Naylor Brothers in new hands after half century
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.’
