About Us

Southern Classics was formed in 1979 by enthusiasts for enthusiasts. The company was restructured in 1992 following a management buy-out.

We are located in Twickenham, just off the A316 Chertsey Road from the Whitton Road roundabout (Lexus/Currie Motors). We are about 15 minutes from Heathrow airport. Many of our clients are from overseas. Our nearest landmark is Twickenham rugby stadium – 2 miles away.

We pride ourselves on high quality classic car restoration and repairs. We are a dedicated and very skilled 8-man team that has worked closely together for many years and has helped to win us our hard-earned reputation. I have always said ‘You are only as good as your team’. Between us we have a combined total of 244 years of skilled experience in working on motor vehicles.

Some years ago, we took part in a 15-part TV series called ‘A Car is Reborn’, which was televised worldwide by Sky. The series featured us carrying out a total “ground-up” restoration of a series one Jaguar E-type roadster. This gave the viewer a really in-depth look at all the skilled work involved in this type of project. This was the very first time a project of this nature had ever been recorded in such detail and televised. On completion, the car was driven to the Jaguar factory at Browns Lane, where the original E-type test driver, Norman Dewis, drove and tested the car and declared it to be perfect.

Come and see for yourself, you will be amazed. Our very friendly, expert team is here to help you, no appointment necessary. We have an open-door policy – so come and meet the team.
