Classic Cars
Company Size

Since starting more than 30 years ago, JD Classics has become well known for ‘quality and attention to
detail’. The one-stop shop for everything from sales, restoration and servicing to racing show cars has a Mayfair showroom, but is predominantly based in Essex: there it has a purpose-built workshop, extensive storage and seven further showrooms. New MD David Godber trained as an economist and joined Lotus in 1998. ‘As an economist I’ve seen the market shift dramatically,’ he says. ‘It’s an alternative investment category that can’t be ignored.’ It’s all about the detail for Godber: ‘Whether it’s inside, underneath or outside the car, every nut and bolt has to be right for us to achieve the level of quality we seek.’
