Classic Car Restoration & Maintenance

Bill Rawles Classic Cars

Where it all began

Born from a love of classic cars

Bill Rawles started his first classic car restoration business over 30 years ago from his workshop in the south of England, specialising in Austin-Healeys and establishing the Rawles family name and reputation around the world.

Bill sold his first business in 2007 to set up Bill Rawles Classic Cars Ltd, a family venture with sons Charlie and Jack, specialising in all makes of classic car. With Bill firmly at the helm with his wealth of experience and knowledge, Bill Rawles Classic Cars has grown to cover all aspects of classic car restoration, maintenance and sales with quality control and attention to detail of the upmost importance. Bill has been involved in historic motorsport for over 20 years and has campaigned his Austin-Healey 3000 to many podium places. Race and rally preparation, event support and transportation are a growing part of our business.

About

Classic Car Services

We offer a full restoration service on all types of classic car, specialising in Austin-Healey.

Experts in classic car servicing

Servicing your car is an integral part of maintenance and reliability, and as a standard we will check all the critical safety factors such as chassis, brakes, tyres, fluid levels and electronics are working as they should, before another year of happy motoring. Whilst an MOT is not mandatory for some classic cars, our safety check should not be a substitute. We recommend testing the car annually and some insurance companies may require a valid MOT, which we can also provide if desired/required.

Choose an option to suit your needs, from a levels service to a full service or a pre-MOT inspection and an MOT.

Motorsport

Race proven performance, reliably first

With over 30 years of Austin-Healey competition experience, our race Healeys are built to perform, but, more importantly, to finish. From sprint racing to the Spa 6 Hours, we have tried, tested and developed components so you don't have to.

Goodwood 81MM

How was the @goodwoodmotorcircuit 81st Members’ Meet a week ago! 

You’ve seen the onboard footage but Just reliving the moment, when Jack Rawles achieved 3rd Place in the Peter Collins Trophy. The relief, joy and happiness is summed up in this 1 minute 20 second snapshot.

Jaguar MK2, the forgotten Jaguar?

Often, the E-types and XK series get a lot of attention but the MK1/2 saloons are often overlooked... and wrongly so as they make for a fantastic sporty 60's touring car. Not many cars are as comfortable to go long distance in and offer good value for money in the classic market.

Here we have the ultimate MK2, '3.8 MOD' 3.8 litre, manual overdrive back in for an annual service. Over the years, we have completed a lot of work on this car from a full bare metal repaint, engine & gearbox rebuild and annual maintenance. It's absolutely lovely.
