Classic Car Specialists – Southern Classics
Based in Twickenham, Southern Classics have been restoring and repairing vehicles for classic car enthusiasts and investors for over 35 years. These have included the 17th and 53rd Open Top Jaguar E-type and many Jaguar XK and Saloon Models. They are also part restoring an Aston Martin DB2/4, DB4 and DB6.
No job too big, no restoration too complex, Southern Classics are masters of their craft. In fact they have recently completed a comprehensive restoration of a stunning 1964 Aston Martin DB5 – a car which features in our Chubb Insurance Concours d’Elégance. Having witnessed their work first hand, we are pleased to show you some incredible pictures of this car’s restoration process.
Tasked with a total restoration including returning the car to its original colour – Silver Birch, Southern Classics were instructed to produce the best DB5 in the world. Our matrix below highlights the attention to detail and painstaking effort that goes into a restoration of the highest quality.
