There are hundreds of shops that claim they can rebuild a pre-war
Rolls-Royce or Bentley engine. There are only a handful with the mix of knowledge, experience, tooling and attention
to detail to do the job right. For more than 40 years, The Vintage Garage
has been a member of this exclusive group of specialists.
While there is a temptation to use a local race shop or farm the
job out to a mechanic with experience in other engines, the skills do not always apply. And there are no shortcuts and
no room for error when it comes to the powerplant.
The Vintage Garage can do complete, turnkey engine restorations. But we also welcome the opportunity to work
with owners who would like to be involved in the project themselves. We are glad to tackle the technical aspects of
the rebuild while helping an owner/enthusiast to have fun (and save money!) by working on other areas of the rebuild
Engine services include:
- Removal from
car, dismantling and diagnosis
- Rebuilding of heads, blocks, crankshafts and
other major components
- Line boring of babbited bearings
- Fitting of
pistons and rods including fitting postwar rods to prewar small HP engines
of all engine ancillaries
- Carburettor rebuilding
- Tappet, cam,
rocker and valve rebuilding
Contact us to discuss your project. We are glad to help you understand the process
and costs involved.
In addition, when you contact us about rebuilding your engine, we'll gladly share
the names and phone numbers of other Rolls-Royce and Bentley specialists who share our skills and commitment to excellence.
Rebuilding an engine is no small investment and we encourage our clients to talk to several competent shops. We
look forward to chatting!
