Classic Heater

Classic Vehicle Heater Repair Specialist.


We are able to repair, recore / rebuild and build new classic vehicle heaters to their original specifications or upgrade them with a modern style core, whichever you prefer.

We will test the heater first, to establish a diagnosis of the problem.

  • Visual checks provide further useful information


  • Tube plate overhaul
