Why an annual service is vital for your Classic

We Have Got You Covered

Like us, you want your classic to run reliably and protect your investment. The best way to ensure this is by carrying out an annual service. We have become so used to covering 20,000 miles in modern vehicle before we even think of an oil change, we forget that a few years ago service intervals were as frequent as 3,000 miles or six months.

It is also a fact that cars manufactured before 2000 require comprehensive servicing. Modern vehicles simply require an oil change and worn out components replacing. Every vehicle in classic use will benefit from a professional annual service.

Manufacturers Service Schedules are not fit for purpose. They were developed in anticipation of the cars being used daily. Today statistics reveal that the average collector car is used thirty-two days a year. Ironically, long periods of inactivity put a greater strain on a car’s components than when it is used regularly.

With so many different classics a ‘one size fits all’ schedule is almost impossible. However with minor adjustments for fuel injection, electronic ignition and air-cooled vehicles it is possible to make a comprehensive list of work which should be carried out every year.

With experience gained maintaining over a thousand different vehicles, Project Shop has developed the following Service Schedules for vehicles in classic use. We also have specific knowledge on almost every classic vehicle in the UK, so we can adjust the list for a specific make or model.
