Classic Car Restorations

If you require a classic car restoration please contact us for a meeting with our owner Alex Hardisty to discuss your project.

Alex gained his passion for classic cars as a small boy whilst sat watching his father in his garage in Goostrey.

As a second generation car repairer and enthusiast, it’s not blood in his veins it’s oil!

Your vehicle will be loved by us as we return it to its original condition or better with an unrivaled attention to detail. Too many restoration projects do not respect the integrity & originality. We guarantee to do that.

We will discuss in detail your requirements, make recommendations and talk you through the process we will go through to lovingly restore your vehicle. Full quotation and a phased repair process is available to suit all budgets.

Call our switchboard on 01606 331131 or contact our estimating engineers direct on opt 2 for advice.

Services we offer include –

Mechanical rebuild

We offer a full rebuild capability to get your vehicle back on the road. This includes engine, gearbox, brakes and axle rebuilds.
Fault finding and rectification are a speciality of New Platt Motors. We can get your vehicle running.

Power steering upgrade

We can retro fit a powered steering option to make life easier and enhance your driving pleasure on today’s roads.


The older the vehicle the more loving it needs. Regular maintenance and servicing is key to keeping you on the road and preventing a major issue.

Our master technicians will inspect and advise any work which is required and regular inspections are advisable.


We can carry out a full or partial restoration of your vehicle. Please contact us to discuss and advise.
We can also discuss a phased plan of essential work to suit your budget at the time.

Bodywork repair

We can repair steel or aluminium bodies to preserve the integrity of the vehicle. Accident/accidental damage can be repaired to its former glory.
Rust removal and the fabrication of new panels if required can be discussed to ensure the longevity of your vehicle. No job is too big or small

Respraying of bodywork

We can match any vehicle and even provide a custom formulation if required to your specific colour. Age and weathering often effects the colour and we can also bring old paint work back to its best with our careful restoration of the original finish.

On site we have two spray booths in our modern facility to house your vehicle while it is repainted. We use either solvent or 2 pack as required.
We carry out full repaints or areas required.

Either a refinish or strip back to bare metal might be required but we will always advise on the best course of action for your specific project

Shot blasting

This can be carried out on site to make sure that we have a good base to start from and see what actually needs doing. Like building a house the foundation to a good restoration project is the base we start from.

A restoration nightmare is when a restored vehicle rots from the inside out.


Welding and fabrication

Welding repairs are carried out on site on either steel or aluminium as required.

Panels fabrication can also be arranged if any parts are beyond restoration.

Rust proofing

Our rust proofing service will help to keep your vehicle protected. We use market leading products to ensure the longevity of your vehicle/repairs. Please call to discuss options. We are always happy to advise.


This service can be used if we cannot save your original trim or it has deteriorated so badly it is detracting from the look of the vehicle.
