Ben has always had a passion for conducting business and has a natural ability for making things happen through his drive to succeed, networking skills, continuous learning and personal initiative.

At the age of just 17, Ben set up the business in the garden of his family home in Wellington, Somerset. He bought an old classic Mini that required attention with a view to restoring it and selling it on. His passion for high standard paint and body work developed during this time and Ben took on varied work for local garages and traders. This marked the beginning of an evolving business. Needing to expand, Ben set up a small workshop in Ottery St. Mary, Devon and was offered an opportunity to complete a bare-metal respray of a Jaguar E-Type giving him the chance to show the world his extraordinary natural talent.

Ben has always had an appreciation of design, style and high-quality craftsmanship. To date he has worked on many iconic vehicles ranging from Jaguar E-Types to Maseratis and Ferraris and he has worked hard to build a portfolio of international clients.

Ben’s dedicated team of nine have over 50 years’ experience in the restoration industry. They share a passion and have a sense of pride in bringing varying marques back to their former glory. From full concours restorations to small repairs, our diligent craftsmen can refurbish your pride and joy to the highest possible standard.

Blackline offer the full restoration package. Our services range from mechanical servicing, engine re-builds, body refinishing, welding, paint, trim, and vehicle transportation.

Coming soon in 2021 and new to Blackline, we will be involved in a series of classic car electric conversions. Follow us on social media to keep up to date on all the latest news.
