Runnymede Motor Company
Based in a delightful rural setting, yet just minutes from the M4 and M40 motorways
and Heathrow Airport, Runnymede has a long and proud record of handling interesting
motorcars for all manner of clients. Typical customers range from those setting
out on the classic road with a standard DB7, to serious collectors seeking such
relative rarities as an Aston Martin V8 Vantage 580X, Ferrari 288 GTO or Porsche
GT3. Since its foundation in 1978, Runnymede has so far found new homes for some
4,200 motorcars, around 1,500 of which have been Aston Martins. We are regular supporters
of the major classic car shows at home and abroad, and just as likely to be found
at Techno Classica in Essen as Birmingham’s NEC – keep an eye open for us and don’t hesitate
to come and say hello.
Martin trained as an estate agent and surveyor but, like most of us born with petrol
in their veins, soon gave in to the lure of the motorcar and has remained in the
motor trade ever since, establishing Runnymede Motor Company in 1978.
A firm supporter of the Aston Martin Owners Club and its events, he has also successfully
raced a number of AM products over the years - most notably the ex-Peter Foden DB5
and a superb evocation of Project DP214.
Malcolm initially worked in the print industry after leaving school, but was another
to feel there was more enjoyment to be had from life in the fast lane. Following
a spell selling Jaguars for Henlys, he joined Martin at Runnymede Motor Company
and is still there over 30 years later.
