American & Classic Car 

For as long as Penguin Speed Shop has been established, we have been working with American and Classic cars. Our experience through the years has left us with a wealth of knowledge over a comprehensive range of cars. We also have an extensive library of American and classic car data, so we can understand and undertake all works in accordance to the original specifications.

We carry a large stock of standard service items for cars from the 40’s, to current production models. We work with the majority of American and UK classic car suppliers making parts delivery fast and cost effective.

We have regular shipments from our overseas suppliers and make regular shopping trips to the USA looking for NOS(New Old Stock) spares. We can supply and fit or even just supply parts. We can help with your projects, whatever your requirements are.

American Car Restoration

This has been the mainstream of Penguin Speed Shop from the beginning. We have customised countless Hot Rods and customs from mild to wild daily drivers to show winners.Our restoration work on standard american cars has been featured many times in magazines and have won many trophies at major UK and European shows. 

We have worked  with selected partners for many years to ensure our builds are completed to both our and our customer’s exact requirements and can draft in when required marque specific specialists to ensure originality is maintained. We have full metal working capabilities to remanufacture or repair hard to find components.

All our builds are project managed to ensure deadlines are met and a project brief is developed and agreed. We work on a fixed price basis with stage payments to ensure budgets are met and adhered to. We update our customers who are further afield with regular video conference calls and pictures so you can monitor the project and remain involved. We encourage new potential clients to visit the shop and look at the work we are undertaking and get to meet the team. 

We undertake all aspects of custom work from roof chops engine and transmission swops, suspension and brake upgrades. The sky really is the limit when it comes to creating your dream ride. We can source your donor car and undertake all works necessary to completion.

For classic restorations we have an extensive library to ensure that period correct parts are sourced and fitted to retain the integrity of the build.

We have undertaken show winning restorations of British and European cars. Our key areas of expertise are in Jaguar, Triumph and Lotus vehicles but have worked on a wide and varied range of classic vehicles.

We can undertake works from daily driver standard to full concourse condition and cover all aspects of the build in house or with our carefully selected partners.
