Having spent many years working within the restoration industry for other people, Ian decided that the time was right to start up on his own in 2005.
Milford Vintage Engineering takes pride in offering a high-quality, personal service to all our customers. This includes a strong awareness of the value of the vehicles under our care, both while on-site and in transit. We very much respect the fact that not only is the vehicle the owner’s pride and joy, but is a significant financial asset in its own right. All vehicles in the company’s care are appropriately protected by insurance.
We give every vehicle and component the individual care and consideration this meticulous and demanding work deserves. Milford Vintage Engineering also benefits from our excellent collection of specialist tools that enable us to perform our work efficiently to the high standards required by both the manufacturer and the customer.
1929 Lagonda 3 Litre
“Just a short note to thank you for the work on the Lagonda. It is a transformed car and as you said will now rev freely and reach unexpected speeds unseen before!! You and the team did a great job. I’m really pleased that the old girl is running so well. My trip on Sunday to Brodie and back via Cawdor was superb, really enjoying the run with car performing fantastically. The car ran smoothly, surge of power, accelerated up hill, and cruised easily at an indicated 65. Also pleasing to see that the oil drops are minimal compared with before. Less embarrassment. Well worth the time it took resulting in a quality job. “

Various work including servicing, brakes, new petrol tank, etc
Always a pleasure to pop in to see you and Ian. Norman and I hope you have no plans to retire in the near future! It would be a challenge to find such friendly and helpful carers for our classics. My other Healey, a red Mk 1 two seater, is due back on Tuesday and I look forward to introducing you to it.
“I am greatly impressed by Ian Milford’s comprehensive knowledge of the subject – both in general and in aspects specific to individual models. (When needed, this is backed up by his impressive collection of workshop manuals.) He has demonstrated the effectiveness of his diagnostic abilities, his attention to detail and his regard for delivering a thoroughly neat result. Furthermore, the firm is small enough for its customers to feel a true sense of individual attention, and this assists in making it a pleasure to do business with them.”
(Owner of various cars including Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Austins).
