About Us 
Essex Classic Cars was created by myself Steve Abbs and my long term business partner and best friend Simon Croft. 
We run a couple of other businesses alongside the Classic Car Sales & Body Restoration so the pressure is off us somewhat, enabling us to mix business and pleasure at the same time. 
Simon plays more of a role in MotorAid, our parent company, while I mostly deal with the classic car side. We are both passionate about classics and have been involved in owning, restoring and showing cars since we were teenagers. 
My background has always been in the motor trade firstly as an apprentice mechanic, then spending many years working with Mercedes Benz before going it alone and eventually owning a network of car and commercial garages with around fifty employees. 
Our values and points of culture are based around respect, which is driven through the heart of each business we run including Essex Classic Cars. 
Our showroom and bodyshop is located in Basildon, Essex, 15 minutes drive from the M25, J29. 
Southend and Stansted Airports are also within easy reach. 
Please take a look around the website and do contact me if we can be of service.
