The Workshop

At Revs Institute Workshop, we perform the extraordinary care and attention needed to preserve the vehicles from the Miles Collier Collections. The cars are functioning vehicles exercised on public roads and raced on tracks.

Our Technicians

A team of expert technicians ensures the cars are preserved, yet functional and driven. The workshop team, with over 350 years of combined experience, are craftsmen in all aspects of historic car care. Together, the technicians maintain the vehicles to remarkably high standards, prepare them for the road or track, and plan for their long-term conservation. Each technician is an expert in their own field and shares that knowledge with the next generation. The workshop includes specialized areas for upholstery, engines and transmissions, metalwork, paint, and woodworking.

The Process

The technicians carefully check each car before, during, and after it enters the shop, with complete written and photographic documentation. They document work performed on each vehicle, so a complete history is always available.

Each car is checked for:

  • Cockpit Function and Condition
  • Electrical System
  • Engine Operation and Condition
  • Brake System
  • Suspension Components
  • Fuel System
  • Lubrication and Fluids
  • Spare Parts
  • Steering
  • Supplies
  • Tools
  • Transmission and Clutch
  • Machining
  • Fabrication

Preservation, conservation, and preventative measures ensure these meticulously-selected rare vestiges of automotive history remain operational and at museum quality.
