Welcome to Auto Classico, we are a family run business that offer a friendly and professional service to classic and sports car owners. Our business comprises car sales, servicing, mechanical/body repairs and restoration. We are small enough to provide a personal service but large enough to be able to deal with all aspects of any project. We are true car enthusiasts with a genuine passion for what we do. We hope you enjoy the site please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries.
Auto Classico occupies a 7,000 square foot site in Henfield, just north of the M4 outside Bristol in South West England.
Call in to our premises and you are likely to see a great mix of machinery, including Aston Martins, Jaguars, Ferraris, Mercedes, MGs, Porsches, TRs, to name just a few, all of which regularly pass through our workshops. Our team of enthusiastic staff is able to take on full and part restorations, servicing, tuning, mechanical repairs, engine and gearbox rebuilds, fabricating and welding, accident repairs and paintwork. We also provide a race preparation service and have had some success over the years with historic race & rally cars.
We are recommended by The Jaguar Enthusiasts Club of Great Britain and Mercedes Owners Club. See our restoration page for examples of our work on both of these marques.
Mike Mercer MIMI started his mechanical apprenticeship at the age of 14. Inspired by the sights and sounds of classic British racing cars at nearby Castle Combe Circuit, Mike's love affair with cars began in 1965 and he has been involved with cars ever since. The move into classic car restoration came in 1990 when Mike founded Auto Classico, which he still runs. Since then Mike has dedicated himself to building up the company and its reputation.
Auto Classico currently employs 5 full time technicians. We also have 2 apprentices, and keenly support the development of young enthusiasts, passing on our experience and knowledge to the next generation. See our services pages for information on what we can offer the discerning car owner.
