A day in the life of the Vintage Wireman

Date: 19 April 2021

Rory - The Vintage Wireman


A day in the life of the Vintage Wireman can never be described as ordinary or predictable!

When we asked Rory what he was currently working on, he had a pre-war Bentley, a Wolseley, a Triumph TR4 and a 1970s Mercedes lined up for that day.

Rory Oliver-Hall is the founder of The Vintage Wireman and has been fascinated by engines and electronics from childhood - as he puts it, he’s always had a passion for tinkering.  His background includes a graduate training scheme with Rover, impressively joining the Stewart F1 Team working on electronics and control systems, and beyond that into industry sectors covering automotive, aerospace, rail and power.

But his passion for vintage cars led him to setting up his own workshop in the heart of the Cotswolds, which gives him excellent access to customers in the Midlands, Wales and the south.

Whilst he specialises in re-wiring, restoration and installation for veteran, vintage pre-war and classic vehicles, there’s pretty much nothing that Rory won’t turn his hand to.  He says some of the more unusual projects have included a 1960s Trojan Bubble Car and a 1930s Leyland Lioness Fire Engine (pictured above), repaired in readiness for sale by the owner.   

Besides working on fantastic classics owned by his customers, Rory also has a passion for collecting.  He admits to having eighteen in his stash, but you can be sure he’s always on the look out for additions.  His favourite for taking out on sunny days has got to be his fabulous blue Lotus Elise - and why wouldn’t it be!

We are delighted to welcome The Vintage Wireman as a specialist distributor for the Powerlite range of products and look forward to a long and successful partnership.
