Rebuild and Restoration Service
At Classic Car Engines we like to give a personal service and involve our customers in the process if they so wish.
Our usual procedure is to strip down an engine, then invite the customer to see the condition, and decide together what should be done. We will not compromise on quality, but neither will we insist on unnecesary proceedures. If it is not convenient for a customer to visit at this stage we can send photographs to illustrate any areas of choice.
Our standard rebuild usually includes the following:
A deposit of £1,000 payable on commencement for strip down, once we know what we have we then ask for a stage payment, with the remainder due on completion.
We can offer a collection and delivery service at 60p per mile. The restored engine will be on a stand - cost £50 which will be refunded on return.
We can also restore carburettors at additional cost, and arrange for gearboxes and differentials to be restored by associated specialists.
We can only handle a limited number of engines each year as Graham assembles each engine personally. It is therefore advisable to book your slot.
It is with regret that we can no longer offer the industry standard warranty of 12 months or 12,000 miles. The castings are now 40-60 years old, and despite pressure testing and found sound one day, they can fail the next. Threads can appear in good condition, then fail when tightened. We have decided that in order to obtain the best results possible, all 3.4 and 3.8 blocks will in future be linered. Whilst we are happy to guarantee our work, we can no longer accept responsibility for failure of original parts.
Please call Graham to discuss further details or other engines. (+44) 01684 311737
Ready for the head.
