Texas restoration recommendation?


Freshman Member
I just took delivery of a 66 3000 MKIII and plan to give to my Father in California. Prior to delivering it, I'd like to have some body work (small dents), paint and a tune up performed on it. Can another member recommend a British service / restoration shop in Texas? I'm in Austin and would prefer to be within driving distance of the Healey - if possible.

Does anyone have a good recommendation for a shop to handle a partial restoration?

I spent the last hour searching without any results for recommendations. I found Kip Motor in Dallas, any others?

Close to houston I would Use Pekar in Wharton for the bodywork and Roger Williams for mechanical. You might look up the south texas healey club online and make contact. They will likely have a name or two closer to you. Be sure and get someone familiar with the make.
