About Us / A Propos
Garage Andreas is an independent garage specialising in the servicing, repair and restoration of vintage, classic and performance cars. It is located in the beautiful rolling countryside of the the Gers in South West France.
Over 40 years of experience allows us to offer part or full restoration, servicing and engine building facilities, historic race preparation and relevant paperwork (FIA, ETP, HTP).
During this time, Andreas has built a network of trusted, equally passionate suppliers, dealers and garages alike, enabling him to maintain the highest standards of both parts and occasional contract work he demands for his clients in todays competitive classic car market.
Garage Andreas est un garage spécialisé dans l’entretien, la réparation et la restauration de véhicules classiques et sportives. Il est situé dans un environnement idyllique, la belle campagne gersoise, au coeur du sud ouest de la France.
Nos plus de 40 ans d’expérience vous proposent une rénovation partielle ou complète, un entretien courant ou même une restauration de moteurs tout type. Nous proposons également des préparations et suivis sur circuits de véhicules de compétition. Nous pouvons aussi nous charger de vous obtenir différents documents tels que passeport historique ou carte grise de collection.
Notre longue expérience nous a permit de construire des partenariats privilégiés avec de nombreux fournisseurs de pièces, garages et sous traitants spécialisés ainsi que vendeurs de voitures classiques.
2015 marked 40 years specialising in the classic and performance sector of the motor industry.
Andreas’ experience started in London in the 1970’s with Libra Motive, including the competition preparation of the Morgan Motor Company Plus 8 MMC II, that became the 1978 BRDC & 1979 BRSCC winner of the Production Sports Car championship; driven by Charles Morgan and Rob Wells. Following that in the 80’s came a further Libra Motive developed Plus 8, MMC 111, that went on to win the STP Modsports championship.
Andreas then moved to the SW of England and started his own company, endorsed by the Morgan Motor Company appointing him as an Official Morgan Service Agent. Over the last 30 years Andreas has built an enviable reputation not just for servicing and competition preparation of Morgans, but also all types of Vintage, Classic & historic motor cars. The pace of life may have slowed a little with the move a few years ago to SW France, however the range of marques has expanded along with the services, experience and expertise offered.
Today, Garage Andreas is a trade member of the FFVE (Fédération Française des Véhicules d’Epoque) which allows us to keep up to date with legislation and any changes in requirements for obtaining your Carte Grise, importing classic cars, contrôle techniques, exemptions and other frequently changing requirements.
