Taylor Automotive specialises in the restoration and development of high performance classic cars. As part of our development works we regularly make bespoke parts and systems to meet our customers' needs. This often involves design, fabrication and fitment of specialist parts that simply cannot be bought. Whilst we carry out restoration work the company ethos revolves around development and improvement. This has naturally lead to a range of our own developed products that solve common problems on the vehicles we deal with. An off shoot of our development work is classic race preparation and track side support. We expect this part of our business to grow substantially in the future.
