Committed to keeping automotive heritage alive

About us

Welcoming collection owners and private enthusiasts alike, as well as historic motorsport and event competitors, we provide a comprehensive range of service for your classic, vintage or specialist vehicle.

Quest Classic Car Restoration is a family owned organisation located in the North West of England, established at our current location for over two decades.

Our proprietor (Sunny) has alone 55 years of experience in the vehicle body repair industry.  He originally honed his skills and learned his trade at home, on the Mediterranean island of Malta, before moving to the UK in 1977.  Inaugurating his own business shortly after, initially in the small market town of Ormskirk, high demand in the late 90’s required a move to our current premises. 

Today Quest occupies a 9000+ sq. ft. facility complete with an extensive array of equipment to assist us in providing outstanding results.  We are extremely proud of what we have and continue to accomplish at Quest, our team are true car enthusiasts and virtuosi of their trade.  With combined experience spanning over 150 years, all our staff are committed to keeping automotive heritage alive for future generations to enjoy and creating moving artwork.

Every project we undertake is intricately photographically documented from start to completion, and clients are actively encouraged to visit our workshop regularly to monitor and discuss the progress of their vehicle.

With services ranging from complete ‘nut and bolt’ restorations, to structural and cosmetic repairs, historic event preparation, ongoing classic/vintage car maintenance as well as full customisation and ‘RestoMod’ fabrication and builds we offer the complete package for our clients.

An obsessive level of attention to detail and a continual pursuit of the highest quality.

We’re truly delighted that a number of our past projects have gone on to win a myriad of awards at various national car shows and meetings, fetched significant values at prestigious international auctions or provided their owners with a tremendous level of joy and enjoyment.  

"What is the secret of Quest’s outstanding work?
The formula comprises integrity, intelligence, knowledge, experience, precision, attention to detail, a genuine passion for restoration and lots of hard work; add a touch of genius and a pinch of magic et voila!"
