British Motor Heritage Limited (BMH) is a British company specialising in the manufacture of bodies and body parts for historic and classic British cars, and based in Witney, Oxfordshire.

HistoryEdit

BMH was established in 1975, as a subsidiary of British Leyland, to supply genuine components for classic British cars, using original tools wherever possible.[1]

BMH started using legacy jigs and tools to produce complete bodyshells for historic models in 1988, with its MG MGB replacement body, the car had been out of production for 8 years. In 1991 it restarted production of MG Midget bodies.[2]

BMW obtained BMH when it acquired the Rover Group in 1994[3]

In 2001 BMW sold BMH back into private ownership, by which time it was also producing Triumph TR6 bodies.[4] Later they added various Mini marques to their range, including the Clubman in 2004.[3]
