They treat you as a client for the long term which is somewhat unusual in certain corners of the motor industry!
I bought my third 911 from James at Classic and Sportscar Centre Malton and, nearly two years on, can say that it was (and still is) a good experience. . . . . . .
The car was as advertised. When I travelled to Yorkshire to test drive and inspect the car, I found that it fitted very accurately the description I had been given in my discussions with James over the phone.
In particular, the body work and engine set up fit the bill and was/is in excellent shape - the car is a very original and unmodified 1969 911T.
As part of our deal, a lot of refresher work (mostly body/paintwork - there was effectively no rust on the body) was agreed and here Tim and the team in the workshop excelled themselves. The car had a windows out respray together with a lot of other body recommissioning work (engine, carbs, gearbox all fine - just needed a service). The quality of the work was high and I’m very comfortable saying that having owned and driven the car for nearly two years now. I’ve had no problems whatsoever other than the usual classic car niggles that get picked up in the annual services.
As a matching numbers 1960’s Porsche with a complete original interior, Tim and his team did an excellent job in bringing the body work up to show state but without affecting the overall effect of the car in visual terms.
In terms of performance it is a reliable and well running car. Leaving British weather and mileage use to one side, this car could be driven everyday.
I have it serviced near where I live by a classic Porsche specialist whose view is that the recommissioning work was excellent. It’s a very special car.
Finally, the grubby subject of money. I found James easy and straight to deal with and fair into the bargain. I would not be concerned about engaging Classic to work on any car of mine from a commercial perspective. They treat you as a client for the long term which is somewhat unusual in certain corners of the motor industry!
