Our Heritage and History

Established in 1919, we are a family run company that has been in operation for over 90 years...

Douglas Garage Limited

Douglas Garage Limited was founded by Mr W.E Douglas SNR in 1919. In 1937 these premises were built especially to sell and service the Triumph Marque and run as a family concern.

Standard Distributors

In the 1930's we were Standard distributors, later to become Standard Triumph distributors. This was until the finish of Triumph models in the early 1980's. During this period we also held big franchises for Rover, Land Rover, Morris and Austin.

Today's History

Douglas Motor Services was originally formed in 1993 by John Douglas and Mark Douglas. The business is now being run by Mark Douglas CAE Eng Tec AMIMI who has 27 years experience in the trade.

We have been trading from our current location in Northampton town centre since 1993.

We have moved on from the days of being car distributors and have tailored our expertise into classic car restoration, car restoration, body repair, mechanical repairs and motorsport preperation. We now restore many of the old Triumph vehicles that we once distributed. We offer a whole host of services and our expert knowledge and quality workmanship is second to none.
