Classic Car Services

Full Restorations

The classic Volkswagen has always been the main focus of 181 Classic motors, from the VW beetle to the VW campervan and many in between. We have restored many VWs over the years , but the main work has been on the VW campers. From complete wrecks, to import conversions, all leave the door to the customer’s satisfaction.
Many customers are still coming back for regular servicing to help maintain reliability. Whether you require a single repair or an entire Volkswagen restoration, we have the skill and the enthusiasm to undertake all types of restorative works.

Is your vehicle is over 40 years old? You may now be exempt from having an MOT (registration required & exemptions apply) As the registered keeper you remain responsible for keeping your vehicle in a safe, roadworthy condition and of course you will most likely wish to do so!  You do have the option to continue to MOT but what if you had another option? We believe that it just isn’t a case of one size fits all and it’s quite possible that your pride & joy may not fit the rigid criteria of a modern MOT. Here at 181 Classic Motors we do understand your need for peace of mind and we have the extensive knowledge & experience of the mechanics unique to your classic.
