Classics

Over the 23 years I've been restoring classics I decided to show a few on here as we're all Car Lover's.

There's a lot I don't have, but then later on I started taking a lot more pictures. I guess smartphones have made things a little easier.

First up a S1 e type roadster I did whilst in N.ireland about 18 months ago.

And yes it is the same car.

A few more Aston's, spent 18 years of my life working on them.

This V8 is a Dbs v8 race car converted to Webbers from an mfi injection system. I put a full cage in etc.

This one had a Full restoration. Then sold.Screenshot_20180613-234729.jpg

Only Did the Body on the next one. It's actually the Car Jeremy wasn't allowed to drive on Top gear many moons ago. I had to convert a lot of things back to it's original spec, including narrowing the no. Plate enclosure and fitting the correct corvette read lights. As it had a later rear panel fitted at some point. It's a prototype car for the twin supercharged Vantage.Screenshot_20180613-235113.jpg
Another Race car, originally had the orange stripe through the bonnet.Screenshot_20180613-234532.jpg

Db4 Vantage full body off restoration.Screenshot_20180613-234821.jpg
Ended up in Japan, sold at auction for £230k about a year before it all went mad! Be about £6-700k now! Maybe more.

Another V8 Race car we built.
Pretty much spaceframed using the original chassis rails.

Phenomenal post Mark!!!

Absolutely fantastic mate, and yes of course I'd love to see more. The 330 and DB4 are absolutely stunning. What a glorious way to spend your time. You must have made a penny or two out of it over the years I'd expect.

Brilliant work.

Unfortunately it always been for other people. But it's kept my family clothed and fed I suppose and I enjoy it so I Can't complain.

I Did my own thing for about 18 months a couple of years ago but long jobs and 6 mouths to feed was rather difficult. Kind of wish we hadn't given it up though.

If your on Facebook search Lloyd classic and retro. Haven't closed the page up as of yet.

One of the last jobs I did for myself.
Put new floors and inner sills in and a few other repairs.
