 Our First time at the Goodwood Revival

Bill Rawles Classic cars has decided to have a stand at the Goodwood Revival. Goodwood Revival 2017 is the first time that Bill and his team have exhibited at this popular annual event. Our stand numbers are 163/164 and we are situated in the area known as “over the road”

Don’t be fooled into thinking that all the fun takes place within the Motor Circuit. Cross the bridge taking you – literally – Over the Road and you open the door to a whole world of jollity – we are situated near to the Doom bar tent (if you need a landmark to head for!)

Austin Healey 100S Continuation

Austin Healey 100 S remanufactured to factory spec track day at Goodwood

Come and see our detailed remanufactured Austin Healey 100S built along side an original car to authenticate the original build specification of these truly special cars.

In 1954, Lance Macklin raced a modified Austin Healey 100 with a special Westlake designed head in Sebring, Florida. His success in this race led to a production run of 50 similar cars. These cars were designated “100 Sebring” and or “100S”.  It is thought that the whereabouts of only about 35 of the original 50 cars built is known today. We think that our recreations, built at Bill Rawles Classic Cars are the next best thing to the real deal.
