Naylor Brothers in new hands af­ter half cen­tury

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - News -

A com­pany syn­ony­mous with the MG T-se­ries and its restora­tion has called it a day af­ter 50 years in the busi­ness.

Naylor Brothers Restora­tions, based at Airedale Garage, at Ship­ley, West York­shire was founded by Alas­tair and David Naylor. David left the busi­ness in the early 1980s, but still us­ing ‘Brothers’ in its ti­tle, the firm be­came known in mo­tor­sport cir­cles for the Naylor TF 1700 – a mod­ern high-qual­ity homage to the clas­sic MG TF – launched at the 1984 In­ter­na­tional Mo­tor Show.

Chris Baker of nearby York­shire Restora­tions has taken up the busi­ness and will con­tinue to of­fer ve­hi­cle restora­tion, race and rally prepa­ra­tion, val­u­a­tions, and tech­ni­cal ad­vice.

Alas­tair says: ‘It’s for no other rea­son that I sim­ply wish to re­tire. Not only do we mark 50 years of busi­ness but it’s soon to be my 75 birth­day, so I feel the tim­ing is right to en­joy life and take things easy with my wife Pat. We would like to thank our col­leagues and cus­tomers for all their sup­port.’
