Restoration & Servicing
Classic Mechanical Restoration
Mechanical restoration is a specialist undertaking. It’s a skill that calls for patience, dedication and improvisation. Most of all it takes passion.
A restoration project can vary from a day’s work to months in the workshop - be it a full restoration from start to finish, assisting with the more technical aspects of the project, or polishing off the finer details. David is as dedicated to your classic restoration project as you are and will consult with you at every step of the way.
Regular servicing is commonly overlooked by classic car owners because they often have low kilometres and aren’t on the roads every day. But it’s just as important for classic cars as it is for modern cars.
After all the care and investment that goes into a restoration project, an avoidable breakdown during an outing is the last thing you want. Regular servicing will help keep your vehicle in optimum condition, so that all you have left to worry about is remembering to pack a picnic basket and a bottle opener.
David Wiggins Classic Mechanical is an Authorised Inspection Station (AIS), and an Authorised Unregistered Vehicle Inspection Station (AUVIS). We offer registration checks for both classic & modern vehicles, including trailers and motorbikes.
For classic cars, registration requirements can vary. Depending on the vehicle you may need either full registration or Historical Vehicle registration. If your car is unregistered and/or you purchased it interstate or internationally it will require a Blueslip Inspection.
We’ll help make sure you have the right registration requirements for your car.
"David treats our 1949 MGY named 'Harold' as if it was his own. His conscientious workmanship has had our MG running extremely well. When the time came for a new motor and renewing other mechanical components after 25 years on the road as second car, I had no hesitation in asking David to do the work on our MG. The new motor already demonstrates the high quality of his work. He has also taken great care in sourcing the necessary parts and working through his mechanical restoration process with us. I know when the job is done it will have been done right and that David will stand behind his work."

"David Wiggins has restored two cars for me over the last few years, a 1964 EH Holden Special 179 Automatic which had been submerged in flood waters for 3 days and a 1957 Cadillac Coupe De Ville imported from USA, severely burnt while being unloaded from container. Both these cars have been totally restored to original with David chasing original parts both locally and overseas, these cars are a credit to David and his passion for classic cars. Both cars were driven, one to Cairns and the other to Sunshine Coast Queensland without missing a beat and are now on full registration for special occasions. Would not hesitate in recommending David too highly for his character, passion and skill, safe hands for any challenge. Sincerely S. Forbes"
