CRAFTSMANSHIP LIES AT OUR HEART
Our master craftspeople deftly restore some of the most beautiful automobiles ever created. Our world-class classic car restoration services encompass carpentry, paintshop, engineering, welding, panel craft and more, with our craftspeople ensuring that every repair or replacement is applied with the most fastidious precision and craft.
Unmatched knowledge of parts and restoration
We are world leaders in the supply and manufacture of parts for pre-war Rolls-Royce models. Our specialist engineers in our sister company Fiennes Engineering can also reclaim, reverse engineer or manufacture new parts from our vast library of original engineering blueprints. Such intimate knowledge underpins our classic car restoration projects where our craftsmen in carpentry, paintwork and panel craft combine with mechanical engineers to deliver world-beating restoration projects.
The age and marque where our expertise began
Our classic car restoration specialists are world-renowned in the restoration and conservation of Pre-War Bentley motor cars. All aspects of the restorations including carpentry, panel craft, mechanical engineering and paintwork are carried out in our own facilities in the Cotswolds.
Expertise in other
Over the years we have extended our expertise, founded on Rolls-Royce and Bentley, to the restoration of any classic marques from anywhere in the world. Our team of classic car restoration specialists, craftsmen and engineers will apply the same skill and attention to detail when working on cars from an Alvis or Bugatti to a Wolseley.
We understand classics
of any age or marque
Whilst the definition of Modern Classics is continually evolving, so too is our ability to restore and repair the widest range of marques. Whether it's a complete or partial restoration, maintenance, or service we have specialists who can deliver the same quality of workmanship to Aston Martin, Mini and Morgan, Jaguar and Jensen, Ford and Ferrari.
