Right from our earliest days, British cars have been a good part of the Whitehead Performance repair and performance mix. From Greg and Vince racing an MG Midget back in the 70’s, to recent work rebuilding a Triumph Spitfire drivetrain, we have the experience to service your vintage car from the other side of the pond.
Whitehead Performance also has a European specialist on hand to take care of your vintage or late model British, German, Swedish, or Italian vehicle.
Recently we gave a MINI Cooper S a performance suspension rebuild – camber plates, urethane bushings, Koni shocks, a Wilwood brake upgrade, and a Milltek header install. To top it off we installed a Wilwood big brake kit in the front to improve the stopping power. Pics will be up in the gallery soon.
This past season, Whitehead Performance mechanically refreshed a 1971 Volvo P1800E. We did a performance rebuild on the engine (cam, header), resealed the transmission and overdrive unit, rebuilt the steering box, and cleaned up the brakes and suspension.
