About Us

Hightone Restorations was established in 1970 by Malcolm Elder and Tony Dennett, although December 2006 saw the company undergo a change of ownership through retirement. This, however, represents the only change as the company has retained its team of highly skilled craftsmen as well as preserving the values and ethos that have underpinned the success of the company over the years. It is these values, together with maintaining our fine reputation for quality craftsmanship, which are key to ensuring our continued success.

In March 2008 Hightone Restorations moved premises to a new purpose built unit on the site of the parent company Hopcrofts Holt Service Station. We have had a new paint booth installed which will help us maintain the same high standard of work we have always strived to achieve.

Our speciality is high class bodywork repairs and painting. We are capable of all aspects of bodywork including ash framing, panel manufacturing and aluminium welding, mechanical rebuilds & servicing.

We have restored a wide range of cars including Rolls Royce, Bentley, Jaguar, Rover, MG, Darracq, Bean, Lagonda, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Daimler, Talbot, Aston Martin, Facel Vega and Lanchester.

We have extensive experience on restoring Alvis Motor Cars of all ages including Speed 20, Speed 25, 12/50, Firefly, TA21, TC21/100 and TD/E/F Models.

We can offer storage facilities and also vehicle transport through our associate companies.
