About Us

Specialised Vehicles was established in 1983 by John Burke at Orangeville, a rural suburb near Camden, NSW.

Johns original grounding was in the Panel Beating Trade and he has also owned and operated a successful Smash Repair Business for many years which employed a minimum of 10 staff.

He gained a Diploma of Education and went on to teach at TAFE for 22 years training future tradesmen numerous skills in Vehicle Repairs, Alterations and Engineering.  With his eagerness to expand on his skills and think outside the square, he commenced his new business “Specialised Vehicles” in 1983, specialising in 6 wheelers (extra or lazy axle conversions) and dual, space and single cabin conversions. John's vehicle conversions have provided a flexible alternative to those who want the most out of their towing, recreational and work vehicles.

John also has 40 years experience in the Motor Racing Industry as a driver, fabricator, repairer and a reputation for accuracy in jigging, alignment and formal measuring.

Currently, he can be seen enjoying his Magenta R/T Charger, competing in the Nc Class.
