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.

1954 Alvis TC21 DHC

The Alvis TC21 was a sports tourer in the best thirties tradition. Superb coachwork - a combination of aluminium and steel on an ash frame was mounted on a very substantial chassis. This car arrived with us needing a complete rebuild which necessitated stripping the car right down, refurbishing the chassis to a high standard and then building back up to its former glory.

1954 Alvis TC1 restoration. The bare chassis

This traditional sports car is built on a substantial chassis shown here. Compare it to the spindly 1920s MG chassis shown to the left of the photo!

Start of the body rebuild. The new ash sills are clearly visible as is the steel inner rear body structure.

1954 Alvis TC1 3 litre straight six engine.

The engine is a 3 litre Straight 6 with twin S.U. carburettors.

1954 Alvis TC1 dashboard

A very traditional dashboard greets the driver. The designers of the period assumed you knew that 'W' meant Wiper, 'C' Choke and 'S' Starter but would you know that 'R' = Reversing Light and 'P' = Panel Light?

The bodyshell nearing completion. The door skins are aluminium and the rest is steel on an ash timber frame. The bonnet top has not yet been stripped of red paint.
