The 1954 Chevy Bel Air is fairly extreme as far as mechanical modification goes including Mustang II style IFS front suspension, 4 link rear, Notched chassis, full air suspension, bespoke wiring, A 300HP+ V8 Engine and 5 speed manual gearbox swap which all was carried out in house. When pumped up to full height this car could well be just an original old survivor...  A wolf in sheep's clothing you might say. See the full build  here... 

The History of RoadHouse Motor Co.

RoadHouse is a small family run business based just outside Stamford on the South West Lincolnshire/Rutland borders. It was set up by Tim Glover in April 2004 After the liquidation of a partnership he was part of which specialised in the restoration of classic British cars, old VW's and Porsche's.  He had always had a passion for Hot Rods and Customs since being a teenager as well as for anything old, Retro American... It was on a trip to California in March 2004 that he met the guys at MOON and became a dealer for them, the business just evolved from there. he was still heavily involved with importing and working on old VW's for a few years but over time focused more on pre 1970 American cars. RoadHouse has imported over 40 vehicles since 2004, Some have been put on the road and used for sometime before being sold, some brought in and recommissioned/modified for customers and some  have just been brought in and sold on. Tim says 'I always try to buy the most original cars or trucks that I can find, I love good patina and there is the added bonus that if it is original or very old paint that it hasn't just been bodged up with a load of filler just to get a sale'. 




What we do...


Anything from standard recomissioning to full on frame scraping,  Air suspension, Custom modifications, Here are a couple of examples...

The 1940 Chevy is quite subtle mechanical modification wise... It still runs most of its original suspension although uprated somewhat. It has a later 235ci straight six stovebolt engine has been fitted and a 5 speed manual gearbox and Pontiac rear axle. Great for long distance cruising and a lot of fun too.
