Lancia Flaminia Touring bodied Convertible total restoration

This is the second Lancia Flaminia Touring Convertible we have restored and we got the work through a  recommendation on the back of the work undertaken on another Flaminia Touring convertible. 

All metal and paint was undertaken by ourselves.

Particularly love the colour.

Bristol 407 Saloon repair after accident damage

Being side-swiped by a third-party in any car is traumatic, but when it is your treasured Bristol 407 it must seem doubly bad.

We often undertake insurance work, so should you have the misfortune to be involved in an accident whether at fault or otherwise please contact us. Our work is provably superb and competitively priced.

The Bristol pictured was repaired by making a new door skin as they are not now available, new side locker for spare wheel and numerous other parts were repaired. 

A partial respray was conducted so matching older paint was critical. Another oft forgotten skill for work such as this.

Bristol 405 Drophead body off restoration

Extensive bodywork restoration undertaken on this handsome and rare Bristol.

Mechanical work was in the hands of Spencer Lane-Jones Ltd.

This collaboration has resulted in a superb car that runs wonderfully and it is fair to say is probably in better condition than when it left the factory.

Lotus Ten with Bristol engine stretches its racing legs after a decade of road use

Resurrected after ten years of being off track, but used on road, this Bristol engined Lotus Ten was taken to an AC Owners club sprint in November. 

New harnesses, fire extinguishers, exhaust silencing have been fitted. As they say, racing improves the bread. It certainly did for Lotus. As more racing is undertaken the problems that inevitably show up are being resolved. 

If you need any race preparation for your car, please get in contact with fellow racer and Mitchell Motors owner Andrew Mitchell.

Peugeot 504 Convertible by Pininfarina has a bare metal respray

Looking resplendent against the background of a wet A303, this Peugeot 504 Convertible has just had a bare metal respray.

The car spent most of its life in Jersey and being an island, the salty air and narrow roads meant the bodywork was in need of the Mitchell Motors care and attention despite the car being of low mileage.

Although a rare car a grey one is in for paintwork shortly.
