The Adrian Johnson story

adrian and fatherChris Johnson – Adrian’s father – started Post Vintage after becoming disenchanted with work on his own Aston Martin DB2 and therefore undertook the work he required himself to a standard which quickly gained many admirers in Aston Martin and vintage car circles. Word of mouth soon played a part and Post Vintage began to specialise purely in classic Aston Martin work.

Adrian started helping out in the workshop at the tender age of 12 years old and as soon as he left school joined the firm, quickly developing an excellent reputation as a metal worker. Gradually becoming immersed in the day-to-day running, Adrian steered the business into the enterprise it is today and renamed it into Adrian Johnson two years ago. They now operate from an 18,000 square foot purpose built state of the art facility, providing in-house workshops, paint room and trim shop and offering a range of services from Aston Martin servicing to factory schedules, to concours prize winning restorations.

Their highly skilled staff have worked on some of the most significant Aston Martin models made and produced work of an unrivalled quality. Additionally they offer a selected number of classic Aston Martins for sale and provide sales and acquisition consultancy to clients worldwide.

The team at Adrian Johnson is passionate about classic Aston Martins and they can demonstrate how this is reflected in the quality of the work we produce. They cordially invite you to arrange to view their facilities and see why serious collectors trust them to look after their classic Aston Martin requirements.
