This clean green ’65 came in for a freshen up, cut and polish, new exterior chrome work etc. We tickled the Air Conditioning with a quick repair/re-gas and gave the old girl a dyno tune and she’s now ready for some summer cruising!
Straight from the Gosford Classic Car Museum this EH is about as honest as they get. With just 69000 original miles on her, just look how clean she is naked! Over the next few months this classic will receive a EFI V8 Conversion, 6 speed manual, A/C, Power Steering and a quick colour change.
The Rhino came in for a fresh set of mechanicals, and is ready to release back to the wild! This beautiful original South African GT spent a few months in the shop having a brand new engine (408 Stroker – whilst retaining a factory look) and running gear fitted, with a few additional touch ups and enhancements along the way
As part of the restorations process we don’t just buy reproduction copies of everything, in fact a lot of concours rebuilds we do require genuine part numbers, stampings etc to preserve the history of the vehicle. This is of course, not limited to just stamped/dated items and things like steering wheels (which are often poorly reproduced) require that extra bit of love, detail and attention that we take very seriously. If you need a part restored, no matter what the…
The “SilverBeast” is on it’s way back to Victoria after spending the last 12 months here at RPR. Arriving as a rolling shell the RP Racing team once again delivered with a stroked EFI 408, custom fuel system, RPR Chassis Connectors, custom 3″ exhaust, Wilwood brakes and coil-over front end.
“Cobra 257” (known as “the Cobra in UK”) this beast spent 10+ years in Britain before returning to our bronzen soils and placed in our care to ensure a first class restoration. Upgraded with all homologated race parts including a complete ‘race spec’ engine rebuild by RP Racing, chassis/strut bracing, correct ‘new old stock’ thermo fans etc. she made her first appearance at All Ford Day (September 2017).
This exquisite Electric Blue XY GT Ford Falcon you see here was delivered to us as a fire damaged country car that needed lots of love and affection. Like all the work we do here at RPR, no bolt was left untended as we rebuilt this slice of motoring history piece by piece, with either brand new or in-house reconditioned parts, including our very own, American made wiring harnesses. The results speak for themselves…..

The images you see here come from a one-owner vehicle that came to us for a ‘rust-bubble repair’. We did not expect to find this when we started working on the ‘rust-bubble’ in question.

To reduce the incidence of this happening to you, we offer Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections so you’re better educated on the vehicle you’re about to purchase. Our Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections includes visual chassis & structural checks, roadworthy mechanical…
