More about Complete Classic Car Restorations

It can take a long time to restore your car or truck. We do what's referred to as frame off restorations. We disassemble your vehicle to the bare frame. We clean everything and make sure every part works like new. We restore or replace all the parts, and paint them or powdered coat them before reinstalling them.

Classic vehicle restoration takes time. It can be costly and we urge you to give this very careful consideration. You'll really enjoy a project like this if you understand how cars and trucks are built. Novices may lose focus on the restoration and be amazed by the expense.

You can most likely buy a fully restored or partially restored car for less than it will cost to restore your car – probably much less.

Car or truck restorations are right for people that have a history with their vehicle. They've owned it for years…it's been in the family and it means too much to buy another vehicle.

We require a deposit for our work and bill each week against your deposits. You'll add additional funds when needed so we may continue our work until your project is complete. You can inspect our progress at any time and we take digital photos for every stage of your restoration.

We give fair estimates from experts that have been doing this for more than 50 years but please expect to pay more than the estimate. Every part on your vehicle is disassembled and inspected. We recondition or we replace as we reassemble. If we find unanticipated areas needing repair, that increases your price. It is not possible to anticipate everything needing replacement or repair. Fabrication of metal or rust repair can drive up starting estimates by 40%. Custom work can add another 20% to that.

Make sure this is an area of interest for you and that you can afford to bring your vehicle back to life. We'll be honored to help you. Call us with any questions or to simply discuss your project.
