This site is the umbrella organisation for all Rootes Car Clubs and has its archive centre and trust headquarters at Westcott in Buckinghamshire.

Over the years we have restored or carried out a variety of work on most marques within the Rootes Group, these can be split into definate ranges with model similarities and they suffer similar problems. The vast Audax and associated range started the large family family of Sunbeam, Hillman and Singer cars, developed further into the Husky and the Alpine and Tiger. Most of the models in this range have been catered for and we are familiar with the structural and mechanical problems with these cars. 

The Imp ( apex ) and ( arrow ) Hunter range have also been attended to by us and we can undertake the same aspects of work on these cars as well. Bringing us right up to the last venture the Chrysler / Talbot Sunbeam Ti and Lotus Sunbeam, we also have experience of.

Because of our knowledge base over different examples of a large model range we can draw similarities and recognise the closeness in structural and parts design to incorporate cross overs in our repair and refurbishment program`s.
