Common Services Performed On Classic Cars

Typically when you buy a classic car, it's NOT in perfect condition. Isn't that the point? If you wanted a perfect vehicle, you probably would have gone something more modern but you are a classic car lover. You wanted to own a piece of history, maybe the same car your grandma or great-grandma owned? Whatever your reason may be, you probably know that you'll have to get at least some work done on it by now. Our classic car restoration shop is here to talk to you about a few of the common services performed on classic cars in this week's blog.

If you're looking for a custom motor option outside of the typical crate engine, we've got you covered! We can build an engine that is specifically built for your particular vehicle, with things like your driving style, vehicle weight, gearing, transmission type, altitude, fuel type, etc taken into consideration so you get the absolute best combination possible. You don't have a generic vehicle, so why have a generic, assembly line built engine in it?

One of the most challenging aspects of building and restoring a classic car or truck is dealing with all of the rot, rust, scale and grime on body panels and parts. Sandblasting is one of the most effective to remove rust from a classic car restoration project. Sandblasting is the process of stripping old paint and rust from the surface of body panels, parts, and frames with compressed air and an abrasive material. It's a quick, inexpensive, and effective way to remove contaminants/rust leaving you with a "clean" metal surface that provides you with an ideal base for priming and painting.

When a client brings their vehicle in for a full restoration that requires tear down, we disassemble and catalog every piece on the vehicle to ensure that the vehicle is put back in its original condition and that all panels, trim, molding placements, etc fit properly. The body is pulled off the frame and the frame is restored. We'll do all necessary rust repair and rust prevention to ensure the best quality for your classic. This process limits ongoing maintenance and future restoration situations.

When the seats of a vehicle are beyond replacement or when a customer wants a new interior, we can either repair or replace the entire upholstery of the vehicle. If you wish to preserve the vehicle's original upholstery, we can preserve and improve that upholstery, making it look new again.
