Classic car restoration, specialising in 50s & 60s historic racing cars and classic vehicles

Riversdale Restoration is a small company, based in Dorset, carrying out classic automotive restorations of historic racing cars and classic vehicles. We pride ourselves in attention to detail and originality, and use many of the traditional engineering techniques employed in the original cars’ construction and, where possible, source original replacement components.

By working closely with a number of local specialist engineering companies we are able to offer complete one-stop classic automotive restoration services, including chassis repair/replacement, aluminium body repairs and re-panelling, gearbox and engine rebuilds, precision machining, fabrication, re-wiring, re-trimming, and alignment setup.

We offer vehicle transportation and both short and long-term storage is available.

We can also arrange MOTs, valuations and FIA applications for HTP Passports for historic racing cars.

We are extremely lucky to have an excellent rolling road facility nearby and can arrange for your vehicle to be rolling road tuned for historic racing or road use. Riversdale Restoration can carry out complete automotive restorations from ground up or running/stage restoration work.

From a dismantled car in boxes to a complete vehicle requiring road or race preparation, if you would like us to quote for a restoration or preparation work, please contact us to arrange a viewing of the vehicle.

We aim to deliver classic automotive restoration at affordable labour rates, providing our customers with a reliable, personal service.
