Crailville Update

Crailville was founded in 1975 and while in operation built an excellent reputation in the field of traditional coachbuilding. The highly skilled team completed numerous high-profile projects.

The focus was on recreating or restoration of the bodies of historic vehicles. This was often completed with minimal information. The highly skilled team often recreated masterpieces based on photographs, negatives, or old photo albums.

Their completed projects have garnered many awards over the years including awards at the following rallies:

  • The Louis Vuitton at the Parc de Bagatelle in Paris
  • The Hurlingham Club in London
  • The Rolls-Royce Club Annual Rally
  • Pebble Beach in California
  • Edwardian Silver Ghost
  • Modern touring limousine for the Nobility and Heads of State

Furthermore, they were one of the few coachbuilding companies to be admitted into The Guild of Mastercraftsmen.

Crailville Business Offering

Crailville provided a whole list of services in the coachbuilding industry including:

  • Reproducing vintage car bodies
  • Prototyping new designs
  • Concept show cars (manufacturing designs)
  • Bespoke coachwork

Their specialty was recreating the full, original bodywork of vintage masterpieces whose bodywork has been lost over time.
