Car Restoration

We specialise in the restoration and conservation of Vintage car, Classic car and Historic car bodywork. 

Carrosserie is the French word for a car’s body, the outer shell that protects it from the elements, as well as the act of building and maintaining that shell. But we believe it’s more than that. Just like a human body, you look below the surface and it’s a living, breathing thing that needs care and attention. It needs to be treated with respect for where it’s come from with one eye on its future, and these are all principles we work by whenever a car comes into our workshop.

We specialise in restoring and reviving vintage, heritage, historic and classic cars of all marques and ages, and with our team of seven expert craftsmen we can undertake just about every form of repair or restoration: From sprucing up the paintwork of a newer classic in our two Dalby paint booths to a complete re-build of a one-of-a-kind vehicle hand built in another era. Using heritage techniques and methods that would have made your vehicle’s original engineers proud, we can methodically restore every nut and bolt of your vehicle using tried and tested methods or the latest technology. Every car deserves to be treated like a masterpiece, and in our fully equipped workshop, our craftsmen have the skills and experience to give your classic car the chance to live out its full potential.
