You take great pride in your classic car. You love how individual it is and you appreciate every line, every contour; you look at your classic car and understand that its life started as man's vision, drawn by hand and then passed to experts to build it. Every detail of the headlamps, the wire wheels; every aspect reflects the era of your car...it's a thing of beauty.
But inevitably your car will need some tender loving care and as an enthusiast you are able to carry out some of the work yourself. However, you know that at some point you will need a professional restorer to help you keep your car in pristine condition. It may only be a small area of rust that needs taking back and respraying, maybe some re-chroming could be required or maybe it's time for a complete respray.
But who do you go to? Who can you trust with your pride and joy?
Since 1970 we have owned, raced and restored classic vehicles and we have extensive workshops and a classic car showroom in Essex. We come highly recommended and have carried out restoration projects for the Executive Editor of Jaguar World Monthly Magazine and also for Practical Classics Magazine. Our work has often featured among magazine pages and has also been topic of conversation for Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend, Presenters of the Channel 4 restoration programme, Classic Car SOS (please see below).
But most of all, we love working on classic cars. If you are looking for a professional to help you with your car, call us on 01376 327000 to find out how we can help you.
Tim Shaw & Fuzz Townshend on our restoration work
Here's what Tim Shaw and Fuzz Townshend, Presenters of Classic Car SOS, said when they by chance saw this fantastic Renault GT Turbo that CL Classics had carried out restoration work on:
CL Classics carried out the bodywork restoration and fitted the doors, wings, bonnet and tailgate. The rest of the car was superbly fitted up by proud owner Simon Thomas.
