to the Rootes (post vintage) Parts Service web site

Our history
Dating back from 1979, we have been more or less active in keeping Rootes cars alive in Holland.
First as some extended family hobby, then founding the Rootes group car register in Holland in 1980.
In 1981 we sat together and formed the Sunbeam-Talbot and Rootes register of Holland. In 1997 this club was renamed more consistently into the Rootes Car club of Holland.
This car club is run by very enthusiast club members, publishing their magazine Correspondence 4 times a year and organizing many outings, meetings and special events.
Please check out their web site by following the link on this page.
From 2000 we wanted to professionalize our services to Rootes Car enthusiasts by founding a company specializing in parts for Rootes group cars from 1945 to 1975.
This has lead to the Rootes (Post vintage) Parts Service, still run as a parttime activity helping enthusiasts to quality parts.
We respond to emails daily and pack and ship parts in the weekends.

What we can do for you
We supply parts for all types of Rootes group cars from 1936 onwards.
We have decided focus our investment scheme on parts that are required to keep your car on the road and are less and less common to find.
For more common bread-and-butter parts we consider the internet (f.e. Ebay) as a good source for you.      
Our new old stock supply is still considerably large but changes constantly. That makes it impossible to publish partslists per car.  
We recently added new lines of parts and extended some others.
Please check out this website regularly to learn more !

How to order
We have no shop-to-drop-by but we rely on email. We do our best to answer questions within 2-3 days.
Allways provide as much details as you have on the car where a chassisnumber is preferred.
Do not hesitate to put pictures in the emails to clarify what you are looking for.   
All our Rootes parts are registred on original partsnumbers, so please refer to these Rootes numbers as much as possible when enquiring or ordering parts form us.
For those that have no partslist: we can supply you with a copy from as little as 30 !
We accept Paypal. For European sales we prefer banktransfer as these are quick, safe and cheap.
