Wyndon Motors, Coventry’s longest established bodyshop, has opened a new repair centre in Shilton after 57 years at its previous Keresley home.

In the last five years the independent business has grown and added Aston Martin Tier B approval to its stable of Mercedes Benz, VAG and 20 other motor manufacturers approvals.

Wyndon Motors was established in 1964.

Dave Beale took over Wyndon Motors when Martin Taylor retired in 2016, but the business had soon outgrown its premises in Keresley.

When a 15,000 sq ft building became available on the same industrial estate as Beale’s other business, XK Engineering – a classic car restoration business with Aston Martin Tier A approval – Beale decided to relocate.

“When the building became vacant, I knew it would make a perfect bodyshop and was just what I was looking for to take Wyndon Motors into the next phase,” said Beale. “It has ample secure customer parking, a great reception area with wait and work facilities for clients, together with office space which we were severely lacking in Keresley.

“The workshop is an ideal shape and size too and has allowed us to work with Todd Engineering to create a state-of-the-art bodyshop.”

The Wyndon team is led by operations director Paul French, assisted by office manager Karen Sant.
