Decades of Classic Porsche Restorations

As one of the most trusted Porsche restoration specialists in the North West, we provide Porsche restoration services for a variety of models across Liverpool, Manchester, Wirral, Cheshire and throughout the wider North West area.

Celebrated by industry giants TopGear, Carmagazine and Autosport, our vast engineering skill set has enabled us to restore a variety of models back to their very best – from the classic Porsche 356 to the latest 911.

Restorations Of Classic Porsches including 356, 911, 964 & 993

Your classic Porsche will be in safe hands with our highly-trained restoration specialists. Our Porsche restoration experts have worked with classic vehicles from all eras of the marque including classic 911, 964s, 993, and 356 models.

Our huge experience in restoring Porsche 911 models, from long hood pre-1973 (SWB and F model) to Impact Bumper (G model) such as the early 911 3.0 Turbo (930) and 2.7 MFI Carrera (74-76), has given us insight into the value that originality and authenticity can bring to a restoration.

Recent racing activities with our 1965 2.0 SWB car, also gives us keen insight into these early machines. Our in-house build and development of a Solex Carburated 2.0 flat-six engine saw fantastic results, with front running pace and reliability.

Whilst classic air-cooled 911s remain timeless in their value, we also see many 964 and 993 models that are now of the age and value that full restoration is economically viable. We have also restored and detailed the very special models like RS and GT2, recently a full bare chassis rebuild of a factory-built Le Mans class-winning 993 GT2R. We understand that the closest attention to detail, authenticity and period-correct specifications is required to do these vehicles justice.

What is your Restoration Process?

Restoration covers a broad spectrum of work that can be required on a classic Porsche model. Not only the scope of the work, but budget parameters are important factors to consider at the starting point of any restoration work.

We can cater for all aspects of restoration on Classic Porsche models. Starting with simple cosmetic repairs, done to factory standards with the correct specification parts sourced from our Worldwide list of contacts – through to full bare chassis restorations, where every component is scrutinised and assessed for its condition and future use. An example of a process that we follow for a Porsche restoration is as follows:

Vehicle Assessment

  • Vehicle is assessed for condition, meticulously photographed for detail and a report compiled to outline the work that’s required, and a guide budget for you to consider.

Body Dismantlement and Repairs

  • Vehicle is dismantled. Each stage carefully documented with photographs and items collated/stored and marked for ongoing restoration.
  • Bare chassis is media blasted to expose any rust or damage requiring repair.
  • Chassis mounted onto a Body jig, and this ensures its structurally correct whilst the repairs are carried out.
  • Replacement panels/parts and bespoke fabrication, with skilled craftsmen hand welding and preparing the body shell.

Body Paint

  • Once all repairs complete, the chassis is sent for media blast/epoxy primed, or e-coating.
  • Chassis is prepared for its paint application, careful seam sealing to factory standards, before anti-corrosion protection and primed. Body panels are also prepared for paint.
  • Final stages of body colour applied, then it’s allowed to cure for a few weeks before it leaves the Bodyshop, ready for assembly.

Parts Installation and Survey

  • Whilst the chassis has been attended, all the bags of items removed have been assessed. New parts fitted, zinc plating, Chromate process and powder coating progresses so that sub-assemblies can be prepared and ready for installation onto the chassis at a future date.
  • The wiring loom sent away for specialist build. Retaining original plugs and connections, but re-wired with correct colour coded factory specification cables.
  • A survey will be compiled to ensure that all major components restored/repaired and ready for installation.
  • The build will then progress, starting with the wiring loom and essential ducts/pipes the foundations are laid for the rebuild.
  • Progressing to a rolling chassis state the next stage is the interior trim. Headlining, carpets, Instruments and numerous other Interior components are installed/fitted inside the car.
  • The engine and gearbox that’s already been overhauled is ready for installation into the chassis.

Final Touches

  • All of the Glass fitted, and final attentions focus on the trim and numerous seals and decorative items to complete the exterior.
  • Add Fuel, Oil and Power – the exciting day arrives for the restored machine to burst into life.
  • Numerous hours then progress with road testing and preparations to finalise the handover of your restored Porsche.

If you visit our workshop for cosmetic restoration, it can take at least up to a year for your Porsche to be restored. However, if your vehicle requires an extensive chassis restoration then it could take multiple years. There are various factors that can affect the speed of the restoration process, including the availability of Porsche parts, complications with the individual case etc.

No restoration process is the same, as each Porsche vehicle that visits us at our workshop is different to the next one. This means that we cannot offer fixed pricing for restorations; if you want more of an insight into what it could cost you, then contact us to find out more or visit us at our workshop in Hale.

We are able to source those hard-to-get car parts for classic Porsches due to our long list of suppliers that we have worked with over the years, sourced from all around the world. We also use our own car parts, which we store at our workshop, and we also sell on our online shop.
