Locate & Retrieve

Cotswold Classic Car Restorations have built up a wide network of contacts who specialise in tracking down rare cars, so whether you are looking to purchase an already restored classic, or looking for a new restoration project for yourself, just let us know.

Should the car be sourced outside the UK we are able to sort out all shipping and freight issues including various import duties and taxes. Once the vehicle is here we can help you with registering the vehicle in this country and then, if any are required, the various modifications needed to make the vehicle road legal.

Left Hand / Right Hand Drive

From time to time we are asked to convert cars from left hand drive to right hand drive or for our customers on the continent, from right hand drive to left hand drive. We are able to perform this task even if the vehicle was never produced in this form by remanufacturing dashboards, wiring harnesses and steering and pedal systems to accommodate the conversion

So whether you are looking for a ready to drive modern classic or a project that you can build as your own knowing exactly how the car was put together incorporating your own stamp we can find the right car for you. We can advise on the likely pitfalls you may encounter on any given restoration project or what aspects should have special attention paid to when buying a car that is ready for the open road.
