Citroen Classics is a family run business looking after classic Citroen cars and vans in the UK and worldwide. Our workshop and body repair / paint shop can handle any job from changing a bulb to a full high-quality restoration. With almost everything able to be done in house, we can keep much better control over the quality of the finished product. Our parts department stocks over 2000 different lines for models from Traction Avant to BX and is constantly adding new lines in response to demand. We produce / commission many spare parts ourselves where there is demand for RHD specific items or where the only other available parts are of unacceptable quality.
Darrin is a qualified mechanic and has been repairing Citroen vehicles since 1987. In April 2006 he and wife Kristina set up Citroen Classics, with the aim of offering a better level of service, workmanship and parts availability to the Citroen enthusiast. Specialising in the older "classic" models (Traction Avant, DS/ID, 2CV etc, H Van, SM, GS/A, CX, Visa, and BX), Citroen Classics has gone from strength to strength. Originally sharing a workshop in Brentford, West London, Citroen Classics quickly grew to the point that it needed its own workshop in order to continue to provide the high standard of service which their customers demanded.
In 2008 it moved to the current workshop premises by the River Thames at Staines upon Thames. As the demand for spare parts increased, our parts department expanded and moved into various other buildings on the same site. In 2023 the spare parts operation outgrew the space available at Staines and moved to a larger premises 40 minutes away in Wokingham. Kristina runs the parts department and looks after admin for both sides of the company.
Darrin and Kristina are both Citroen enthusiasts, having owned models from Traction Avant to C-Crosser. They are both active in the Citroen Car Club and are also members of 2CVGB and the Traction Owners Club. In 2016 Darrin and Kristina organised the DS 60th Anniversary "Yarmouth to Barmouth" event.
Citroen Classics has run Technical Weekends for the Citroen Car Club D Section, where owners come along and learn about maintaining their car by doing jobs on it, with expert help at hand if they are not sure about anything.
