Specialist Trim Upholstery for Classic Cars

JOHN SKINNER (MANUFACTURING) LTD specialises exclusively in replacement interior trim & upholstery for British Classic Cars. As a specialist company, in a niche field, for 30+ years we have stood the test of time. Most owners re-trim their classic car once - so trust your Austin Healey interior trim & upholstery to us for the very best results.

  • Established in 1980 to produce quality interior trim for British classic cars to original specification.
  • Operating from a craft workshop in the small Cotswold town of Cirencester, situated about 80 miles (130 kilometres) west of London.
  • We ship worldwide by land, sea & air.
  • We accept payment by all major credit cards, bank draft, cheque and Paypal.
  • Quality Craftmanship, Custom Specification Available & Specialist Tooling

Over the years our reputation has been linked with quality & originality. All but a few items are produced in our own factory by a team of dedicated trimmers and machinists. We can also produce that very special one-off custom interior, offering a more individual interior should that be required – perhaps a special colour or special coloured piping.

We can high frequency weld / emboss any trim items with original welded patterns as featured on the original car, such as the Austin Healey BJ8 interior quarter panels and seat parts – very few companies can offer this service. We are also one of the only stockists of Austin Healey chrome black / silver piping (used on BJ8 seat covers) in the world. 

Made To Order

Because of the specialist nature of trim manufacture, we will be manufacturing your order especially for your car – a custom made automotvie trim kit - this typically takes 3 to 4 weeks depending upon our work load.
