This 1967 Jaguar MKII arrived after having been broken into and its interior gutted. After some careful surgery, the Jaguar’s interior was repaired to its previous pristine condition.
The next stage was restoring the paintwork that had suffered over the years. A small job for Chris in our paint-shop, he’ll have this beautiful classic looking her very best in no time.
With the paintwork done, the Jaguar can move onto its final stage of restoration; nursing those bumps and scratches out.
This week we’ve giving a warm welcome to some fantastic classics. Arriving in the workshop we’ve had a real mix, from a 1967 Jaguar MKII to a 1972 MG Midget.
First up, our beautiful 1951 MGTD joined the workshop this week to begin recommissioning work. She’s already had a service, a brake check, her electrics have been tended to and she’s even been treated to a thorough polish. We’re already in love with this stunning car!
Next in was our break-in survivor, our lovely 1967 Jaguar MKII. This pretty classic was broken into and is with us for back seat repair and some minor dent damage.
It’s such a shame to see a classic car purposefully damaged in this way. But, we have just the team to put her right and return her to her former glory.
Our brilliant little 1972 MG Midget came to us this week with a puncture and a cracked distributor cap. The team are going to get her repaired and back on the road in no time.
Our exquisite 1989 Jaguar XJRS TWR arrived this week for a full survey to see what work needs to be carried out by our expert classic car technicians. We’ll be keeping you posted with what we uncover in the next few weeks.
Another Jaguar arrival at the workshop this week, was our gorgeous 1963 Jaguar SS100. With us for a couple of light repairs noted on her latest MOT. We’ll be sure to have her driving smoothly once more.
So there you have it, a warm welcome to all our new arrivals this week. We’re now bursting at the seams with classic cars! There’ll be a busy few weeks ahead trying to get this beauties fixed up and back to their owners.
Car accidents happen, and they’re upsetting. But nothing breaks our little classic-car-loving hearts more than when someone purposefully damages someones pride and joy.
This gorgeous 1967 Jaguar MKII came to us after having been broken into.
The car’s been left in a very sorry state. The back seat’s been ripped apart, in what we suspect was the thief’s attempt to get into the boot and steal its contents.
But, with no access to the boot from the backseat and having sustained no major external damage, this little Jag has had a fairly lucky escape.
We’ll be pleased to see her interior put right and send her on her merry way.
So be careful you cat-burglars, this is a Jaguar that might bite back!
In today we have our 1967 Jaguar Mk II 3.4. We are looking to fit a brand new stainless steel exhaust system along with some remedial works to carry out. The handbrake is not holding properly and we require Pete to carry out a pre-MOT inspection.
