EVENT PREPARATION, DRIVER TUITION AND SUPPORT

A key contributor to a Car's value and pedigree can be it's competition credentials. Cars with motorsport history and eligibility to compete at prestigious events often attract a healthy premium.
Therefore, investment in professional preparation for such events often pays dividends, not to mention the benefit of enjoyable, reliable and low-stress 'arrive and drive' style motorsport competition.
FABRICATION, BODYWORK & ENGINEERING
At Historic & Fine, we have a network of craftsmen who have been Fabricating bespoke parts and fixings at the very highest levels of craftsmanship for decades.
- Bespoke Fabrication for any reparation or improvement
- Coachwork and Upholstery
It is unusual to find a Historic Car which hasn't had some sort of Fabrication carried out at some point. This is all part and parcel of continued use and maintenance of a car.
However in order to retain all-important pedigree, character and authenticity, it is vital for such works to be carried out sympathetically and to the highest standard.
Please contact us with any questions or requirements.

From high-end sales rooms through to specialist Auction houses, we have a unique network from which we can acquire clients' cars from or offer them into.

Answers to All Your Enquiries
WHY USE HISTORIC AND FINE?
Historic & Fine's services help take time and uncertainty out of running a Classic Car. We take care of the administrative side of ownership, which can be timing consuming and alien for many owners. We can also provide candid and impartial advise or second opinions.
Our services provide you with peace of mind, an expert opinion, and access to a network of reputable professionals to ensure that your car gets the time and treatment it deserves.
Furthermore, with Classic Car prices consistently outperforming other asset classes, restoring and enhancing Classic Cars is increasingly becoming a viable investment.
DO I HAVE TO USE YOUR SERVICES PROVIDERS?
If you are new to the Classic Car world, or would like our input on which specialists might suit you best, we'll be happy to guide you.
However, we understand that in many cases you have trusted, experienced and skilled experts looking after your car already.
If you wish to remain with your trusted engineer, use an upholsterer recommended by a friend, or use the storage facility closest to your house, we are more then happy for you to do so.
We manage your affairs with, and work alongside, whichever Service Providers you choose.
DO HISTORIC AND FINE RECEIVE COMMISSION FROM SERVICE PROVIDERS?
No. As we are independent, it would be a conflict of interest to receive commissions from Service Providers.
Instead, we work on a fee based system. This prevents conflicts, protects our integrity, and provides as much transparency as possible.
Our Customers know the cost of our service before, rather than after. Our Membership package provides you with several core services for one price, so there is complete transparency!
