1960 Jensen 541R – Awaiting Restoration

Awaiting restoration, we have our 1960 Jensen 541R with matching number engine. The Jensen Owner’s Club have confirmed the identity of the vehicle so she will be stored away until such time as a full restoration can begin.

All in a Jaguar E-Type Roadster…

We often get asked if it is possible for 2 people to go on a 2 week holiday, take everything they need, including the 2 person inflatable kayak, all in a jaguar E-Type Roadster…and as we always say, ‘yes it is’…

Rolls Royce Engine Issues

We have some substantial engine issues to contend with on our 1970 Rolls Royce Silver Shadow 1.

The head gasket has gone which has resulted in the water getting through and over heating the engine. One of the push rods is also severely buckled and we believe the inlet manifold has developed a hair-line crack.

At this stage it looks as though the engine will need to be removed and either rebuilt of replaced with an alternative.

MGTC rebuilding the brakes

We have discovered that our newest arrival, our 1947 MG TC has little to no brakes so busy has got to working stripped and rebuilding.

Whilst the wheels are off we will also touch up the red and black areas that could benefit from a little attention.
