Vintage Sportscars Canada has a long history in the restoration and maintenance of vintage, classic, and special interest automobiles.
The business began in the mid 1970's with the restorations of several rare quality sportscars. Among these were a 1954 Gullwing that had been in a flood, a 1959 Jaguar XK150 Open Two Seater, that won national 1st prize at JCNA events in the United States in 1993 and 1998.
During the early days of the company many other projects were completed. Some of which were; a 1929 Bugatti Type 44 that had been burnt beyond recognition and a 1962 Ferrari Pininfaina Cabriolet that had burnt and had a building collapse upon it.
Some of our customers included Mr. Alan Grant who at one time had the largest collection of MG cars in Canada; Mr. Don Francks, a famous actor who has a large collection of Model T Ford Speedsters; and Mr. James Dale who had several rare Jaguars including an alloy XK-120, a C Type and an XKSS.
Currently, we work for several collectors who have approximately 12 cars each. Some of these collections include Mercedes 300SL Gullwings and Roadsters; 1937 Cord Sportsman, 1932 Auburn 12 cyl. Boattail Speedster; 1970 Porsche 911S; 1976 Ferrari 308GTB; 1967 Jaguar XKE OTS; 1967 MGB; 1964 Triumph TR4 and many others.
Our current projects include a 1933MG-J2 engine, a 1955 Lancia Aurelia B20-S for complete restoration, a 1964 Alpha Romeo Giuila Spider for complete restoration, and a 1951 Jaguar MK V for complete restoration. In addition to the above, a complete restoration for a 1980 Toyota Land Cruiser and the fabrication of a complete aluminum body for a 1950 AllardJ-2 which was the former London Motor Show Car.
Recently we were informed that the green Austin-Healy 100S that appears in our photo gallery has been sold for approximately $900,000.00. An all time record for any restored Austin-Healy.
