We are a family run business restoring historic steam vehicles and specialising in Stanley Steam Cars and Sentinel Steam Waggons. Founded in 1972 by John Goold and later joined in the mid 90’s by his two sons Justin & Grant, who now run the company on a day to day basis since John’s retirement, carrying on his passion for all things steam.
With 50 years of experience in the world of engineering and steam, we have a wealth of knowledge in Stanley and Sentinel steam vehicles and can offer a wide range of services. This spans from the manufacturing of a simple component, such as a missing bolt through to a complete ‘ground up’ concours vehicle restoration.
Revitalising your pride and joy steam vehicle could be as simple as a cosmetic face lift i.e. re-painting, trimming work, electro plating, or a full mechanical overhaul.
The client’s expectations of the finished restoration are fundamental to the start.
Every restoration is individual and so is the approach. Some clients may request a full ‘nut & bolt’ vintage correct overhaul whereas others may merely wish to have a more functional service.
We strive to manage the expectations of clients and offer a full liaison service from your initial enquiry throughout the complete restoration.
