Shape the Future of Preserving the Past with Finch Restorations

[ref: parts202403]

Finch Restorations is Australia's premier vehicle restoration firm. We specialise in the complete body-off, ground-up restoration of Veteran to Modern-Classic era (1890-1990) cars, trucks, and motor-cycles.

We have a team of highly experienced professionals who have a deep understanding of all aspects of the restoration process. Our workshops are equipped with the technologies, tools, and equipment to ensure that projects are completed to the highest standards of quality and authenticity.

Celebrating six decades of excellence, we are excited to expand our team at our new flagship site at Hindmarsh, near the Adelaide CBD, dedicated to restoring the glory of classic, prestige, and vintage vehicles for the future generations.

Finch Restorations has recently entered a partnership with UK-based Electrogenic.  The partnership brings Electrogenic's revolutionary electric vehicle (EV) conversion kits, tailored specifically for classic cars, to Australia's classic automotive enthusiasts.

We are establishing a new flagship branch in Hindmarsh close to the Adelaide Enterainment Centre. A two stage process, we are currently establishing our Paint Shop in stage one. Stage two incorporates areas for restorations, repairs and maintenance, Trim Shop, and concierge vehicle storage.

This role will require being based in our Mount Barker branch for the first 4-6 months, for induction and training purposes, before subsequent transition to the new Hindmarsh branch.

Ultimately, this role will be based at our new branch in Hindmarsh.
