Great to hear from a customer on completion of his long term restoration project. The car is built on a 1921 TT chassis, with a '27 scuttle, Pontiac V8 and brush painted finish! Amazing persistence to get this completed.

From barn find to new owner

This 1923 English Model T Ford ton truck has been in pieces for over 50 years. We have recently reassembled all the original parts so that a full restoration can begin by the new owner. On it's maiden test drive the woodworm had done their job with the rear wheel and as you can see from the photographs a spare was called for (only 100yds from the workshop!!).

Another success story!

This body was reunited with it's chassis in 2014. Click through the images and you will see the tranformation from storage to driving car.
