Repairs and rebuilds of classic sports and saloon cars...


We have a great deal of expertise in classic Mercedes and we usually have at least three being worked on at any one time.

Vintage and PV

Sports, racing and saloons from the twenties through to late pre war...


We have lost count of how many Triumph TRs we have rebuilt over the last 20 years. We have also rebuilt many Spitfires and GT models...


In 2015 we moved to modern purpose built workshops. At any time our experienced staff can be working on up to 20 cars doing jobs from complete rebuilds to repairs and routine seasonal servicing...


Over the years we have rebuilt hundreds of engines. We have extensive expertise in engines dating from the turn of the century although we draw the line at modern supercars as we do not have the necessary diagnostic equipment for them. If in doubt please ask.

1953 MG TD Mk2 sports

If you carried out a survey amongst enthusiasts to establish which straightforward classic British sports car they would most like to own, the MG TD would come out high on the list if not at the top. As the T series evolved it became more comfortable and performance improved. Small changes meant that the car got prettier because it maintained that classic British look which everyone enjoys so much. This car is a rare Mk2 which had improved performance and roadholding by virtue of progressive engine and suspension improvements.

The body is ash framed. The sill A and B pillars are shown here. Rot in the timber and loose joints are the main problems and fixing these leads to a real change in the car's character.
