About Us

Where did it all start?

Always having a passion for old Holden’s, David Smith began purchasing, dismantling & collecting Holden parts, primarily HK’s HT’s and HG’s  of all body types.  He established Bellarine Classic Auto Restorations on the 1st of September 1991 at Moolap located between Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula in Victoria and has expanded to two industrial sheds both in Moolap. Having been in the auto repair industry (panel beater)since 1981, Dave is a true specialist in every aspect of these vehicles and provides an informative service including, parts; sourcing, dating and identifying to the particular model, body type or build date along with general parts information for all HKTG models.  From the workshop Dave does insurance quotes as well as appraisals and in house services including; front end rebuilds, bushes and ball joints, disc brake & V8 diff conversions, auto and V8 conversions, structural rust repairs for roadworthy requirements. Skip forward to 2015 and Cherie has joined the team, having a similar background in restoration of her own Monaro and Brougham and passion for owning and driving H-KTG’s. Cherie’s specialty is assisting customers with restoration project management, itemising customer’s parts for restoration, cataloguing and listing parts onto the online store and eBay and sorting out Dave’s horde of parts!! This will be an ongoing process, so please bare with us!!??

What have we got and what else do we do?

We also have some New Old Stock parts and panels as well as some Nasco accessories and options. We are committed to supplying a broad range of parts and services to aid in restoration and send parts to all areas of Australia & New Zealand and many other countries by request. We buy cars whole and in parts, and attend swap meets Australia wide, and quite often are invited to buy parts from customers and referrals after a project car is completed. We have our trade stall at the annual swap meets at Bendigo and Ballarat in Victoria, Toowoomba in Qld, Cessnock and Clarendon in New South Wales and Campbelltown in South Australia, as well as the Bi-annual Monaro Nationals & state titles events. Dave is known for the miles he travels, year in and year out, sourcing cars & parts and hauling them back to Geelong to be sold as potential project cars or if they are too far gone to be dismantled and chopped up for much needed repair sections.
