ABOUT US

KEBON VINTAGE CARS BALI

WELCOME TO KEBON VINTAGE CARS!

Kebon Vintage Cars translates to the “Garden of Vintage Cars”, which is quite literally where Mr Jos Dharmawan, founder of Kebon first started his vintage car collection – in a garden in East Bali.

What started out as a love for collecting wooden toy cars in his childhood, Mr Jos soon turned that love into a passionate hobby when he could finally afford his first vintage car in 1996. Since then, he’s been collecting unique antiques and vintage cars in his personal garage to keep his childhood dream going.

In 2019, Mr Jos finally turned his lifelong dream into reality by opening a vintage car museum in hopes of sharing his passion for vintage cars, and to keep Bali’s tourist attractions exciting and diversified.

Mr. Jos is currently the advisor for PerhimpunanPenggemar Mobil Kuno Indonesia(PPMKI) , ( the Association of Indonesian Old Car Fans ) in Bali, and is dedicated to preserving vintage cars beautifully while keeping communities strong and cohesive.

Kebon has over 100 vintage cars from all over the world on display, and the collection ranges from pre-war era cars to well-known automobile brands such as Chevrolet, Cadillac, Dodge, Pontiac, Morgan, Mercury, Plymouth, Hudson, Fiat, Mini Cooper, and many more.

Some historical cars in Indonesia are also featured, such as the Plymouth 1948, who’s original owner was Indonesia’s First Lady (Soekarno’s Wife) – Ibu Fatmawati.

The restoration team takes a lot of care and effort to restore and maintain each vehicle to near original specifications, and most of the cars are still operational. Visitors can rent them for their event needs.

It is our hope that our diverse collection will offer our audience a panoramic look into the rich automotive heritage that can be found nowhere else in Bali.
