57 Chevy

Who doesn’t love the lines of a 57? We recently had the pleasure of fabricating a custom air cleaner housing for this absolute beast as there was limited bonnet room to fit a standard shaped air cleaner. We also performed some mechanical and cosmetic services on her in preparation for her new owners

HQ GTS Monaro

This gorgeous, one owner HQ GTS Monaro was sent to us for a secret restoration for a 70th birthday surprise! The owner had no idea his pride and joy was being restored and was blown away with the level of detail we had put into it. Last registered in 1993 with just under 73000 original miles on it, she underwent a complete transformation in just under 12 months. She’s now re-registered and ready to cruise the streets of Adelaide once…

Yellow XY GT Loom Replcement

Shipped in from Victoria this very tidy yellow GT came in for some needed wiring love after a lengthy stay at an Auto Electrician. With a melted dash and a lot of chopping and splicing revealed, it was decided to completely replace the vehicle wiring. We stripped her of all main and sub-looms and replaced them with our own reproduction looms. Whilst here we also fixed up a few other minor issues and completely restored her steering wheel. It amazes…

Gold XT GT Revival

After spending the last six years undergoing a colour change back to it’s original GT Gold (prior to the new owner purchasing her, she’d been changed to red), she was delivered to us in a rather sad state of disrepair. We proceeded to strip her again, then repaired & re-painted the engine bay and engine bay accessories. The outside was detailed further with complete panel re-fitting & re-gapping, the missing blackouts & stripes added, mouldings fitted and a full cut…

S-Series Valiant

Today we say goodbye to this gorgeous Blue S-Series Val! When she arrived she was showing pretty obvious signs of old age, so the owner decided while she was here it was time for a new colour scheme and a new interior. Everything was given some RPR love and today she leaves looking ready for some summer cruising!

1962 Series-1 Jaguar E-Type

Today this absolutely stunning 1962 Series-1 E-Type Jaguar completes her miracle transformation, from the rusty, previously ‘munted’ shell that had been hand-balled to us four years ago to the pristine sample you see here (make sure you check out the ‘before’ photo!) Finished in Opalescent Bronze and Bright Red trim she is the 370th Right Hand Drive E-Type produced. This model has relatively few aftermarket parts available so a lot of the parts were restored back to their original condition.…

Bronze Wine XY GT Ford Falcon

If you haven’t been following the story of this stunning Bronze Wine GT on our Facebook page I seriously urge you to like our page and have a read, it is a restoration story that has to be seen to be believed. Delivered to us after a full body restoration and paint job by a premium workshop here in Adelaide, we quickly unearthed the horrid truth behind ‘the work’ that had been done to her. We saw ford cars in…

EH Panel Van LS Conversion

This EH Panel Van came straight from the Gosford museum, family owned from new with a genuine 69,000 miles on her. With a dream of her becoming a ‘beach cruiser’ the owner commissioned us to re-paint and rebuild her with the addition of a newer gen V8 heart. We began with some minor bodywork, fresh paint and a custom LS install which by all accounts should have been a simple fit. As with many after-market bolt-in kits we’ve used before,…
