Welcome To Historic Metalworks Ltd. 


As one of the finest Coachbuilders, the Historic Metalworks is a small but renown vintage car restoration business located in Lymington, Hampshire.   Our craftsmen are skilled to the highest level and are dedicated to undertake the challenges of restoration and re-creations of days gone by using the oldest techniques, such as English wheel and aluminium gas welding.
We specialize in bespoke panel work, historic motorsport restoration, alongside all aspects of general panel beating, to ensure all of our customers are provided with the highest level of quality work and service.
After all “Our reputation is everything“.

We offer complete and partial restorations and work very closely with all of our clients to ensure the best results every time. Over the years we have worked on a wide variety of cars including Aston Martins, Morgans, Bugattis, Emerysons and Ferraris, but to name a few.
Shaun and the team have worked tirelessly on many occasions, on cars which have been subject to unfortunate racing incidents, some of which may initially appear to be an impossible task, only to be sympathetically restored to its former glory and racing again in the same season, many of which can be seen regularly at tracks such as Goodwood.
Whether it be an original car or just a creation of your own design, we can work from drawings and period photographs to capture the essence of the day.
In addition, we also offer a louvring service and other bespoke/custom panel work.
In every project undertaken we ensure the utmost confidentiality
Please call Shaun Witt for an informal chat or advice.
