Transport & Vehicle Collections
Transport and multi-purpose vehicle conservation has been at the very core of Ian Clark Restoration since it was formed in 1983
Transport and multi-purpose heritage vehicle collections are vast in quantity and diverse in identity.
Their conservation and continued preservation is complex and can be quantified based on their operational or static status or more importantly their interpretive, educational, outreach and cultural heritage value.
Their restoration and continued operation has to be balanced against many far-reaching ethical criteria as well as investing in the traditional craft based skills required to carry out repairs and maintenance, however transport collections convey a powerful message when conserved and displayed in many diverse cultural heritage environments.
Choosing an appropriate, deliverable and rewarding conservation methodology may result in a challenging journey which will include many project compromises, ethical debates and fiscal pressures but whether your vehicle is art-based, traditional transport collection, listed building or registered war memorial Ian Clark Restoration can support your conservation project with experience, sector knowledge and impartial advice.
