From this an opportunity arose to further his skills working for a vintage car specialist building one off car bodies and restoring existing ash framed bodies.
These were panelled in aluminium, each piece 'wheeled-up' by hand using traditional techniques. John also gained experience restoring and remaking complete leather interiors, making new hoods, tonneau covers and trimming fabric bodies.
Fulfilling a life-long ambition, John went on to set up his own classic car restoration business. This allows him to provide a one to one personal service to the very highest of standards at very competitive prices.
Heritage Classics is a family business established by John Collins to provide a very comprehensive restoration service for all makes of classic and vintage cars.
John spent four years training as a City and Guilds qualified vehicle body builder, coach and paint sprayer.
After completing his apprenticeship building and repairing aluminium and fiberglass .P.S.V. vehicles, a deep-rooted interest in classic and vintage cars drew him to work building and restoring Triumph TR Sports cars for a very well respected TR dealer.
