Icon Classic Car was established to make available for hire a range of iconic classic British cars and 4x4 vehicles, hence our name and logo.
We are passionate about classic cars and motorsport. Keith Sinclair has had the good fortune to own, at some time, Triumph, Rover, Mini Cooper, Jaguar, Morgan and MG. While competent enough to maintain the cars to a high standard father Clarence Keith, now a (semi) retired engineer, was always on hand to rebuild a Herald 13/60 gearbox, renew the front suspension on a TR6 or more recently replace the window winding mechanisms on the Mini Cooper. Andres Keith, the youngest member of the team, also “likes” cars, so while training to be a mechanic it seemed the right time to combine all the experience, share some of the passion and in May 2012 Icon Classic Car was born.
Premises were acquired in Marchwood, Southampton which combine workshop facilities and an office and reception area on a site where the collection of cars can be safely stored. Since the inception of the business idea in late 2011, the Icon Classic Car team has been active developing the facilities and acquiring a number of cars in addition to those introduced into the business by Keith. The intention is that the cars will be available for hire from the start of the season in February/March through to October/November each year with the intervening months dedicated to maintenance and refurbishment works.
Our philosophy is to acquire cars which are of a very high standard in terms of presentation and continue to maintain and improve them when we think it is desirable to do so. For this reason we also rely on specialist garages in our neighborhood to perform certain servicing and periodic checks including obtaining the annual MoT. For your peace of mind all cars available are comprehensively insured and come with national breakdown cover.
