Mitchell Motors - Classic car paintwork and restoration specialist

Inspiration

Having been lifelong enthusiasts of the Art Deco movement in all its forms, it is natural that we have a special affection for classic vehicles of this era.

Typically being built between 1925 and the early 1940's, Art Deco inspired cars have wonderful design features including technology and aerodynamic influences, patterning and the use of geometric form. The materials used were often opulent and lavish such as lacquer, inlaid wood, mother of pearl and exotic skins such as shark, zebra and ostrich. The coachbuilders creating these vehicles included Figoni & Falaschi, Brandone, Gangloff, Pourtout and Corsica. Classic names from a truly wonderful era of motoring.

Specific to cars, the "Streamline Moderne" Art Deco movement ran parallel to mainstream Art Deco and focused on the aerodynamic styling of a vehicle, featuring sweeping lines, symmetry, V-shapes, patterning and chrome grills.

Having restored Art Deco cars such as the beautiful Bugatti Atalante pictured here and a Delage D8 120 Aerosport: whose restoration was deemed so good it was the focus in a Classic Cars magazine article in 2007.

We are one of the few restorers with actual experience of restoring this type of car and that's due to our exeptionally high standards.

If you have a vehicle of this type and need repair or restoration work carried out, please contact Andrew Mitchell on 01747 820223 or email: andrew.mitchell@mitchellmotors.co.uk

We recognise that owners of this class of vehicle are often 'time poor' so we offer you free restoration and repair assessments at your home or business.

We look forward to hearing from you.
