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.
