, Rolls-Royce, Delage, Delahaye, and even a Graham.

This supremely talented Belgian coachbuilder clearly recognized the appeal of the 41/4 Bentley. With an array of sophisticated continental marques from which to choose, they chose instead to build some of the most stunning coachwork of the late prewar period on the Derby chassis. Records indicate that Vesters & Nierinck built approximately 11 unique bodies for special order on Derby Bentleys. The last body was delivered in 1938. The exact date of when the company ceased to exist is unknown.

Hi,
I wonder how Vesters & Neirinck could build still in 1949 so outstanding cars as the Austin Sheerline without leaving any trace to follow their activity.
Are there new information available?

regards,
Sheerline

As we see a Graham-Paige on the right, it could be the Vesters & Neirinck stand. Not sure..

But what this Mercedes-Benz could be ? A car from Vesters & Neirinck too ?
