Dave's trying to sneak his Datsun 260z engine into the rebuild que again... It'll be a little monster once he succeeds! It'll go nicely with a few goodies... namely a set of tripple 45's!

This should keep Chris busy for the next week or two! It's remarkably tidy underneath, so just a good ol clean, underseal/waxoil followed by a running gear overhaul should see it driving nicely ... See more

Exeter Engineering have proved invaluable in my rebuilding of my 1933 Austin Seven Special. All those jobs I have not had the competence or confidence to do myself, from removing a stuck gear to building an exhaust system, sorting engine problems, to completely wiring the car, have been done with sound advice, friendly professionalism and great engineering skill.”

Mr N Borst-Smith

I have entrusted my classic MG’s to David & Aaron since being introduced to them some 3 years ago. I have been impressed and encouraged with their obvious passion and enthusiasm for classic vehicles and I am delighted with the personal service and standard of work that they have carried out for me. It is reassuring to know that Classic Vehicle owners have access to individuals like David and Aaron who not only share their interest and passion but have the knowledge and skills to help keep their treasured vehicles in top condition to be both used and enjoyed.”

Mr B Tucker

I have been using the expertise and services of the team at Exeter Engineering for quite some time now for the restoration, recommissioning and servicing of many of my classic cars. I’m happy to say that I am extremely satisfied with the results from the team and it’s not only the results but it’s their method of approach to the rebuilding and preservation of specific original units which may be deemed un-important by many other classic car restorers.

I will be continuing to use Exeter Engineering for future work. I highly recommend this very professional and knowledgeable firm to anyone owning a classic vehicle wishing to have work carried out whether it be a service , a recommission or a full nut and bolt restoration.”
Mr K Gilroy
"I had a feeling from the outset after meeting with Dave and Aaron of Exeter Engineering at Powderham classic car show 2017 that I was speaking to two very knowledgeable people within the classic car field, for a young couple of lads who look as if they are just out of their nappies. They certainly know their stuff and have the equipment to refurb any car or bike they put their hands to. I have just used them for the refurbishment of my carburettors on a Jaguar 240 year 1968 and a new power steering pump rebuild along with a rack rebuild. I have got to say that I’m very impressed with the work carried out, the carbs and manifold look brand new with new carb kit and gaskets now in place. The power steering pump is now obsolete, so after hunting around Dave found the internals were still being manufactured for the American market. A new pump was ordered and the innards were removed, to be used in the Jag power steering pump.
A couple of lads in the classic car restoration market are going to go a long way if they keep up with this integrity and professionalism in looking out for the customer.
Top work chaps”
Mr P Haste
"I have a 1987 Mercedes 300 SL which needed some TLC,  I met Exeter Engineering at their stand at Bath & West motoring show. After a detailed inspection the work turned into a complete overhaul, including rust treatment, replacement of many parts and a complete respray. Although the work took longer than anticipated, due to difficulty in obtaining parts, Exeter Engineering kept me up to date throughout the project. I am delighted with the outcome. The signal red looks stunning and complements the cream leather interior, the underside has been carefully treated and even the chrome has a new lease of life."

Mr J Fowl

"I don't know if any classic car enthusiasts happened to see my Austin Healey Frogeyed Sprite Mark 1 at Powderham Classic Car Show last year? This car is now nigh on perfect inside and out and has received huge admiration wherever it has been displayed. It has been superbly restored by Exeter Engineering who are based in Pennymoor, Devon. Their care and attention to detail is second to none and I am proud to say that they are now undertaking another project for me, a BMW tii Lux ... a rare car indeed."

Mrs J Wakefield

"An excellent job from 2 enthusiastic, knowledgeable, and helpful engineers. The work carried out was good value, on time, excellent quality and included advice and suggestions which proved most useful. Highly recommended." Wiring and partial retrimming of MG TA.

Mr M Stevens

"Many thanks, great old fashioned service!"

Mr P Coleman

"I cannot praise Exeter Engineering enough. very reliable and professional service in all respects. My classic came back looking like new, with all its little niggles ironed out! I couldnt recommend them enough."

Mrs G  Lyon

"Just wanted to say how happy I am with the work you have done for me, it was completed to a very high standard. Many thanks for the excellent service and I look forward to using you again."

Mr A Cheriton

"Recently had our vintage tractor cab and front axle rebuilt by the guys at Exeter Engineering. Exceptional quality work and service."
