In the Shop

Things move quickly around our shop. Some are here for just a little service, some for repair, and of course some for full restoration. Follow along and you can watch the progress, and see what new projects come along.

1965 Series 1 Jaguar – This car languished in a body shop for over eight years. The body was rust free, but had been severely abused by attempts to remove the paint. An attempted V8 transplant ruined the bird cage, and necessitated replacement. The car is finished in an original dark blue and will sport a British tan interior. An engine rebuild is in process.

1976 Triumph TR6 – The new owner of this really nice TR6 had us go through and check out the car for safety and running stability. We did a full service went through the suspension and brakes which needed attention. We have upgraded to new SU carbs and currently rebuilding the engine.

1965 Series 1 Sunbeam Tiger– We were tasked with doing some suspension work on this potent classic. We overhauled and rebuilt all of the front suspension. We are currently upgrading the car to a fresh wiring harness.

1969 Jaguar Series 2 E Type – This survivor car had been stored in a clean dry environment since the mid 1970s. We brought it back mechanically and got it running and rebuilt the suspension and drivetrain. We are currently working on paint and all glass and trim renewal.

1962 Series 1 Jaguar E Type – The car has been stored since the mid-seventies. It is pretty rough, but has most of its original parts and pieces. The car is headed to a total mechanical and cosmetic restoration to include rotisserie body and paint restoration, and interior.

1959 Austin Healey BN6  – This car came to us after being ravaged by a body shop. Rust repair and old damage was done poorly and made panel alignment almost impossible. The owner will be completing the car once we deliver a straight, aligned and painted body.

1965 Morgan Plus 4 – Doing a clutch replacement, which will require some repairs and machining on the bell housing.

1963 Austin Healey BJ7 Race Car – This project started out with a twin car being built by John and the Sport and Specialty founder Mark Baker. The intent was to build special cars engineered along the lines of the 1960s Sebring racers. After John took over the business he traded his project for a Caterham 7 and stored this car until his other projects were completed. This car will be finished in Aston Martin racing green and be a track only car boasting many high-performance modifications.

1955 Austin Healey 100-4 – This car had its restoration started at a body shop that was to work on it when they had free time. After many years, nothing much was complete, and the work quality was sub-par for such a nice car.  Our goal is to restore it back to its once original quality. Right hand drive car will really be nice when complete!
