Exeter Engineering - About us

Exeter Engineering are specialists with over 50 years' combined experience in fully bespoke restorations of classic and vintage cars, bikes and other vehicles. We also carry out smaller improvement works and individual part restoration, precision engineering work and everything in between.

Founded by David Hodnett and Aaron Barnett, Exeter Engineering is a trusted and experienced classic vehicle restoration company based in the heart of Devon. Both David and Aaron come from different engineering backgrounds and share an immense passion for classic vehicles and engineering in general. The company came into fruition in early 2014, and has been consistently expanding its range of services, now providing a "one stop shop" for all those projects, whether it be a full restoration or the manufacture of an individual component.

We also offer vehicle sourcing, advice and vehicle assessments for those seeking a professional opinion when buying classic vehicles, please do get in touch if this is a service you require or simply want to discuss.

We are proud of our cutting-edge in-house facilities and trusted local partnerships built over the years, both of which allow us to complete all projects to the highest quality and at a competitive price.

Here at Exeter Engineering we strive to be the industry leaders in the classic vehicle restoration world, delivering excellence in all fields of our expertise and providing that quality workmanship that can be so hard to find. Our growing list of testimonials are testament of this.

We are proud to be accredited by the Federation of Engine Re-manufacturers, and members of the Association of Heritage Engineers and Federation of Small Businesses.
