Andrew Coxhead, the owner of 355 Automobile Restorations Ltd, has recently celebrated being in business for 30 years.

While modern road cars generally are well catered for regarding spare parts, it is becoming increasingly hard to source the necessary spares for the many fabulously elegant classic and race cars in the hands of discerning collectors today.
Because of this, over the years our craftsmen and panel beaters have repeatedly risen to the challenges of making something out of virtually nothing.
Whether it's steel, aluminium or glass fibre, our panel beaters regularly achieve the almost-impossible by making or rebuilding unobtainable parts from scratch.
Our painters have an unrivalled eye for colour and can reproduce an original finish to exacting tolerances whether your car is new or old, and whether you just need a scratch retouched or a full re-spray to concours standards.
Our computer-controlled paint mixing and colour matching system is at the leading edge of current technology and this, coupled with our oven-baking and infra-red drying systems, ensures the finest, blemish-free and longest-lasting finishes available today.
355 have built an enviable reputation for consistently producing the best quality job to the highest of standards.
The company directly employs its own core workforce of time-served craftsmen, supplemented by specialist sub-contractors that have been tried and tested over the years.
Sourcing new projects, and the workforce to carry them out, is done almost wholly on recommendation and this, together with effective management, promotes the high quality we are able to achieve.
From the smallest scratch to a total bare-metal body restoration, 355 Send will guarantee you the personal attention of our perfectionist staff. You are welcome to come and see us at any time and we actively encourage regular visits to our workshops while work is in progress - we want you to see what we are doing!
