began making parts
The story begins with one man and his passion for classic cars starting with a 1936 Riley Merlin. Will Fiennes purchased the car whilst still a student at Oxford in the mid-sixties and maintained it himself. This led him to join the Riley Register and, with his engineering aptitude, he soon became their “spares man” and was making a small income to supplement his academic life.
I am now approaching my 50th year with the business having joined the then parent company back in 1971 as an apprentice in Mechanical and General Engineering. Now, in 2020, with a highly skilled team, we provide our customers with full engine reconditioning services with experience ranging from automobiles to aviation and industrial engines.
