Chevrolet Corvette’s Nifty Fix

Our new competition car, the 1979 Chevrolet Corvette has come into the workshop for a small repair. We discovered there was an issue with the power steering wherein a leak had occurred. This was easily resolved by replacing cutting off the cracked part of the hose and reinstalling it as the component was long enough already to amend.

Power Steering The Jensen 541R

Both our 1957 and 1960 Jensen 541R’s had an upgrade in steering system this week.

John, our classic car workshop manager explained, “It’s a like-for-like exchange really. We take the old steering column out and replace with power steering.”

In some other cars this process can be much more complex, but for the Jensen’s it’s a case of replace and rewire.

“I then make sure it’s all fitted nicely away,” explains John, “so you can’t see it.”

We love the concept of transforming classic cars by upgrading things like power steering, aircon and installing modern technology including sound systems, Bluetooth and GPS.
