The Home of Classic Range Rovers

All of us at Kingsley share this common love for Range Rovers and Land Rovers having grown up with them around us. We have been restoring, creating Reborn’ Range Rovers for more than 20 years to clients locally, nationally and now internationally with clients throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, UAE, North and South America.

Damon Oorloff, Founder

Given the chance, I will chat all day about Range Rovers — I guess it’s in my blood, you see I was born less than a mile from the Land Rover, Lode Lane factory in Solihull. 

Most of our neighbours worked at the Land Rover factory so I was always collecting sales brochures and posters and remember, even as a 6 year old in 1971, watching the shiny new Range Rovers leave on transporters finished in wonderful evocative paint names like Masai Red, Bahama Gold, Sahara Dust, Davos White, Tuscan Blue and not forgetting our very British Lincoln Green.

My childhood goal was to own a Range Rover (Classic), I bought my first when I was 19 and have never been without one over the last 35 years all of that time developing and creating parts to improve the drive and the reliability. 

20 years

All of us at Kingsley share this common love for Range Rovers and Land Rovers having grown up with them around us. We have been restoring reborn Range Rovers for more than 20 years to clients locally, nationally and now internationally with clients throughout Europe, Asia, Africa, UAE, North and South America.

As we are a family business with traditional values, offering a very personal service so we therefore tend to have long term relationship with our clients. If you are looking for something specific which you cant find please give us a call as we often locate Land Rovers to order and have non-shark’ trade friends who will happily buy your part exchange car.

Dedicated Range Rover & Land Rover workshop

We have a dedicated Range Rover and Land Rover workshop with 7 ramps, a welding/fabrication shop, body shop, parts dept and trim shop on the A40 Eynsham, in-between Oxford and Witney in Oxfordshire, which is 60 miles north west of London or an hour by train from Paddington to the nearest station Hanborough, where we can by arrangement collect you.

We are constantly restoring Range Rover Classics so if you visit we can show you them in every stage from being dismantled to quantify the scale of corrosion in the welding and fabrication shop which is headed up by our resident "Wizard of Rust" - Stevie, assisted by Lee J (who is also a fully qualified technician and MOT tester), on through to the paint shop run by Bob & Arik, assisted by Tony, on to the mechanical shop which is headed by our Master Technician Paul, backed up by our two Land Rover Technicians then onto the assembly team headed by the Foreman Buzz, assisted by his Deputy Danny and assisted by restoration technicians Finlay, PT, Georgina and Jack. Finally our Quality Tester and Detail Technician Big John who makes sure the car is signed off for delivery.

Our Models’

We offer two very different types of models, a Classic’ restoration where everything is kept original and the Restomod’ where key components are enhanced to improve the drivability, performance and usability of the car.

Both models start with stripping the body-shell which is then separated from the chassis. Every single individual component is removed, cleaned, refurbished, renewed or upgraded, the body-shell is completely refurbished, wheel arches and the underbody are protected with the latest anti-corrosion treatments and then painted. Chassis is fully refurbished, cavity waxed and anti-corrosion protected before a new engine, rebuilt gearbox and all of the running gear fitted before the restored body together with the new interior are fitted. The process takes around 1100 hours and the result is essentially a reborn Range Rover Classic.

Kingsley has a substantial parts and department where we also produce parts and period correct interiors, door cards, carpets and roof linings. 

We also create unique automotive interiors in both leather and alcantara for Land Rovers — have a look at the Interior Trim’ page for inspiration for what we can do for your car or come and have a look at our demonstrators — we can make and supply the covers by mail order if you are on a different continent.

By offering all of our services in-house keeps our costs lower and more importantly affords a degree of quality control which is not normally found at independent specialists. We are committed to providing the highest quality in every aspect of our business.

We can completely restore your Range Rover from the shell and chassis up or can offer lighter repairs for MOT or literally anything in between the two. Kingsley can also update or RestoMod’ Range Rover Classics with many enhancements including the installation of Chevrolet LS3 430BHP crate engines’, air conditioning systems and supply our unique custom made tubeless Land Rover Rostyle’ wheels in 16’’ diameter with 7J wide rims.

Alongside the restorations, we service and repair all Land Rovers (we have the latest Land Rover, Autologic & Bosch diagnostics) and we are an approved Ministry MOT class 4 test station for all cars.
