Classic Car Specialist

Cornwall near Truro

Experience and Knowledge

Perranwell Garage is a specialist in Morgan cars, but we also work extensively on a broad spectrum of other classic cars.

Classic car owners will understand the importance of having a specialist classic car garage to maintain their cars. We have accrued over 20 years experience repairing, restoring and maintaining classic cars, including E-type Jaguars, Mercedes SL’s, TVR’s and even more modest, but no less enjoyable Fiat 500’s and Mini Coopers. The list of makes and models we have worked with is extensive.


Classic Car Servicing and Maintenance

Classic cars often need specialist skills and understanding, both with regular maintenance and in resolving issues that can frustrate owners and compromise their enjoyment of driving their pride and joy.

We love working with classic cars and will take the time to talk with their owners to understand what their needs are and where necessary work with them closely to identify and resolve problems if and when they arise. We take great pride in getting classic cars to run and handle properly and provide owners with the best driving experience. On a number of occasions customers have commented to us that their cars are running better than ever following work we have done.


Access to Specialist Skills

We have extensive workshop facilities including three ramps and full diagnostic facilities . Whilst our technicians have considerable classic car expertise and resource available on site, we will if required out source specialist tasks, especially with vehicle restoration.  We have a close working relationship with a range of specialist craftspeople who we can call upon if required to work with us in areas like :

Upholstery & Leather


Panel Fabrication




Gearbox Restoration


Classic Car Restoration

We carry out complete classic car restorations. We like to work closely with the owners during the process keeping them updated on progress and should any issues arise once work has commenced, agreeing as we go along how they want us to proceed.

Sometimes owners only want a partial restoration, with specific focus on a particular area eg interior re-trim, engine overall. Again we are happy to discuss your needs and can accommodate most requirements.

One of the most recent projects we undertook was the complete restoration of a 1960 Mini, this was featured in an article in Classic Car Magazine in their May edition. A image from the intro to the article is shown below, click on the image to enlarge.

The 1960 Mini came to us as bare bodyshell with just the rear wheels attached and the rest of the car in boxes. We spent a year rebuilding it, in what became literally a nut and bolt restoration with considerable effort made to restore the car back to its original specification. If you would like to know more give us a call.

Adjacent are some before and after images of other recent projects we have worked on, including a Porsche 911 Targa, Morgan Roadster and an MGB GT. We are about to start work on the restoration of a Morris Minor Traveller, if you would like to know more give us a call on 01872 863037.

Feedback from some of our customers…

No job too difficult or small. If it is possible Perranwell Garage will find the problem and fix it, even if it requires fabricating a part. Having prepared and maintained two historic rally cars for me and serviced various classics, I have no hesitation in recommending their services and do so regularly.

The enthusiasm for and detailed knowledge of all makes and models of classic cars is outstanding. Anthony and his team always go out of their way to ensure you are never off the road for long. They always explain any problems with the cars and offer all solutions with guidance on the best course to take. Our three classics are well looked after and have never run so well ! I cannot speak highly enough of their abilities, work ethic and friendliness. Good old fashioned customer service is alive and well.

Bought my car from Perranwell 4 years ago and they’ve looked after it for me since. Reasonable charges, always friendly and efficient, this is the place to go with your Morgan or other classic to be served with skill, experience and enthusiasm. And if you’re not sure whether a Morgan is for you, they hire them out as well (which is how we got the bug!)

Robert N

This is an excellent garage, where the knowledge and service is first rate. They maintain all my cars, modern and old and will also take the trouble to source the best value parts. This has saved me a considerable amount of money on a number of occasions. They always do the the job properly and take great pride in their work.
