About Us

My interest in cars started as far back as I can remember and like most similar minded young men of the time the mechanical skills started when working under the bonnet of the family car with my father. Clearly these early days of car repair were well before the modern times of connecting a computer to the car to establish what was wrong with it. A time of real cars to have fun owning and fixing them. From then on a hobby developed, maintaining my own cars and restoring cars with each car providing new challenges to hone the skills. In those early days of restoration I was forever raising the standards of my workmanship and always striving for improvement over the last project completed with the attitude" the next restoration project will look even better ".

I have always been very keen to learn and apply traditional methods of vehicle restoration and fortunate to have spent a period of invaluable time with a long serving craftsman before he finally hung up his tools. I'm a strong believer that the quickest way isn't necessarily the best way if you want to be proud of your work. However despite being an advocate for tradition, where it is appropriate I am also happy to incorporate modern technology and materials in order to balance new and old ways and ultimately ensure the best result possible is achieved . Over the years these skills have naturally developed and improved. However I still find time to learn something new and enjoy sharing ideas and thoughts with like minded enthusiasts. 

I have always had a meticulous attention to detail and quality of the final product or service is something I pride myself on. These standards are always applied to every customers requirements irrespective of the size of the works required or the project that needs restoring. 

My wife Trish has also been a keen follower of Classic Cars and has certainly developed her own eye for detail.  If there was anything that didn't look 100% she would certainly keep me focused and offers no compromise. Like every good man, she is all the strength I could wish for and always happy to assist clients when asked with choices in finished body and trim colours. 

Should you wish to visit us to discuss your requirements then you will always be welcome and you can expect a warm welcome too from our Springer Spaniel dog, Bailey.  

In summary Mortons Classic Cars is a small family run business offering a wide range of classic car restoration services from like minded enthusiasts to clients that require quality with a personal and interactive approach all delivered at competitive rates.  - Steve Morton
