A father and son are hoping people’s love for classic cars will put them in the fast lane to success – after pairing up for an exciting new venture.

Chris and Mike Withers, of Walsham-le-Willows, have formed GTB Restorations Ltd to restore classic Italian cars.

Working from a refurbished unit in Station Road, Elmswell, the business focuses on Ferrari and other Italian marques, offering bespoke service and restoration of cars from the 1950s-80s.

Michael, 35, said: “In recent years, classic cars have seen a real boom in popularity, both as investments and a hobby. People really love their classic cars, and we want to help make that easier.

“These cars can be quite valuable and deserve to have their DNA preserved so, we endeavour to maintain originality by repairing parts or sourcing new old stock items. We can also remanufacture old parts, if necessary.”

The father and son team have hands-on experience of restoring some of the world’s most expensive cars, as well as a background in the business, technical and engineering.

Chris, 64, said: “We can offer competitive prices and a service conducted by people with hands-on experience of restoring these cars.

“Moving these cars around can be a problem, with the weather we experience, so we even offer free collection and return in our own, covered transport in mainland UK.”

The service offered at GTB Restorations includes full engine, gearbox and rear axle rebuilds and repairs, with traditional methods used to restore bodywork, including partial and full resprays.
