RH Classics are specialists in the restoration, maintenance, sale and sourcing of the top marques including:
Jaguar, Aston Martin, Porsche, BMW, Austin Healey, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Alvis, MG and Triumph.
Established by Barry Hodson, servicing and repairing what were back then just everyday cars. In the intervening years we’ve bought, sold, serviced and restored everything from regular classics to significant competition cars.
The RH team team comprises proper, old school engineers and craftsmen and we carry out much of our work in-house. Our range of services includes bespoke panel making, mechanical rebuilds, restorations to concours-winning standards; or even just an oil change.
It’s no coincidence we maintain some of the world’s most desirable cars – we just don’t make a fuss about it. Customers place their trust in us because we treat each car with the same level of care as if it were our own. Our rural base, small team and straightforward approach ensures we deliver high quality work and exceptional value.
With our expertise and knowledge, we can assist you with the sale of your current car, or help source your next. We have contacts worldwide and can help locate rare and significant cars, both on or ‘off market’. We provide a discrete, professional service, from start to finish, backed up by a pricing structure that means you won’t pay more than you need to.
We also offer secure, fully insured car storage at our dedicated facility located close by. We’ve tailored a bespoke programme to keep your car on the button for when you’re ready to drive it. We provide covered transportation nationally, working with our trusted, long term partner.
Our business is built on the values of honesty and integrity, just as it was all those years ago. We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built and our family focused team still operates from the same expanded site today. RH Classics carries the initials of Barry’s son Richard, with a further generation waiting in the wings.

The team at RH Classics did an amazing job on my E type. I never dreamt that it would end up in the motoring press when it was advertised for sale, let alone with the caption “when only the best will do”. The quality of RH Classics work really is second to none.
I was introduced to RH Classics at the Silverstone Classic race meeting and having seen how well they had restored two Lotus 6 race cars I decided to use them to maintain my Caterham 7. They have undertaken a number of jobs, from basic servicing through to restoration and upgrades; all done to a very high standard and providing excellent value for money. I would happily recommend RH Classics.
I’ve been a customer of RH Classics for 15 years, initially looked after by Barry, who rebuilt my 3.4 litre Mk 1 Jaguar. Following the rebuild, the oil pump failed due to a manufacturing defect and Barry took the car back and rebuilt the engine without question. This was my first experience of working with RH; since then, Rich has immaculately looked after all my cars, Aston’s to 911’s, E Types, Mk 1,2 and 7 Jaguar’s and more recently a pair of Cobra’s. RH’s work ethic, integrity and attention to detail is just what you’d hope for (but rarely see) in an old car specialist. I can’t recommend them highly enough.
