About Us

Our Departments

Parts Department

We stock a wide range of parts and spares for vintage and classic vehicles.

Our dedicated Parts Department has extensive knowledge and are able to offer technical advice and information for parts and accessories.

If we do not have your required part in stock, we are frequently able to source or alternatively handcraft specific rare parts.


Specialising in pre-and post war Rolls-Royce and Bentley motor cars, our mechanical department has extensive knowledge of these beautiful machines. From a general service to a full engine rebuild, we are able to revive the heart of your classic motorcar.

Body shop

In the body shop we pride ourselves on our attention to detail. Without our methodical approach and preparation, we would not be able to prepare the panels, chassis, parts and vehicle bodies to the essential high standard required for the paint shop to apply their paint coats.

Spray Booth

Our paint shop technicians have earned themselves a reputation to be reckoned with; they have an impressive knowledge of both modern and traditional techniques and products.

We work with the preservation of historic vehicles, and where possible continue to apply traditional paints and materials, ensuring your vehicle is restored to a historically accurate colour and finish. We guarantee a perfect paint finish by using only the highest quality products.

Metal Fabrication

We provide metalwork repair, replacement panels and bespoke designs.

Our capable staff are experts in removing and repairing those dreaded corroded sections; by fabricating new panels and components using traditional methods and expertise to restore or repair your car to its original beauty, whilst maintaining original lines.

Machine Shop

We have a full in house machine shop with the expertise and abilities to white metal, line bore, and undertake general specialist machining. With parts for classic vehicles becoming increasingly harder to come by, the need to be able to manufacture parts has never been so important.

Coachwork dismantle and assembly department

The first and last stage of any repair or restoration project; our technicians have spent years learning the intricate workings of your vehicle and how they piece together. Ultimate care and precision is taken when dismantling and rebuilding each and every component of your pride and joy.

Clark and Carter Departments

What Our Clients Say

I have had many cars restored at Clark and Carter, from minor maintenance issues to a complete rebuild of a barn find project, all of which have had splendid results. My relationship with Steve has developed into a good friendship, and I most certainly entrust the team of highly skilled technicians to build cars to original and to my own specification. I can’t recommend them enough.
