Welcome to Wren Classics

Spring is almost with us, HOORAY. and it is time to get your classic car ready for some miles is 2024.

To make sure your car is safe and ready for action, why not book it in with us for a check over and may be a service?

Neither modern nor old vehicles like being left to stand unusued as the oil seals harden and leak, the brake fluid is hydroscopic so will have been absorbing water all winter and will need changing, that modern fuel will have to use will have gone stale and the carburettors may need to be cleaned out as the deposits the fuel has left will be blocking them up, and like all of us oldies, your the suspension joints will need greasing again! So protect your investment and bring it to us for a health check.

 At Wren Classics we pride ourselves on the attention to detail and quality of workmanship that we place on every vehicle that comes into our workshop.

Based in Shaftesbury in Dorset we are ideally placed for customers from all around the UK.

Over the past decade we have built up a great reputation for restoration and routine service on all models of Aston Martin. We have experience in the early DB's, DB2, DB4, DB5 and DB6, up to the more modern Aston Martin DB7,DB9, DBS 6 cylinder and V8; we have also raced many of these models, so we know a thing or two about making them work as they were meant to.

Wren Classic Aston Martin Specialists in Dorset was the idea of Steve Farthing, a motoring enthusiast and experienced race driver. A perfectionist, who wants his exacting standards to be carried over to every car that comes into the workshops. Steve Farthing started racing Karts at an early age and progressed through the different formulas including Mallock U2's, working closely with the late Arthur Mallock. He raced Super Ford 2000 in the late 1970's using Adrian Reynards chassis, driving for the European Reynard Dealer and then onto Formula Super Vee. Today Steve Farthing can be seen racing many great classic cars in Historic Racing all over the UK and Europe.

We have customers with a variety of cars including; Aston Martin, Jaguar, Bentley, Porsche, Ferrari, Maserati, Lamborghini, De Tomaso, Rolls Royce, Bentley. Our customers with race cars deal through our race preparartion department called Wrensport.

Please contact us to discuss any car restoration or car servicing that you may require, callers are always welcome to have a look around our workshop, but please phone ahead to ensure Steve is available to spend some time with you.
