Welcome to Charles Russell Classic Cars. We own a full service workshop near the A303 and the Wiltshire/Hampshire border which is well known for classic cars in its own right (www.themotorgarage.co.uk). Over and above routine repair and restoration work we offer a complete car sourcing, brokerage, storage, transportation and restoration service. We have particular expertise with classic Jaguars but have a broad range of experience from humble and loveable Austins and Morrises to "superclassics" like Lagondas and Aston Martins.
We build relationships with our clients and their cars and can help you find, improve and maintain your dream classic.
When preparing our cars we have a bias towards modification and improvement. Many of our cars are sensitively improved and upgraded so that they can be used on a daily basis and compete with modern vehicles for reliability, usability and performance. This makes the world of classic motoring accessible to all. As modern cars increasingly fail to inspire the imagination or capture a spirit of individuality, we can offer a real alternative to people who believe a car should be more than a means of getting from A to B.
From electric power steering conversions, alternators, and improved braking and handling packages on the one hand, through to completely re-engineered vehicles with bespoke engine and powertrain options on the other, if you love the idea of a classic car but are wary of reliability and performance issues, we have the solution!
As well as sourcing cars for clients we normally have a small selection of high quality cars in stock or on consignment. Not all of these are on our website. We also have extensive trade contacts and can help you find exactly what you are looking for. Please do call us if you are looking for something special.
