A reputation for superior coachbuilding and antique auto restoration

Rod Jolley was taught as a panel beater by Wally Parr. Wally built the body work for Sir Malcolm Campbell's Bluebird - a car that was refitted some years later by Rod Jolley Coachbuilding.

In 1975 Rod repanelled a 1921 Anzani AC for a friend. Such was the quality of his work that he was soon inundated with new historic car fabrication projects. In 1984, Rod took on a factory unit and three people. One of the three has retired but two still remain. From these humble beginnings, Rod Jolley Coachbuilding has grown to enjoy an enviable global reputation as specialist antique auto restorers.

The company are pleased to undertake antique vehicle projects that may seem impossible. Owing to the experience acquired over many years the company has gained unique confidence in tackling the most complex of body repair and restoration projects.

One small sketch of a proposed body for the Type 57 Bugatti, drawn by Gangloff in 1936, was the beginning of a typically rewarding carrosserie project for the team. From this insubstantial source, a new body was designed and constructed, the remarkable result of which continues to enhance the company's reputation worldwide. One of many valued clients is the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. Rod Jolley has restored or re-bodied several vehicles in the collection, including the Sunbeam Bluebird and Lord Montagu's own Mercedes 36/220.
