Classic car restoration is the process of sympathetically restoring you classic car to as close to original as possible.

The restoration of any classic car can be a lengthy and expensive process. We at AV Classics have found the best and most cost effective results are achieved by the owner and restorer each understanding what is required, the decisions needed and the standards that are to be achieved.

Our skilled craftsmen, working as a team will restore your classic to its former glory and very often due to modern materials and processes will be better finished and protected than new.

Whether it is a minor refurbishment or a full restoration the process still contains four elements.


  • Strip and assessment

    This stage must be completed thoroughly before any restoration can begin. This includes full mechanical and structural stripping, boxing and labelling of all components before the next stage begins.

  • Restoration

    Whether this is a mechanical or structural and cosmetic restoration or both only skilled craftsmen using the best materials and tools will successfully transform your tired bodywork and worn mechanicals to as new.

  • Assembly

    Bringing together all of the restored and rebuilt elements and installing them with care and attention.

  • Test and finish

    This being the final stage where everything comes together and we prepare your car for final handover. This includes testing of all mechanical and electrical components, brakes, transmission body seals and final polish and detailing. Your classic will only be handed over once inspected and signed off by the customer.
