Company

FOUNDED IN 1904 BY THE WILKINSON FAMILY AS REPAIRERS AND MANUFACTURERS OF HORSE-DRAWN VEHICLES. THE COMPANY DEVELOPED TO BECOME COACHBUILDERS TO THE MOTOR TRADE AS IT EMERGED IN THE 1920’s.

FROM RESTORING VINTAGE ROLLS-ROYCES WHICH WERE MADE IN THE SAME CITY OF DERBY DECADES EARLIER, WILKINSONS DEVELOPED OVER THE LAST 40 YEARS BY RESTORING AND BUILDING COACHWORK FOR A WIDE VARIETY OF QUALITY VINTAGE MARQUES WITH CLIENTS AROUND THE WORLD FROM AMERICA TO AUSTRALIA AND FROM SWEDEN TO JAPAN.

UNLIKE MODERN MASS-PRODUCED CARS EACH VINTAGE CAR IS INDIVIDUAL. OUR POLICY IS TO RESPECT THE SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS OF EVERY CAR ENTRUSTED TO US AND TO RETURN IT TO ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION WITHOUT ‘OVER-RESTORING’ IT. WE WORK CLOSELY TO OUR CLIENTS SPECIFICATIONS AND INSTRUCTIONS AND WELCOME INVOLVEMENT AT EVERY STAGE OF THE RESTORATION PROGRAMME. KEEPING A DETAILED ACCOUNT OF COSTS INVOLVED.

WE WOULD BE DELIGHTED TO DISCUSS YOUR CAR WITH YOU WITHOUT COMMITMENT AND INVITE YOU TO VISIT OUR PREMISES, WHERE YOU WILL SEE WORK IN PROGRESS AND CAN STUDY RECORDS OF PAST RESTORATIONS.

A Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost – Built in Derby in 1910, restored in the same City by Wilkinsons in 1976. Sold at Sothebys auction in Monaco for a record breaking £253,000, at the time, the highest price ever paid in Europe for a
Rolls-Royce. It took a year to restore, coming in as a chassis for Wilkinsons to build a new body for it. All the brightwork from the radiator and headlamps to the running boards was gold plated.
