Heritage Classics of Teesside is a family business established by John Collins to provide a very comprehensive restoration service for all makes of vintage and classic cars.
John spent four years training as a City and Guilds qualified vehicle body builder, coach and paint sprayer.
After completing his apprenticeship building and repairing aluminium and fiberglass .P.S.V. vehicles, a deep-rooted interest in classic and vintage cars drew him to work building and restoring Triumph TR Sports cars for a very well respected TR dealer.
Cars built here went on to win major concours awards all over the country.
From this an opportunity arose to further his skills working for a vintage car specialist building one off car bodies and restoring existing ash framed bodies.
These were panelled in aluminium, each piece ‘wheeled-up’ by hand using traditional techniques. John also gained experience restoring and remaking complete leather interiors, making new hoods, tonneau covers and trimming fabric bodies.
Fulfilling a life-long ambition, John went on to set up his own classic car restoration business.
This allows him to provide a one to one personal service to the very highest of standards at very competitive prices.
More than fifteen years experience working and restoring classic and vintage cars ensures that you can entrust your restorations work with confidence at Heritage Classics of Teesside.
