Foreign Car Specialties Perfection Reimagined
for British Motorcars

Founded by British vehicle enthusiast Jeff Lock in the early 1970s, Foreign Car Specialties was born out of Lock’s desire to repair his own British sports car while in college. Today, the business has grown to become one of the few automotive restoration facilities in the country that focuses specifically on complete high-end restoration, repair and customization of vintage British motor cars (model years 1925-1980). With 40+ years’ experience, the craftsmen at Foreign Car Specialties thrive on the relentless and tenacious pursuit of perfection in their work.



As a result of the shop’s detailed and extensive restoration process, vehicles completed by Foreign Car Specialties not only become show-quality award winners; in many cases, they become family heirlooms, passed down from generation to generation. Our attention to detail and your one-time investment result in a restored vehicle and investment piece that will offer decades of usability.
