OVERDRIVE SPARES - THE OVERDRIVE SPECIALISTS Overdrive Spares was founded in 1986 by Ernie Garbutt, Ex-Laycock Senior International Service Engineer and his wife Stella. Ernie had already notched up 35 years of experience in dealing with all Laycock De-Normanville overdrive units plus a wealth of experience gained whilst liaising with car manufacturers competition departments, where he travelled worldwide servicing rally car overdrives. This, coupled with the fact that when Laycocks finally went into liquidation, Ernie was able to buy all of the company's obsolete stock ensuring that most of the parts supplied nowadays are still the original Laycock parts!
In 1996, the company relocated to larger premises on the same business park in order to house its vast stock. Sadly, Ernie died in early 2007 but his wife, Stella, is still very much involved in the business with son-in-law David Twigger.
With their fast, friendly, efficient service and a technical knowledge second to none, the company has firmly established itself as the best overdrive re-conditioning specialists in the world with unrivalled original stock.
