World-class restorations and legendary turnkey recreations of cult vehicles. Created for you.
Formerly known as Victory Automotive, Cartel Works Ltd is a world-class vehicle restorer with many years of experience restoring classic road and race vehicles. We are the restorer of choice for the World of Wearable Art and Classic Cars Museum in Nelson, New Zealand and we maintain the museum's collection. We also manufacturer bespoke, turn-key, sports car reproductions to order and offer a vehicle sourcing and import service. We service New Zealand and International clients.
We offer expert knowledge and experience of vehicle restorations (from tiny bubble cars through to light trucks), combined with exceptional practical skills, and a pragmatic, open approach. We work with the best suppliers Nelson and New Zealand has to offer to ensure your restoration is high quality, will more than satisfy your needs, and will last the test of time. Cartel Works is genuinely passionate about doing things correctly and to an exceptional standard, while keeping the customer front of mind at all times. We keep you well in the loop, with regular progress updates and images of the project's progress updated as we go and brought together at the end of the project as a record of the restoration.
Alongside our world-class restoration services, we build a range of exceptionally crafted reproduction sports cars. These reproduction vehicles are examples of the best vehicles that have achieved cult status because of their outstanding design or racing prowess (or both). Because of their cult status, only the extremely wealthy can now afford many of the vehicles our cars are based on. Because of us many enthusiasts can now afford to own one of these outstanding vehicles. These are not kit cars, these are fully operational, turn-key vehicles, engineered for the roads and laws of New Zealand, Australia and Pacific countries, refined for reliability and performance, registered and ready to go.
If you are seeking a particular vehicle we can also help you find, assess, and purchase it. We'll also organise delivery to you, importation, and preparation and certification for New Zealand as required.
If you have any questions at all about our services please feel free to get in touch. We are happy to talk with you about your project at any time.
