This car was stored since the mid-seventies and was pretty rough, but had most of its original parts and pieces. It now has a total mechanical and cosmetic restoration including rotisserie body and paint restoration, and a new interior.

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. We cleaned it all up, gave it fresh paint and delivered to the customer to finish the restoration.

1955 Austin Healey 100 LeMans (Modified) This beauty was started over a decade ago for an out of state customer whose health began to wane. We held onto the car for some time hoping to finish it, but I got the call that he wished to part with the project. I stepped up as it started as a very solid car and had many upgrades already done.

The body fabrication and engine was finished, with the chassis already painted in classic black. Some of the suspension and the rear suspension had been started also. The exterior was finished to 600 grit, but still needed some attention. This gave me a really good start to build a really nice and fun 100.

As most of my personal cars have been built, I wanted to be able to both show this car, as well as use it comfortably. The build is to concours standards, bit with some modern updates and M Spec upgrades that could have been added to this solid BN1.

A list of the upgrades incorporated:

  • Fresh M Spec David Brown engine build with 100-S cam
  • Complete “M” Le Mans Kit, carbs, hood, strap, etc.
  • Westlake aluminum head
  • Aluminum back plate
  • Spin on oil filter with Dennis Welch cooler
  • Aluminum radiator with upgraded fan.
  • Aluminum fuel tank
  • BN2 trans with OD (Have original 3 speed)
  • Upgraded HD clutch linkage
  • Front disc brake upgrade
  • Alfin rear brake drums
  • Dennis Welch HD front and rear sway bars
  • New close ration steering box
  • 16” Mahogany Derrington Steering wheel
  • Cast aluminum Dunlop wheels with three ear spinners
  • John Skinner UK interior and boot upholstery
  • John Skinner UK Stay Fast top and tonneau
  • New and restored wiring, switches and gauges
  • 12 volt battery upgrade with tray.
  • Bumper delete with Lucas 700 driving lights
  • Oil cooler vent in shroud.
  • Lucas Le Mans headlamps
  • 100S style hood pins
  • Most trim is original and re-chromed or polished
  • Windshield integrated side view mirrors

I’m very proud of this car and the work the great Sport and Specialty staff has done and enjoy showing and driving it.

1968 Mustang Fastback Resto Mod

Our customer had been talking to us for some time about building a special 1968 Mustang. He had one many years ago, but he wanted this one to be a unique build to him. As a long time Jaguar owner – including both an E and F Type – he knows about classic styling and modern performance. This car was purchased as a stalled restoration and had many pieces already purchased. We used some Shelby based styling pieces, but generally keeping the traditional good looks and styling of the original car. This beauty is now on the road, and is one special Mustang.
