Upgrades & Enhancements

Improve your Austin-Healey with period enhancements and uprated parts. Before you modify your Healey with bolt-on modern gizmos, speak to the experts to discuss your requirements.

Our experienced team of engineers have been trained to produce only the highest quality cars. During a restoration, it is important to us to reuse, where possible, original parts or remanufactured replacements. Our team will recognise where and when a repair is necessary and full documentation of your restoration will be detailed through photos and description of every hour spent.

Having raced Healeys throughout Europe for the past 20 years, Bill has developed his cars to be reliable as well as fast, with racing technology filtering down into the road cars. It must be in the blood as you may also see sons Charlie & Jack enjoying success behind the wheel campaigning BRCC-prepared cars.


Machining and Fabrication

Traditionally trained, Bill started his working life as a press tool maker, spending many hours machining on mills and turning on lathes. We are proud to continue the tradition with a foundation of skilled engineers. Our machine and fabrication shop has everything needed to create those one-off pieces you’re struggling to have made. Services also include sheet metal work such as aluminium fuel tanks, repairs or bespoke panels in aluminium or steel.

Body work & Paint

Preparation for paint is a meticulous and time-consuming process but the result will stand the test of time. Bill Rawles Classic Cars uses modern materials and technology combined with traditional techniques to prepare your vehicle for paint. The painting process includes preparation of panels, primer, flat back ready for a coat of DP40 epoxy primer and top coat paint. Paintwork is then flatted & polished to finish.
