Rhino GT Rebuild

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

We Restore Parts Too!

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…

‘Shed Resto’ XR Falcon Tidy Up

This crisp white XR Falcon came through the workshop for a bit of tweaking to finish off what was a very neat ‘in the shed’ restoration. It’s quite common for us to get projects like this come through the workshop, whereby the owner wants those last few details done that they possibly can’t do at home or don’t have the tools to complete. If you’ve got an ‘almost finished’ project you need the final details ticked off (final assembly/ dyno…

Electric Blue XY GT

This exquisite Electric Blue XY GT Ford Falcon you see here was delivered to us as a 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 wiring harnesses. The results speak for themselves…..

Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections

Our Pre-Purchase Vehicle Inspections includes visual chassis & structural checks, roadworthy mechanical…
