Maintain your car

To keep your classic running at its absolute best requires regular maintenance and repair and, as with a modern car, consistent levels of care are often the antidote to larger expenses. Our team can look after everything from the most basic servicing needs of your car through to mechanical or body repairs, no matter the make, model or year.

We also regularly undertake (often extensive) accident repairs should you have an unfortunate incident, and work regularly with the leading insurance companies whenever necessary.

Should you also wish to look into performance, reliability or comfort upgrades for your vehicle, we have an expert team specialising in bespoke projects that are subtly integrated and completely reversible.


Regular changing of fluids and filters, as well as perishables like tyres and brakes, will prolong the life of your classic car and maximise your enjoyment. We regular build cars from the ground-up at Thornley Kelham so our in-house team is hugely knowledgable in the intricate workings of all makes, models and eras of classic cars.
