Lessian Motors have an acknowledged track record for maintaining and restoring classic cars for over 35 years, and now we can also provide those important annual checks / independent valuations your car insurance company may require you to produce.

Whilst vehicles manufactured or registered before January 1960 no longer require an MOT test, your classic car insurer may still require an annual road worthiness check to be carried out – as they place the onus of responsibility on the owner to ensure the vehicle is road worthy at all times.

Additionally, many insurers require an independent vehicle valuation in order to provide an ‘agreed valuation’ in case of theft or total loss – to avoid the dreaded ‘market value’ only pay out should the worse happen to your pride and joy.

At Lessian, our experienced engineers can carry out a valuation or vehicle check and supply the relevant required documentation your insurer may ask to see – providing you with peace of mind for another happy year of classic motoring.

Prestigious restoration success

Ilkley’s vehicle servicing, MOT and specialist car restoration garage, Lessian Motors, is celebrating after a classic Porsche 911 they played a role in restoring was entered for sale at the prestigious Bonhams auction house, which took place last week at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

The rare 1969 Porsche 911T was purchased by David Graves Specialist Cars of Ilkley in 2011, but required a full strip down and rebuild. With every part of the classic supercar being renovated or replaced during its restoration, David Graves commented: “We chose Lessian Motors to paint the newly restored car bodywork because of their expertise and reputation in classic car restoration. When we acquired the car it was white – not the original colour, so we decided to return the vehicle to its original ‘Blood Orange’ factory colour.”

The car was spray painted to exacting standards by Lessian Motors, using their specialist ‘low bake’ paint oven and using period-correct ’68 Line’ Glasurit paint formulations, again, supplied by Lessian Motors. After painting, Lessian engineers also refitted the car’s major mechanical parts such as suspension, engine and gearbox, before returning it to David Graves Specialist Cars to complete the restoration task.

So exacting were the standards of the restoration that the vehicle was awarded the prestigious ‘Certificate of Authenticity’ by Porsche prior to its sale – confirming that it was restored to the factory’s own high standards, and adding further to the car’s value.

After the car’s sale at Bonhams auction, David enthused, “I am over the moon at the quality and attention to detail the Lessian Motors team delivered on this project. I can’t praise the standard of their craftsmanship high enough. The garage is a gem of an asset for anyone living in or around Ilkey who need to find a quality vehicle servicing or car bodywork and painting provider.”

Stop quicker with winter tyres!

To prepare your car for winter driving conditions, all drivers should consider using winter tyres. And that’s particularly so for motorists in our region, where the increased chance of heavy snow and ice can make driving conditions treacherous.

Unlike with normal tyres, winter tyres provide more effective grip on the road during cold and icy conditions – reducing the chance of an accident.

The rubber compound of winter tyres is different to normal tyres, being specifically formulated to work in temperatures below 7 degrees centigrade. With a normal tyre, if the temperature drops below 7 degrees the tyre loses its flexibility.

In the cold, ice, and snow, winter tyres provide a level of grip that no normal tyre can match. A vehicle fitted with winter tyres will come to standstill on a snow-covered road (from a speed of 30mph) two full car lengths sooner than a car fitted with with normal tyres!

To get ready for winter, ask us about winter tyre options for your vehicle today.
