Classic Car Electrics

Enthusiast’s Restoration Manual

This full colour book provides clear and complete information for the classic enthusiast who wishes to service, repair or improve car electrical systems.


Although classic car electrical systems are notoriously idiosyncratic, temperamental and difficult to work with, a key to keeping an older vehicle on the road is correct and regular maintenance of the electrics. This book contains extensive, well-illustrated information for the classic enthusiast who wishes to service, repair or upgrade their car. The combination of the basics of how and why things work, all in plain language, along with extensive colour photos and diagrams means that, with a reasonable tool kit, a little common sense and this book, the owner should be able to tackle pretty much any electrical fault in any classic car as well as maintenance. Definitely a must have for anyone who owns, or plans to own a classic.

About the author

Martin Thaddeus was born in Crawley in 1959, one of nine children. upon leaving art college, Martin worked as a graphic artist to a local paper, but surgery to his tight wrist prompted a change of direction, and he retrained in panel-beating. After 10 years in crash repair and salvage, Martin chose to specialise in classic restoration, which appealed more to his creative nature. Customers have always been welcome in Martin's workshop, and many have gotten their hands dirty under his watchful eye. Married for 23 years and with 3 grown up children, Martin recently lost a kidney, while his wife Elaine gained one!
