About Us

Established in 2018, Short Shift Speed Shop is a classic car workshop based in Perth, Western Australia.

Short Shift is owned and operated by London born, William Keogh, a specialist motorsport engineer with over a decades experience in the industry.

Following the completion of his degree, William began his career at a workshop specialising in prestige road and race cars. He then turned his hand to the restoration and maintenance of pre-war Bentley motorcars at a nearby company, where he subsequently spent the next eight years.


Having always wanted to own a place of his own, the opportunity finally arose when William made the move from London to Perth and, Short Shift Speed Shop was finally born! 

The workshop now specialises in hands on restorative and maintenance work, bespoke builds and is a licensed dealer.

William is passionate about preserving the art of engineering and works hard to ensure everything undertaken by Short Shift is done with traditional methods and standards in mind. 

Short Shift Speed Shop is now one of a handful of workshops here in Perth that specialises in classic and vintage vehicles.
