Our showroom and workshop facilities showcase an intricate attention-to-detail and a commitment to craftsmanship.

All JD Classics work, from full engine rebuilds to nut-and-bolt restorations, is carried out in a world-class, 65,000 sq/ft facility in Chelmsford, an hour outside London. The quality of restoration work carried out by JD Classics has been acknowledged as among the best in the world, with multiple award wins at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, Cartier Style et Luxe and Salon Privé.

The Competition Department, responsible for all of JD Classics’s historic motorsport activity, is one of the most successful outfits in the sport. Its ex-Fangio C-type has won back-to-back races at Monaco Historique, its Lister Costin won every single round of the Stirling Moss Trophy in 2017 and its E-type Lightweight won two consecutive RAC TT Celebration races at Goodwood Revival.
