From Our Clients

The Congleton crew is your best option.

Taylor clearly understood the bond between an owner and his LR and told me that he would perform a complete assessment and give me an honest accounting of what it would to bring her back to life and back home to NY.

We’ll certainly be working with Congleton for all our Land Rover needs.

My husband and I recently purchased a 1995 Classic LWB ("Big Blue") from Congleton and we only have good things to say about the team there. We contacted them about viewing the Rover and they kindly coordinated to be available after regular business hours to accommodate our schedule that week. Taylor walked us through the entire vehicle, answering all of our questions (no matter how small). He also walked us through what maintenance would look...

My husband and I recently purchased a 1995 Classic LWB ("Big Blue") from Congleton and we only have good things to say about the team there. We contacted them about viewing the Rover and they kindly coordinated to be available after regular business hours to accommodate our schedule that week. Taylor walked us through the entire vehicle, answering all of our questions (no matter how small). He also walked us through what maintenance would look like over the years of ownership; highlighting the attention to detail he would give the vehicle when it came to him for service. Both Parker and Taylor have been amazing throughout the process, readily available by phone or email. We never felt pressure from them or sensed that they were getting impatient with our many questions. What really struck a cord with us was how much they care for the vehicles they service and sell. It's clear that nothing leaves their lot that they aren't 100% about and customer satisfaction is their first priority. That really gives you peace of mind when you take your Rover on the road, knowing that an expert (which Taylor clearly is) has worked on it and that he and Parker are only a call away if you need anything. The purchasing process was a breeze and Parker even delivered the vehicle to us! Needless to say, we're thrilled with Big Blue and look forward to years of Rover ownership. We'll certainly be working with Congleton for all our Land Rover needs.

He has completely transformed the feel of my Rover!

I sent my 1995 Range Rover Classic across the country from California to Taylor, based purely on a few conversations we had and what I had seen of his work.

The Congleton Service Philosophy

Staying True To The Heritage Of The Range Rover Classic!

It’s hard to believe it’s been 30 years since the Range Rover Classic was introduced in North America, and over 20 years since the last soft-dash RRC rolled off the line.

Our families Series IIA 88” taught us early on; Land Rovers were tough. Our first 1995 RRC SWB showed us they could be beautiful as well. Love at first sight is a real thing, and our first RRC was true love. Since that first encounter we have spent a nonstop 15 years driving, tinkering, stress testing and improving these Beasts of Blighty.

Years of experience have allowed us to appreciate the marque as it was intended, as well as the knowledge to understand how the vehicle ages over time, her strengths and weaknesses, and what sorts of improvements can be made. At Congleton Service we firmly believe in originality, and doing things “Proper”. These cars were designed a certain way in the U.K. to deliver what Land Rover wanted for its clients.

We don’t build Range Rover Classics that stray too far from the original. What we do here is build the cleanest, most correct, most original Range Rover Classics in the world. It’s quite a statement, one that takes all day to live up to. We strive for the 50-year mark; Restorations that are going to last 50 years before the next rebuild is needed. Well cared for, our builds last indefinitely.

In contrast many people are building up hot-rod versions of the Classic, and this does not appeal to us. These are not true Range Rover Classics, and will never hold value over time. For this reason, we don’t believe in Corvette engines, superchargers, 8 speed transmissions or Dana 60 rear ends.  Certainly we improve some systems to benefit our clients, but every effort is made to stay true to the heritage of the Range Rover Classic. This is the vehicle we have dedicated our lives and business to; this is the most iconic SUV ever.

When you open the bonnet on CS builds, the engine bay has a better and cleaner appearance than the day it rolled out of Solihull. This is no accident. It takes the successful completion, in proper order, of 10,000 operations to get the restoration to this point.  Building this way is slow, painful, expensive and frustrating. We are here to tell you there are no shortcuts, no easy ways to save time on our builds, and no workarounds found on a forum.

This is highly skilled men, setting bolts and components by hand, six days a week. This is starting over if a step gets missed, and not being afraid to tear it down if it’s not perfect. This is the worlds most iconic SUV, hand-built in Colchester, Vermont. When you are ready to take the journey, we’d be honored to have it be in a Congleton Certified Classic. Thanks for visiting our site, hope we’ll see you soon.

Drive safe,

Taylor Congleton
