Family business since 1985 in Coburg… Restoration since 1996

Conservation of values and reliable attendance – since 1985 

Classic cars and Oldtimer are at home in our shop since 1985. From the beginning on we, as a “Free workshop”, specialized on Mercedes-Benz in Coburg.

As a Classic Car shop we are consulted for projects with various marks. We manufacture and duplicate sheet metal components, cable harnesses and also the rust-protection covers all of the Classic Car owner and driver.

Recognize and preserve values

1958 – Horst Beyer founds a free Automobile Workshop, with the focus on Mercedes-Benz. The at that time modern cars are still attended in our workshop.

1959 – The first Mercedes comes into family property – a Ponton model, today still in property of the family.

1970 – Horst Beyer already attends a firm circle of regular customers with Mercedes-Benz cars in Coburg.

1990 – VW, Audi, Škoda, Opel and Ford are included with the modern cars. Still the emphasis lays on Mercedes-Benz.

1993 – Master mechanic Günter Beyer takes over the workshop in the second generation.

1995 – Our own fleet of cars is extended with a Mercedes Heckflosse – we begin the restoration of the same car. In the meantime, all classic cars of all brands are attended.

1999 – Reconstruction of the workshop and extension of two positions. Our 4-year old twins divide our classic cars amongst them: To prevent future discussions. That sets our minds at ease.

2013 – To the positive surprise of us all, one of our daughters takes the decision to start a car mechatronics traineeship to join the firm later. She starts the traineeship in a family business in Lautertal near to Coburg.
New for us – a complete restoration of an “American” in our workshop – Ford Thunderbird, 1 Series (Early Bird). The planned termination of the restoration is the Spring 2015.

2014 – It is a long discussed decision – in the future we will only attend the classic car sector, and let the modern cars phase out.

2015 – The Ford Thunderbird is finished in August – our first US-American model. In December comes a Pagode model which is our first own restoration, which is planned for sales.

2016 – The MB T123 (look at the picture above) – technical improvement with optical upgrading is sold.
