Ashridge Automobiles specialise in the sale, purchase and restoration of vintage, post vintage thoroughbred (PVT) and classic cars with a particular expertise in the Riley marque.
We have over 100 years of combined experience with Rileys and stock many used parts, as well as provide advice on restoration, values and suitable upgrades to consider when running your classic or vintage car.
Whilst much of our work can be done in-house, we retain the services of professional individuals and small businesses for all external work, selected after many years of trial and error so that we can become your ‘one stop shop’ for all restoration work.
We have a long association with Rileys and build 3 very attractive and potent Riley Specials, tailor made to suit many events and applications.
We are centrally located on the Beds, Herts and Bucks borders and within an hours drive of Luton, Heathrow and Stansted airports. Ashridge Automobiles is only thirty minutes from Bicester Heritage. This makes us easily connected to overseas customers and we are able to find accommodation for those visiting.
