Classic and Collector Car Restoration

There may be no greater feeling in terms of motoring, than the gratification you get driving a car that you have have owned for some years, or had it restored. We understand. These cars have a connection that reaches beyond a machine.

 

The lines, the sounds, the feeling when you turn the key and start her up... there is something about a classic car that is simply unparalleled in a modern machine.

 

Metal, wood, glass, chrome, wool, rubber and paint (and the occasional bit of plastic)

 

Restoring classic and collector cars to a high specification is a passion.

 

We do a lot of these projects. It's what we are known for.

Frame off Restoration

The ultimate in perfection. You know that every bolt is right. That the paintwork looks good, even under the carpets, and the car is like it was when it was new.

 

We can rebuild engines, source and rebuild component parts. Our team are expert at finding the rare and often no longer in production parts that make the car.

 

It takes patience and space. Very often a car is in the shop for months at a time without being moved. We have recently opened our facilities include the space of an adjacent shop to accommodate more of these types of projects.

 

We have a long history with the complete rebuilding of cars. Ask us about how we can help you to plan the process, so that you can savor the times in the car that you built. Nothing feels like it.

Customization and Rehabilitation

From re-upholstering and bodywork to mechanical uprating - we can advise and help direct choices for customization, modernization and restorations.

 

You may want o keep the car entirely original, or as original as possible. You may want to show the car at Concours exhibits. You may just want to improve the ride and handling... we are your partner each step of the way.

Vintage Jaguar XK Series The Jaguar XK150 is a sports car produced by Jaguar between 1957 and 1961. It replaced the XK140.

 

Initially it was only available in fixed head coupé (FHC) and drophead coupé (DHC) versions. The roadster (XK150 OTS - open two-seater) without full weather equipment was launched in 1958. Minimal rear seats were fitted in the coupés. There was no seating or storage space in that part of the open two-seater. The open two-seater broke with tradition and was fitted with high-silled wind-up windows in its new taller doors but retained the very simple folding roof of its predecessors.
