Classic Car Restoration Maidstone

Repairs, Restoration & Vehicle Modifications in Kent

Dave Barnett Motors Ltd have been servicing, repairing, rebuilding and restoring classic cars for more than 40 years. With a wealth of experience, and being classic car enthusiasts, no one is better placed to restore your car to its former glory. We want to make your restoration dream come true at a price you can afford.

Our garage in Maidstone, Kent is fully equipped and able to deal with any restoration project whatever the current condition of your vehicle.  Our services include engine rebuilds, mechanical restoration and rally car preparation.

We also carry out classic car repairs and servicing and all other mechanical modifications.



Rally Car Preparation Maidstone

We are skilled and experienced in all aspects of race car preparation, restoration and complete rebuilds ready for actual racing in the UK.

Some of our previous rally car restorations that are racing in 2018 include Ford Escorts Mk 1 and Mk II, a Vauxhall Nova and Vauxhall Corsa.


Assessing a Classic Car Restoration Project

Before starting any restoration project we will speak at length with the owner to establish their requirements and what they expect once their classic car is fully restored. We will also need to know the available budget and timescale in which the work needs to be finished.

Once we have this information we will assess the vehicle, its current condition, an approximate cost for the work and estimated completion date.

It's important that we have a clear understanding of your expectations and we can advise you on how best to proceed while keeping within your budget. Wherever possible we will suggest money saving alternatives, and as with all car repairs and replacement parts we supply, you only ever pay the cost price +VAT charged by the suppliers.

Together we can agree on the way forward to your classic car restoration.

See our classic car restoration blog for examples of recent projects we have undertaken involving a Mk 1 Ford Escort, Ford RS Cosworth and a VW Golf
