Richard worked for BMW for 5 years before buying Mike Spence Ltd at Shinfield near Reading in 1981. The company at that time were main agents for Morgan and Lancia cars and this started a love affair for both marques that continues to this day. Lancia ceased to import cars in the early 90s and with it came a change in the company name to Richard Thorne Classic Cars. Richard now runs the business with his daughter Helen, who joined the company in 2001.
We are major buyers of both marques and aim to keep a good range in stock at any time. Do contact us if you would like to discuss selling your car.
We can help with any aspect of owning a classic car from routine servicing, competition preparation and performance upgrades, MOTs, restoration, trim, bodywork, and crash repair.
