We have a reputation for quality second to none. We are dedicated to bringing the art of custom coach building to the highest standard. Classic Car Restoration is our passion and our business. Our goal is to learn, understand and perfect each and every car being restored. There is only one-way to restore the body and soul of a classic car: the right way.
We put our heart and soul into each restoration and a little bit of ourselves rolls out of the shop with each car. We meticulously restore each car as if it were our own, making sure each car is the best of the best. Every restoration we complete can be picked out of a crowd of cars, each one being recognized for the detailed work that has become our signature.
Every full restoration is a min. of 3000 hrs to 4000 hrs. We do it all: mechanics, chassis, bodywork, panel beating, metal fabrication, woodworking, framing, electrics, interior and top. All work and detail is done in shop and approved by Richard; his standard for excellence goes into each part of every car. Only machining and chrome are done elsewhere and approved by Richard.
