Volkswagen Restoration

Volkswagen has been about accessibility from its very beginning, as a German auto manufacturer committed to making cars into an everyday reality for the everyday person more used to walking and driving motorbikes.

The marque is most famous for its iconic Beetle, officially known as the Volkswagen Type One, which brought cars to the masses through an affordable monthly savings scheme, but over the years the brand has introduced many new and different styles of vehicle to the average consumer. Through a combination of reliable, high quality engineering and exceptional design, Volkswagen has ensured that even at their most basic and spartan, its economy cars would stand the test of time.

The Volkswagen range may not have the same mythology and allure associated with it as Bentley, Rolls Royce or Aston Martin do, but it is replete with a wealth of classic models thanks to that long-standing commitment to reliability and performance. From sports coupes like the Karmann Ghia to hot hatchbacks like the Golf Mk1, the Volkswagen garage is a laundry list of innovative and high performance cars that captured the public imagination and won a place in the hearts of ordinary people while also being genuinely impressive machines in their own right. It’s no wonder that you can find everything from truly historic classics all the way to modern classics in the Volkswagen range, from the manufacturer that virtually invented the modern classic with vehicles that were clearly destined to become collectors items even when they launched.

With no pretentions about being museum pieces, and an ethos that means they are meant to be driven, even famously reliable Volkswagens require care and attention after many years on the road, and we at Carrosserie are perfectly placed to help them. Our dedicated craftsmen have the full range of skills to carry out a complete Volkswagen restoration from minor body repairs to full engine rebuilds, all in that same thoughtful and methodical way that we treat every single heritage vehicle that passes through our workshop.
