About Ristes Motors…
In 1945, a lone engineer restored a Rolls-Royce engine in a small garage in Nottingham. His high standards made an immediate impact amongst discerning motorists and the Ristes Motors’ reputation was born. Then, twenty-year-old Ghosts were in daily use, Phantom III’s and Wraiths were nicely “run in” and the MKVI and Silver Wraith were but prototypes.
Motoring has since changed and developed. We too have expanded, and now embrace all the skills and technology involved in the restoration of luxury vehicles. However, we still hold dear two basic principles: We specialise exclusively in Rolls-Royce and Bentleys, and we strive to abide by those standards set by Henry Royce.
About The Managing Director…
“At the age of fifteen I began an indentured apprenticeship with Ristes Motor Company which lasted five years. Sadly after I gained my apprenticeship a few years later the owner, Mr Ken Hucknall an extremely fine engineer, who had passed his skills to me throughout my apprenticeship, passed away. His wife, Janet, then promoted me to workshop manager and I ran Ristes Motor Company on her behalf for a further seven years. When Mrs Hucknall decided to retire I purchased the company from her and developed it to todays present standard operating in much larger premises.”Steve Lovatt – Managing Director
