Classic Cars of Kent was started 33 years ago by Shaun Rainford. Shaun started the business by offering service and restoration for MG’s and Triumphs. His career as a racing driver lead him to championship wins in his MG Midgets and Austin-Healey Sprites. Over the years motorsport became a larger part of the business, and with the huge rise in popularity in Historic Motorsport the company has grown to be a fully comprehensive one-stop historic racing and classic car specialist. We support a number of clients and attend the full season of historic racing events with most major clubs. We have been attending the Goodwood Revival as competitors since 2005 both in our own right and with many of our clients race cars.

We can offer the complete restoration or historic racing package including complete ground up restoration, panel fabrication, body repairs, re-spray and painting, lettering and sign writing, machine shop, rolling road tuning, corner weighting, suspension setup, engine building, car storage, car transportation and recovery, race support, and more. Furthermore, all of this can be found under one roof.


In 2008 CCK acquired the moulds, together with the intellectual rights for all the Lenham panels that the company made for sports cars, along with the trading name “The Lenham Motor Company Ltd”.  This included moulds for the early Lenham GT top which, along with the Superfast bonnet, fitted on the Frogeye floor pan.  John Britten’s famous racing Lenham GT, SS1800 has been recreated, and to complete the Lenham Spridget range, the Company has now acquired the moulds and rights to the Lenham GTO, the open top version of the Lenham Le Mans Coupe.  A GTO demonstrator was created in Spring 2010. Lenham Motor Company Ltd is very much alive and customers can chose from all Lenham body kits and hard tops to order.
