Since then it’s been three decades of hard work and incredible experiences. For 15 years we rented industrial units in Rettendon, Essex, before moving into our custom-built 100,000 sq/ft facility in Maldon, where we remain to this day. We’ve got 65 craftsmen and women that can take a restoration project from start-to-finish – all without it ever leaving our facility. We originally specialised in Jaguars but around eight years ago we expanded into other marques, including Ferrari, Aston Martin and Maserati, quickly developing a reputation for world-class results.
We have our own engine shop, body shop, metalwork facility, restoration shop, service department and special developments department. We work to whatever our customers ask for; some want concours-winning restorations, while others prefer mechanically-perfect cars with patina that really tells a story. We can spend anywhere from hundreds of hours to many thousands of hours on a project.
Visitors to our Maldon site often describe it as a car enthusiast’s dream, with seven showrooms displaying some of the most incredible models from throughout history, and many examples of our in-house restorations. If I had to pick just one favourite, it would be the Ford GT40 MkIII that was with us for a full restoration – it was the original New York Motor Show car, the original MKIII prototype and one of just seven in existence.
