About Us

Since 1983, RH Classics has quietly built a reputation as one of the UK’s foremost classic car specialists.  Founded by Barry Hodson, initially servicing and repairing what were back then old sports cars you’d see everyday.  In the intervening years we’ve bought, sold, serviced, restored and raced everything from regular classics to significant competition cars.

We’re proud of the reputation we’ve built and our family focused team still operates from the same expanded site today.  RH Classics now carries the initials of Barry’s son Richard, who leads the business with a further generation waiting in the wings.

We are acknowledged specialists in the restoration, maintenance and sale of the following marques:

Jaguar, Aston Martin, Porsche, BMW, Austin Healey, Ferrari, Rolls Royce, Alvis, MG & Triumph

Our expertise also brings an increasing number of modern-era high performance cars also come into our care too.  Our small team comprises engineers and craftsmen who carry out much of our work on site and in-house.  We control the quality of our work; bespoke panel making, mechanical rebuilds, restorations to concours-winning standards; even just a service!

It’s no coincidence that 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.  With our expertise and connections worldwide, we can assist with the sale of your current car, or help source your next.

A rural base, small team and no-nonsense approach equates to low overheads compared to some higher profile specialists.  We always offer high quality and value for money.

A recent addition to our services is discrete 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 can provide covered transportation, working with our long established partner.

We’re proud to have been at the forefront of the old car movement pretty much since it began.  While others come and go, we continue to grow because our business is built on the values of honesty and integrity.  That means we’ll always deliver exceptional workmanship at a fair price, just like Barry did all those years ago.
