There are few places better equipped to take care of your cherished Classic.
The list below shows a selection of the vehicles we have restored in recent years:
Range Rover VELAR
VELAR Prototype – hand built and used for various pre-production test procedures, 26 prototype vehicles pre-date the June 1970 launch of the Range Rover.
Range Rover Chassis No. 48
Acquired by Famous Four in 2014, chassis number 48 Range Rover was the 3rd vehicle to leave the factory production line in 1970. It is steeped in a rich and detailed history, painstakingly documented and researched and available with the car.
Range Rover Suffix A Custom Restoration
This 1971 model came to us as a collection of dismantled parts with the original, corroded chassis and axles, and very little else. Our client wanted a top quality restoration, with modern enhancements of 5-speed gearbox, up-rated engine and one-off detailing, whilst retaining the soul of the original Suffix A.
1979 2-Door Classic Range Rover
A late 70s Range Rover – another detailed cosmetic restoration. The UK owner of this particular vehicle wanted a high end cosmetic overhaul of what was a remarkably solid but tired Classic.
Land Rover Series IIA SWB 88-inch 1968
This 1968 model had been off the road for some time when we began a total ground-up nut and bolt restoration to exacting standards.
Range Rover 1980 Part Restoration
This 1980 left hand drive example was sent to us by its Scandinavian owner via North Sea ferry; we collected it, having cleared UK customs with a temporary import licence. Our remit was a cosmetic restoration. Some minor welding was required, and a full restoration of body panels, bumpers, new rubber seals and more gave it a most impressive finish. We re-trimmed the interior; seats, carpets and internal trim panels were fitted, resulting in a beautiful and correctly detailed vehicle.
1971 2-Door Classic Range Rover
This 1971 Suffix A Range Rover is used as a daily driver for the school run in a busy UK city! It’s long term owner visited our stand at the NEC Classic Car Show to discuss his wishes and requirements, delivering it to us a few months later, just before the expiry of its MOT. Sadly the decades of use on British roads had taken its toll.
Range Rover 1992 3.9 V8 EFi
This early 1990s left hand drive 3.9 EFi automatic 4 door Vogue was shipped to us by it’s European owner for restoration; his brief was that he wanted a Classic which held it’s own against brand new latest-shape Range Rovers in the sun-kissed exclusive resorts of the Mediterranean. We fulfilled his requirements.
