Thornley Kelham began life in 2009 as The Vintage & Classic Paintshop. Simon and Wayne set out to do exactly what that name suggested - prepare and paint cars to the highest quality. Aston Martins, 'Steady' Barker, mid-life crises, motorway cafes and growing children all played their part.
At the start of 2012 we renamed our company Thornley Kelham Ltd, and in 2014, as we enter our sixth year, we are now a team of 28, having added engine rebuilds, rewiring, and full coachbuilding to our list of restoration services. We have built a Machine Shop, added servicing bays and hired a dedicated Service Manager. We have a full time race mechanic and prepare and support cars on classic road events. We also offer a discreet sales & car sourcing/acquisition service. We have over 32,000 square feet of space and have designed our workshops to accommodate all aspects of the restoration process, including separate enclosed areas for metalwork, panel beating and paintwork preparation, cutting down on noise and dust.
We are based in the Cotswolds, just outside Cirencester in Gloucestershire. We welcome visitors at pretty much any time, and we are also happy to hold open evenings for classic car clubs and groups of vintage enthusiasts to share a beer and quiz us on our work.
