Ferrari Testarossa

The Ferrari Testarossa has been elevated in recent times from being remembered as the car in Miami Vice to a classic in its own right.

The car shown was in very good condition overall, but had suffered corrosion issues in the sill areas. We therefore carried out a localised repair to the sills avoiding the need for a complete repaint.

Mitchell Motors have the skill and depth of knowledge that ensures that the most effective method of working on a vehicle is undertaken at all times.

Classic Aston Martin DB2 front end repaint

The Aston Martin DB2 tends to suffer from bonnet fatigue, This was solved as part of the repaint we undertook.
Different from the typical British Racing Green, this off white really suits this Aston Martin

Ferrari 328 GTS in chiaro blue resprayed

This Ferrari 328 GTS was in for lower door and windscreen surround rust repair.

Whilst on the way through the owner decided that the car would benefit from an engine bay freshen up.

The amount of work involved in the above, although local in and of itself, meant that a full respray was the most economical way forward and this has just been completed.

Normally we would give you a picture of the whole car, but in this case am letting the paint talk for itself.

Lancia Flaminia Touring bodied Convertible total restoration

This is the second Lancia Flaminia Touring Convertible we have restored and we got the work through a  recommendation on the back of the work undertaken on another Flaminia Touring convertible. 

All metal and paint was undertaken by ourselves.

Particularly love the colour.

Bristol 407 Saloon repair after accident damage

Being side-swiped by a third-party in any car is traumatic, but when it is your treasured Bristol 407 it must seem doubly bad.

We often undertake insurance work, so should you have the misfortune to be involved in an accident whether at fault or otherwise please contact us. Our work is provably superb and competitively priced.

The Bristol pictured was repaired by making a new door skin as they are not now available, new side locker for spare wheel and numerous other parts were repaired. 

A partial respray was conducted so matching older paint was critical. Another oft forgotten skill for work such as this.

Bristol 405 Drophead body off restoration

Extensive bodywork restoration undertaken on this handsome and rare Bristol.

Mechanical work was in the hands of Spencer Lane-Jones Ltd.

This collaboration has resulted in a superb car that runs wonderfully and it is fair to say is probably in better condition than when it left the factory.
