Mechanical Restorations

When new, a Rolls-Royce cost several times more than the median house of the era.  For their investment, owners were assured of a silky smooth, silent, reliable motorcar that could effortlessly travel long distances in great comfort.  

Unfortunately for many of these cars, the years, miles, lack of lubrication and unsympathetic mechanics have left the components of the cars needing significant attention.  Remember that all old cars don't "ride like buckboards" or break down at every turn.

The Vintage Garage has the skills, knowledge, tools and attention to detail required to make your vintage Rolls-Royce, Bentley or other fine early automobile drive like new. 

Specialty areas include:

  • Complete suspension and steering rebuilds
  • Transmission, prop shaft and rear-end rebuilding
  • Installation of overdrives to reduce engine RPM's
  • Brake rebuilding
  • Rewiring using original materials
  • Generator, starter and electrical rebuilds
  • Fuel tank and fuel system rebuilds

Our mechanical rebuilds always meet or exceed the stringent standards established by Rolls-Royce and Bentley Motors over decades of building some of the finest motorcars in the world.
