About Us

Clark & Carter - A traditional family run business

Clark and Carter's origins began when Steve opened a small recovery and repair business in the village of Silver End in 1982. After a few years, the business out grew the site at Bulldog works and moved to our current premises in the sleepy village of Cressing.

The buildings originally belonged to Steve's father in law who is the local farmer in the village.

Many of the buildings were used for livestock and storing the farms crops. However today the buildings are used for a very different purpose and have been turned into the heart and soul of Steve's and his families pride and joy.

After many years of carrying out accident recovery and repairs, Steve and his small team started to merge their talents with their love enthusiasm for classic vehicles; with particular interest in Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Porsche.

With Steve fronting the flourishing business and Heather running the office, it was only natural that when their sons Jamie and Stuart became of age to work that they followed in their parent's footsteps and joined the business.

The family run business has continued to grow mainly on word of mouth recommendations. Today the company has 7 workshops, a dedicated parts department and over 30 members of highly trained and experienced staff.

Our skills and expertise have also continued to develop, whilst consistently advancing our capabilities to produce the very finest examples of classic motoring history.


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.
