About BODYSHOP 47, our story

Since 1988 one of the main drivers to support the development of Nene Overland has been the requirement for high quality vehicle body repair and refinishing to be able to present long lasting quality workmanship on thousands of vehicles sold and serviced over the years.
In the early days there was a need for an existing farming business to diversify which led to the development of the Land Rover sales and service business that continues to grow today as Nene Overland. With a team of 40 staff on hand providing parts mail order, vehicle service and sales all supporting Bodyshop 47. Our Bodyshop has cut its teeth dealing with the challenge of repairing and refinishing a mixture of aluminium and mild steel bodied vehicles. In the early days mainly classic and modern Land Rover models were catered for but over time clients have kept coming back asking for attention on a wide range of diverse and often very valuable treasured automobiles. Our passion and experience, as ever is on hand to help clients at home and abroad.
As the years have rolled by Andrew and Stephanie Harrison-Smith and the Nene team continue to have support from a great team of true old school craftsmen at Bodyshop 47 situated just off the A47 east coast road, outside Peterborough. Now the team of 10 led by Paul Drury are delighted to cater for all your needs from minor repairs, involved accident damage, specialist modification or classic refurbishment. Paul has been in the body repair industry all his life so has seen lots of changes since the days when he ran a coach building business manufacturing light weight wooden horse racing carts, often for some rather interesting clients such as Harry Secombe and even a bit of royalty on occasion. Our attention is waiting to get your vehicle back out there on the road looking the part as quickly as possible.
We look forwards to advising you on the best resolve or repair in the near future and to become part of our story that is Bodyshop47.com
