Spencer Lane-Jones Ltd
The Company has been trading in Wiltshire for more than 30 years. It specializes in Thoroughbred and Classic cars and specifically, but not exclusively, on the Bristol marque. The Company offers a wide range of work from a straightforward service to a total restoration and anything in between. It has a large storage facility where owners cars can be stored securely and safely for short or extended periods. Owners are encouraged to visit to discuss work and maintain contact during the restoration process. In addition to routine tasks, recent projects have included making parts for the National Motor Museums Grand Prix Bugatti T35, an international concours-winning restoration on an early Touring-bodied Bristol 401 and the revival (after long-term storage) and conservation of two Vincent Black Shadow motorcycles.

The Company operates from within an easily accessible and fully equipped modern Workshop on the North edge of Warminster. Whilst trimming and painting are completed off site currently, all other restoration services are available in-house. In addition to routine work and whilst originality is highly valued, there are occasions when modern enhancements can improve safety. Issues such as the fitting of: seat belts, servo-assisted disc brakes, power steering, modern wiper systems, LED lighting can all be incorporated discretely, thus improving safety and the driving experience. All original parts are retained for refitting if required. Additionally, modern processes and materials can be incorporated into engineering work in order to improve performance, reliability and driveability. Whilst work is underway owners are kept regularly up to date with emails and photos charting progress. A full written description of tasks undertaken is provided at the end of the project for the owner�s records. No job is too small or too large and advice is free.
Most of the 10 mechanics have been with the Company for many years and consequently have amassed over 160 years of experience working on Edwardian, Vintage, Post Vintage, Thoroughbred and Classic cars. There are currently 2 apprentices helping to keep the staff average age at 38 years. Owners are encouraged to speak to the mechanic working on the car and of course visits to follow progress are most welcome.
