Classic Car Restoration in Tunbridge Wells, Sevenoaks and Southern England

While we understand and value the pleasure of owning a classic car, we understand the perils and the pitfalls too. Nobody ever sees the weeks, months and sometimes years of hard work that go into a restoration. If you have a classic that’s in need of our top-to-bottom attention, we want to hear from you. Our company has the knowledge, experience and skills needed to restore any make or model from just about any generation.

Hillary’s Coachworks started out around 1810 making horse-drawn coaches and carriages. Today, we cover Tunbridge Wells and the surrounding Crowborough, East Grinstead, Sevenoaks and Tonbridge areas as a classic car restoration specialist.

We also cover Kent and Southern England.

The success of a classic car restoration project starts with an appraisal of the work required and looking at the job in detail. We can restore any make or model of classic, and our engineers have experience in body and mechanical rebuilding. Because our workshop has modern facilities to match the time-honoured workmanship we can produce, even the smallest finishing touches come as standard to make the job perfect.

Please take the time to read these testimonials from previous customers who have used us for restorations in the past.
