About Us

Welcome to John Chatham cars, specialists in restoring, treating and maintaining Austin Healeys and classic '50s, '60s and 70s British sports cars, including Jaguars, BMCs and many more.

Ever since the first Austin Healeys hit the roads back in 1952, their unique allure has captivated generations of motorists, and John Chatham cars has been there every step of the way.

We have deep roots in the classic car business, particularly with Austin Healeys. Our founder John Chatham knew the Healey family well, and raced Healeys internationally for over 40 years.


John enjoyed a long and successful career, racing Healeys in over 20 countries against legendary figures from the golden age of motorsport like Stirling Moss and Timo Makinen, and remains closely involved in the classic car business to this day.  

His biography Mr Big Healey was released in April 2010, describing his exploits during his long and illustrious career, and of course his love of classic cars.   

Our team of craftsmen at our headquarters in Bristol apply the same love and attention to the cars today, using their knowledge, expertise and technical nous to keep Healeys purring.
